Headteacher Welcome

STIGS098

Welcome to St Ignatius College.  As Headteacher of St Ignatius College, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our website which I hope you will find informative and will give you a flavour of life here at the College. 

We are a very distinctive community with a rich heritage and tradition of providing a Jesuit education for boys in north London for over 100 years and for girls in our Sixth Form since 2014. Care for the whole person, in Jesuit terms, cura personalis, is at the heart of our educational philosophy. We recognise each person's individual qualities and needs; our goal as a school is to educate the whole child, academically, emotionally, spiritually, and to help unlock each child's potential so that students will grow to be responsible, fulfilled adults working to make the world a better place and take their place confidently in our fast moving, modern society.

 

We want all in our community to be happy, feel valued and to thrive.  In order to do so, they must be safe, respected as the individual God made them to be and challenged academically.  We aim for our students to be men and women of competence, compassion and conscience. All in our community walk alongside our students on their faith and academic journey to ensure that when they leave us, they have the academic qualifications, confidence, principles, compassion and faith to make a significant contribution to society and be a force for good in the world. Our aim is to be men and women for others, living our faith and finding God in all we do.

We do not work in isolation.  Our partnership with our parents who entrust their children to us is key.   We foster open, honest supportive relationships and welcome parents to be involved in all aspects of school life.

As a school, we are on an exciting journey.  We continue to strive for excellence ensuring outstanding examination results, high quality teaching and learning, and pastoral care. We are incredibly fortunate, especially in such difficult times of funding for schools, to have the financial support of our Trustees, the Society of Jesus.  We are at the end of a £5 million building project which has transformed our learning environment.

We are a happy, caring, welcoming, Catholic community.  Our social, economic and cultural diversity is a real strength of the College.  I warmly invite you to visit and witness for yourselves life at St Ignatius College.

Mary O'Keeffe
