Mission Statement

St Ignatius College is a Jesuit school in identity and mission for boys aged 11-18. It was founded at Stamford Hill in 1894 by The Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), with the specific intention of educating Catholic boys of North East London to become “Men for Others”.

We are very proud of St Ignatius College. It has a long tradition and a unique Catholic identity that is learning-centred and supportive in the Ignatian tradition. The College is committed to education of the whole person and the development of young adults of competence, conscience and compassion who will be of service in the community. We strive to recognise God’s presence in all things, to celebrate the pursuit of personal excellence and to live with hope and respect for all creation. Like all Jesuit schools, its aim is to provide a sound, intellectual and technological formation, not as an end in itself but as an aid to the fullest possible development of each individual student.
