About Our Senior School

"We want our young people to realise that learning is a lifelong journey.”

Our vision for young people in the Senior School is to find a balance between study and service. We want each pupil in the Green Blazer to develop their individual talents and skills to their full potential and use their gifts to help others.

The Green Blazer is a symbol that connects Aloysians. Pupils, staff, and parents join together to build a strong educational community. We want our young people to realise that, like being Aloysian, learning is a lifelong journey.

As one of the top Independent schools in Scotland, we encourage personal excellence and a delight in learning at every stage, that is why we have some of the best academic results in the country. We follow the Scottish Qualifications system and are one of only a few schools to offer a free choice of subjects.


This year’s SQA results have been outstanding, providing the College:

- 98% pass rate National 5 (national attainment level 78.2%)

- 74% at A grade – our best ever results

- 96.5% Higher pass rate

- 84% at A or B grades

- 93% Advanced Higher pass rate

- 51% at A grade and 75% at A or B grade

However, we are more than just excellent academic results, and academic achievement is only one part of a wider mission of the Senior School as we continue to develop the ‘whole person’ through our five key aspirations – Personal Excellence, Delight in Learning, Faith and Values, Care & Respect, and Make a Difference. 

We look to form men and women for others in a way that encourages their God-given talents. Our aspiration for our pupils is that they find a balance between study and service. We want each pupil at the College to achieve academic excellence within the wider context of human excellence, developing their individual talents and skills to their full potential and using those skills for the benefit of others.
