Mission Statement

'Ready to set the world alight'


The purpose of Jesuit schools is improvement in living and learning for the greater glory of God and the common good. The College is committed to the education of the whole person and the development of young adults of competence, conscience and committed compassion who will be of service in the community. 



We have three pillars to our mission: 

Intellectual rigour 

We spark curiosity to fuel academic excellence, intellectual independence and the motivation for pupils to succeed. 

Social responsibility 

Rooted in shared values and faith, we empower pupils to be fulfilled and have a positive impact on society. 

Opportunity for all 

We provide multiple opportunities and practical pathways to build pupil confidence and maximise potential, whatever their interests. 



Ignatius in his writing calls us to strive for the ‘Magis’- ‘the more’. The more is a key to making choices among competing values. The entire life of Ignatius Loyola was a search for the Magis - that is, the more universal good, the more effective means, the more generous service for others, and the ever greater glory of God. Magis energises us for action. 

At St Ignatius College we will: 

  • Provide opportunities for students, staff, parents and alumni to experience a sense of belonging to a faith-filled Christian community and to commit themselves to being of service to others
  • Respect the role of parents as the primary educators of their children
  • Be enthusiastic in imparting knowledge of Catholic faith and traditions, enabling students to accept truth freely and develop a Christian moral conscience
  • Promote growth and improvement in learning and living for the greater glory of God in the Ignatian way
  • Support students in striving for their personal best- the Magis – in all their endeavours
