College Brief

As Scotland’s only Jesuit school, St Aloysius’ College embraces a brand of Catholic education for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 which places formation of the whole person at the centre of all learning. As soon as a child slips on the Green Blazer, he or she becomes part of an educational tradition which dates back 500 years and is practised all over the world.

Founded in 1859 and located in Glasgow city centre, young people at St Aloysius’ College are taught not only to be academically competent, but also to look on the world with empathy, offering their talents and energies for the benefit of others. The Green Blazer has come to symbolise the College’s mission, which sees pupils achieve academic success without losing their interests outside the classroom, taking on challenges with a sense of fun.

As a school, St Aloysius’ College uses the five elements of Jesuit Education – Intellectual Formation, Magis Curriculum, Religious Formation, Pastoral Care and Perspectives and Horizons – to frame the Aloysian experience.
