Headmaster’s Welcome

Since 1901, when the College was founded by the Salesians of Don Bosco, Salesian College has maintained and developed a reputation as a school whose students achieve at the highest level, whilst remaining grounded in a firm foundation of Christian love.

As an independent Catholic grammar school for boys aged from 11 to 18 years with a Co-educational Sixth Form, our aim is to send a young person out into the world who is confident, comfortable with themselves and all those around them, a good Christian, an honest citizen, a decent person and well-equipped to take their place in and to make a significant contribution to society. Students from other denominations and faiths are welcomed and play a full part in the life of the College.

We are proud to be acclaimed for our outstanding levels of academic, cultural, spiritual and physical achievement, exemplary student behaviour and a caring ethos.

You are warmly invited to visit the College by appointment. Be assured that you will be made most welcome.

We look forward to meeting you.

Mr Gerard Owens, Headmaster
