St Aloysius’ College –  A Journey of Discernment

 Nestling in Glasgow’s cultural quarter, St Aloysius’ College is set in the centre of an education-focused corner of the city, a stone’s throw from Glasgow School of Art and the Royal Conservatoire.

A Catholic school for boys and girls aged from three to 18, its pupils are part of a strong community in which they are nurtured and inspired to uncover their full potential.

Sharing in a tradition of academic excellence dating back 500 years, the College has a distinguished academic record, with the majority of pupils moving on to university and entering the professions.

Balancing an academic foundation is the wide variety of activity-based opportunities, such as drama, art and outdoor education, all of which give students the chance to develop new talents.

Investment in sport has begun to reap its rewards, with the Under 16 rugby team reaching the final of the Scottish Schools Cup Final. Meanwhile, the Schola, an innovative choral music programme, is also blossoming, with the Junior Schola performing for 12,000 people at the Hydro with world-famous tenor, Andrea Bocelli.

Encouraged to use their God-given talents for the common good, pupils demonstrate impressive commitment to helping others, in keeping with the College’s charitable ethos ‘in the spirit, from the heart, practically’.

Much of the work of the Jesuit Formation at St Aloysius’ College is about allowing young people to start their journey of discernment, a fulfilling adventure. The voyage is one shared in partnership with families and the College community, helping children live by the College motto ‘ad majora natus sum’ – born for greater things.
