St Aloysius College provides a pretty decently well rounded experience. Its reputation is solid, with a well accommodated selection of extracurriculars. Its sport program serves the boys more than the schools position (which is uncommon for private boys schools) and the school provides consistently excellent tuition for academics. Most boys are involved, mannered and competent. Campus is small, but well utilised. Some aspects of management, including staffing and co-ordination of events, could be more well structure.
The school provides good academic support to the students and cultivates a culture of togetherness and support by year 12. It has a decent selection of extracurriculars and has a good reputation.
Outside of this, the school culture is abhorrently negative. There is all the typical stuff you’d expect from an all boys school: sexism, homophobia, insensitivity; you name it. There has been numerous instances where boys at the college have been the perpetrators of sexual assault or even rape, yet the college have served the students with a one week suspension at the most, attempting to cover up the incidents. It is simply not on.
Also, there is a vast disconnect with women in the college. They claim to have a deep, collaborative relationship with the neighbouring Loreto Kirribilli, however the boys and girls barely mingle between each other, leaving a lack of social skills.
Overall, St Aloysius is a poor school culture-wise and I would not send my son there.
