St Aloysius' College


St Aloysius’ College is unique. Scotland’s only Jesuit school is situated at the very heart of the city of Glasgow. Our iconic green blazer is as much a part of the city as the Clyde and Central Station. More than 800 students are educated across the Junior and Senior Schools (3-18). The College has a proud tradition of academic excellence, with results placing us amongst the top performing schools in the country. The College occupies a range of buildings from the imposing and listed 1859 Hanson Building, through the award winning Clavius Science Building to the £8 million sports complex at the very heart of our site. Possibly the most socially diverse of all the Glasgow independent schools, the College is currently engaged in the ‘silent phase’ of a major appeal for further bursary funds.

We are proudly independent and members of HMC, but we are also linked to the world-wide Jesuit network of schools educating over 2.5 million students worldwide.

The College is proudly a Jesuit and Catholic school but its community is diverse.

Our most recent HMIE Inspection Report (May 2024) was extremely positive, recognising a thriving school with a great many strengths and a desire to always seek the best for our children and young people.


Business Management is taught from National 5 level in S3 to Advanced Higher in S6. Economics is offered at Higher and Advanced Higher level.
