Headteacher Welcome

Welcome to St Ignatius College

As Headteacher, it is a pleasure to welcome you to our website which I hope will give you a flavour of life here at St Ignatius College.

First and foremost, our goal is academic excellence and intellectual formation. We believe that with the right support, all students can achieve and they do. We are all boys at KS3 and KS4 and our boys achieve exceptionally well, significantly better than boys locally or nationally.  With a mixed thriving and highly successful Sixth Form, we believe that we have the best of both worlds.

Our students are believed in and cared for: they are known and valued as individuals.  Human flourishing is at the core of our Catholic, Jesuit philosophy of education.  Each individual student is supported to develop fully: academically, socially, emotionally, culturally and spiritually. Our goal is for our students to have the qualifications, confidence, skills and clear sense of self to fulfil their ambitions, live full lives and to go into the world and make it a better place.

Partnership with our parents is fundamental to all we do. We foster strong, open, honest, mutually supportive relationships and welcome and expect parents to be involved in all aspects of school life. We are outward looking and work closely with many other organisations, both locally and nationally.

The social, economic and cultural diversity of our community enriches us.  We are a Catholic, Jesuit school but in addition to Catholics, our students and staff belong to other faiths and other Christian traditions, and we encourage all of them to play a full part in the spiritual life of the school and to gain a deeper understanding of their faith. We have a wide catchment and are oversubscribed but you don’t need to be Catholic to attend this school.  

I warmly invite you and encourage you to visit to witness for yourselves life at St Ignatius College.

Mary O'Keeffe
