Curriculum

Our Juniors curriculum is planned to ensure that every child reaches their full potential. It is centred on strong academic, spiritual and moral beliefs to support each child as they progress through the school. Building upon the early foundations established in Early Years, the curriculum at St Aloysius’ College Junior School is firmly rooted in the characteristics of Jesuit Education and mirrors the principles of Curriculum for Excellence.

In the Junior School, pupils are encouraged to discover personal excellence through a balance of academic and individual achievement. As a school, we recognise that every child in the Green Blazer is different and, in keeping with the principles of Jesuit education, each pupil is given the opportunity to achieve goals at their own pace and ability.

We offer a stimulating and challenging curriculum, rich and varied in nature and offering an excellent foundation in the core subjects of English, Maths, RE, and Humanities.

Our pupils also spend significant time with specialist teachers in Art, Music, PE, Science, and Modern Languages.

All children from Primary 4 - Primary 7 follow our unique Enhanced Modern Foreign Language Programme which is delivered three hours per week. Here they learn Spanish or Italian in a very active way, enhancing their love and understanding of the language.

Every child from Kindergarten to Primary 7 engages in our Outstanding Science Curriculum.
