The departmental team offers support both in class and withdrawal of small groups for all areas of the curriculum, working closely with subject teachers, form tutors and Heads of Year. As a team, we are concerned with the boys' academic progress but also very much with pupils' general well being and behaviour. We develop good relationships with the pupils with whom we work and are often able to sort out problems before they become too big or unmanageable. We also run a homework club twice a week after school for those pupils in receipt of in-class support.

Our doors are always open either for boys to come and seek advice on issues concerning them or to offer finely tuned 'listening ears'. We are regularly in touch with parents/carers and anybody else involved with making young persons' lives run more smoothly.

We liaise closely with primary schools and parents to ensure that support which was in place for pupils is built upon and extended into our secondary school curriculum but with the aim of creating independent learning as pupils mature.

We often assist on school trips for all departments in the school, but also organise our own outings for pupils with whom we work. Our aim is to help you develop to your utmost best as a 'whole person' not just as a student of English/Maths/Science etc.

At St Aloysius’ College we aim to treat every member of our community as an individual and together enable each boy to work to the best of his ability. We are very aware that many pupils have special educational needs which require specific support, whether that be with literacy, numeracy or another area.

Our targeted pupils go on to achieve successfully in GCSE’s and are now following courses in our 6th Form or other colleges.
