About Junior School

Welcome to the St Aloysius’ College Junior School, a place where each child is known and loved as an individual and academic achievement goes hand-in-hand with making a difference in our community and the wider world.

To best meet the needs of every child, the Junior School is split into two sections, Early Years and Juniors, with a special progression year in Primary 7 to ensure children are fully prepared for making the step into Senior 1.

Early Years involves Kindergarten to Primary 3 children, providing a happy and friendly environment in which pupils can blossom.

Primary 4 to Primary 7 children move through the Junior School in inspiring surroundings, where they can flourish as people whilst being prepared academically for Senior School.

With small class sizes and specialist subjects in Languages, Art, and Science, our Junior School has a proven track record of success.

P3 (picture vocab) - 29 months ahead

P4 (word decoding) - 23 months ahead
