Start Your Story

"Each journey is unique to the individual child and family..."

Every child you see in a Green Blazer today has been through his or her own admissions journey. We accept applications at any time, whether you are looking for your child to join us at the beginning of the school year in August or mid-term. Each journey is unique to the individual child and family, however, here is a timeline to help you understand the general route from interest to admission.

November

Prospective parents and pupils are invited to attend our Open Evening.

Don't worry if you can't make Open Evening, as personalised tours are available at any time throughout the year.

December

As part of the regular admissions cycle, applications have a deadline of 19th December. These should be returned with all of the necessary supporting documents, including the Bursary form where applicable.

Please note that all Bursary applications must include the combination above plus a completed Bursary form.

Green Blazer Story

Applicants from Primary 4 to Senior 6 must include the ‘Green Blazer Story’ - a short essay about themselves and what they hope to achieve in the Green Blazer - their hobbies and interests, favourite subjects and ambitions. This should be handwritten and as a guide should be no more than 500 words.

Additional Support

Please note, if your child has any additional support needs or supporting documentation, please include it with your application - it is very important to us that we meet the needs of every child.

Practice Papers

Practice Papers for Primary 7 to Senior 2 will be sent out with an acknowledgement of your application.

Please note that assessment dates are subject to change year on year.

Around this time we will also arrange for you and your child to meet with one of the senior management team, if you have not done so already, so that we can get to know you better.

Late February

Offer letters, along with parental contracts, are sent out in late February. If you choose to accept an offer of a place at the College, please send back your signed parental contract along with the deposit sum by the date specified on your offer letter.

June

Your child will attend an Orientation Day at the College so that they know what to expect when they start at their new school. All new parents are invited to attend a New Parents Meeting, designed to welcome our new families into the Aloysian community.

Mid August

The first day of term arrives as your child marks the true beginning of his or her own Green Blazer story.
