Headteacher's Welcome

I am delighted to have been appointed Executive Headteacher at Salvatorian College and to be leading the new partnership between the Cardinal Hume Academies Trust and the Salvatorian College Academy Trust.  The school has a long tradition of providing an excellent education for boys. These are exciting times, as the main campus on the High Road is being completely rebuilt and extended to provide facilities of quality, fit for the twenty-first century.

The Salvatorian Trust has recently entered into a partnership arrangement with the Cardinal Hume Academies Trust and its high-achieving schools. As the new Executive Headteacher, the Governors and I are determined to ensure that all students have the opportunities they need to achieve and excel within a disciplined learning environment. 

We believe the care and guidance offered at Salvatorian College by our outstanding teachers, engenders an ethos that will allow your child to develop their talents and bring them fulfilment and happiness. We stretch out most able and support those with special additional needs. We believe passionately in the importance of recognising every pupil as a unique individual, with their own gifts and talents, who can make a contribution and positive difference to our thriving school community.

Salvatorian College has a clear code of conduct and pupils are well-mannered, respectful and polite. Impressive progress is made by students at all Key Stages. We offer a clear progression pathway at the end of KS4 to our sister college, St Dominic's in Harrow, and to other leading providers.

The distinctive nature of our school is based on strong foundations, the established traditions of the Catholic Church and the Salvatorian Mission to proclaim the loving kindness of the Saviour. We encourage our boys, through the witness of their lives, to respect human dignity and to be ready to serve others. We are proud that the most recent Diocesan inspection in 2014 said, 'Prayer and worship are central to the daily life of the college community' and 'Students very actively engage with the common good'.

We have a strong pastoral system as well as a full programme of enrichment activities. We offer a wide range of extra-curricular provision including music, sport, drama, debating clubs and travel experiences. Our new facilities include: state of the art science laboratories, a drama studio, a four-court sports hall and fitness centre, music technology and well-resourced Information Technology suites for student use. We are adapting to the changing demands of education to ensure our students are prepared for more rigorous examinations by building a culture of study. We are incorporating new practices such as e-learning in every classroom.

You are cordially invited to visit the school by appointment, to see for yourself our unique brand of education.

Martin Tissot, MA, MBA, NPQH
