Located in the centre of Glasgow, St Aloysius' College Junior School is a
Catholic school for boys and girls from age 3 (Kindergarten) to age 12

which our young people can become confident and motivated learners.
Christian values inform every aspect of school life and children are
prepared for and celebrate the Sacraments within the College.
The core subjects are taught by the class teachers in attractive and well
designed classrooms. Science, French/Spanish, Physical Education, Art and
Music are taught by specialist teachers in dedicated rooms. This allows
teachers to gain a generous allocation of non-contact time. We also have
Italian bi-lingual classes within the school.
There is great emphasis on the importance of homework. Both class and
specialist homework is set regularly.
Pupils and staff are encouraged to embrace the Jesuit ideal of service to
others and contribute to the wider school community. A wide range of
after-school activities are offered by our teachers with the aim to assist
