Who Will Follow In Your Footsteps?

If a Jesuit education at St Aloysius’ College was an important factor in your life - or your child’s – then once you have made provision for family and friends, please remember St Aloysius' College in your Will by signing up to The Footsteps Fund today

Faith and Values living on through your gift

Your unique Jesuit education made you who you are today.  Reflecting on your life, it is likely that lifelong friendships, faith and values were forged during your formative years at the College.  If your life opportunities were enhanced by your Jesuit education, then including the College in your Will is a wonderful way to show your support and open opportunities for the next generation of Scientists, Medics, Engineers, Educators, Entrepreneurs and Leaders; young people who will form ideas, innovate and add their greatest contribution to our world.

Established by our Jesuit founders in 1859, today the College operates independently, without an endowment cushion necessary to achieve all our ambitions. A number of Old Aloysians and one former parent have remembered the College in their Wills over the years, and gifts have come in all sizes; from a few hundred pounds, to the many thousands of pounds. 

Students are currently benefitting from Bursary funds, due to the generosity of spirit of those who went before them, but the true worth goes far beyond monetary value. In joining The Footsteps Fund, we believe it is vital to honour your wishes, so you can specify how you wish your gift to be disbursed – whether in support of Bursaries, improvement of the College’s historic buildings – or where the need is greatest. 

Your Legacy will pave the way for future pupils at the College and we will celebrate a spirit of giving to those who have left gifts at All Souls Mass each year and your name will be entered into the St Aloysius’ College Book of Remembrance, specially noted as “Legator”.

Joining The Footsteps Fund

For many people, they are 'asset rich' but 'cash poor'.  By pledging a gift in your Will today, you will become a “Footsteps” member, invited to special College events.
To find out how your legacy could make a difference, our Director of Development & Alumni Relations would be pleased to provide further information.

Expanding our Bursary provision has never been more vital than it is now.  Our Jesuit ethos of supporting those in greatest need – young people who would thrive at the College given the chance – is at the heart of our charitable mission to provide opportunities for talented pupils from families of modest means. 


Since the abolition of the Assisted Places Scheme in 1997, the College has made provision each year for Bursaries from our earned income.  As a way of doing more, The Opportunity Fund was established for our Aloysian Community and Friends to support the next generation of young people who will form ideas, innovate and add their greatest contribution to our world. 


Some of our Bursary Scholars have shared their stories  about how their lives have been transformed, and how they, too, have become “men and women for others”.                              

Stephanie's Story



Stephanie McGill (2012)

Crime Scene Investigator

My Primary School Headmistress opened the door to St Aloysius’ College for me. Her sons attended the college and she suggested to my mum that St Aloysius’ would be the right environment for me, and she definitely wasn't wrong.

“From the moment I entered my first-ever science class, I knew this was what I wanted to do. Broad minded, but I have managed to narrow it down considerably since then.

“In my experience, the school is different to any other; where academia and sportsmanship are praised alongside each other. Where being great at one thing doesn’t define you, but you are allowed to explore your talents and personal drivers.

“By embodying charity at its heart, it teaches pupils how to deal with life’s hardships with compassion, and blessings with gratitude.

“The dedication and support that the teachers provide allow the school to be a nurturing learning environment, even when it is high pressure. It is this balance that allows a community ethos to grow. And it is this support that made me love St Aloysius’ so much.

“I can’t say how my life would have turned out if I hadn't been lucky enough to receive a bursary, but I am certainly glad that I did.”
