About Us

Every parent, in choosing a school, is looking for a place where their child can belong. At Salvatorian College, we will nurture your son’s abilities, celebrate his achievements, and care for him as part of the Salvatorian College family.

Our ethos as a Catholic school is underpinned by Gospel and universal values:

We believe that every child should be valued for who they are, and for who they can become. Boys at Salvatorian College know they are valued and respected and, in turn, they are confident in themselves and respectful to others – as a result our school is a calm, safe, and happy place to be.

We believe that every child should have the opportunity to reach their full potential. Boys at Salvatorian College are challenged and stretched by their teachers – as a result, boys at Salvatorian College achieve some of the best academic results in the country, regardless of their starting points.

We believe that, to navigate the modern world, children need to develop positive values and attitudes, in addition to academic learning. Boys at Salvatorian College are taught to think critically about moral, philosophical, and spiritual issues; they are taught to respect human dignity and serve others; and are taught to be honest and forgiving – as a result, boys leave Salvatorian College as well-rounded young men, ready to become leaders of good influence in the world.

Our pupils are the greatest advocates of the unique education provided at this exceptional school, and will be very happy to welcome you for a tour.

Mr Alan Bryant, Head of School

HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL

Salvatorian College was founded in 1926 by Brothers of the Society of the Divine Saviour (the Salvatorians).

The Salvatorians had come to Harrow in 1901 and established a small parish dedicated to Saint Joseph the Worker. It was not until 1926 that the community was big enough to warrant the opening a school. A grammar school opened in September 1926 with thirteen boys and Fr Cuthbert Smith SDS as the first Headmaster. Shortly after, a prep department for boys aged 8–11 was opened as the number of boys grew. Under the tripartite system it attained ‘Voluntary Aided’ grammar school status in 1961. The prep department was closed that same year.

With the abolition of the tripartite system and Harrow Local Education Authority adopting the three-tier system, in 1979, the sixth form was closed and consolidated into the coeducational St Dominic’s Sixth Form College, formerly a convent grammar school for girls run by the Dominican Sisters, while the College became a comprehensive school for boys aged 12 to 16. The entry age later became 11 when Harrow Council reverted to the two-tier system in line with other London boroughs.

The first lay Headmaster was appointed in 1981 and nowadays all teachers are lay staff. The school remains under the trusteeship of the Salvatorian Order, whose Provincial Office is located next to the school.

Salvatorian College became an Academy in 2012, gaining independence from the Local Authority. In September 2017, Salvatorian College entered into a partnership with the Cardinal Hume Academies Trust, a high performing consortium of Catholic Schools under the executive leadership of the highly regarded educator, Martin Tissot.

The school was successful in bidding for funding under the Government’s ‘Priority Schools Building Programme’ and staff and pupils moved into the new £25m facility in September 2019.

Despite the begining of this new chapter in the school’s history, it remains dedicated to furthering the mission of Father Francis Jordan, the founder of the Salvatorian Order: “to bring all people to a knowledge and love of God and of Jesus Christ whom he sent” (John 17:3). Central to Francis Jordan’s philosophy was the power of education to transform lives and to empower people to achieve their ambitions. He regarded it essential, that people develop their skills and talents, to enable them to make a difference to their local communities.

Our policies are regularly reviewed with parents, pupils, staff and Governors to ensure they align with our values and meet statutory regulation and good practice.

STATEMENT ON RACISM

Salvatorian College condemns racism in all its forms. We nurture our pupils so that they become effective leaders of good influence, using their education and voice to create a better world for all people.

As a Catholic school, we go out of our way to welcome everyone to our community as equals, helping others whenever we can. All forms of intolerance and discrimination are opposed to our values so we must continue to work hard to understand how our society is affected by institutional racism and racial privilege, challenging it whenever it surfaces.

Jesus said: ‘Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be satisfied.’
