OUR ACADEMIC HIGHLIGHTS

In 2020

Through the COVID-19 pandemic and successive lockdowns, 2020 was a challenging year for everyone.

But our students overcame the challenge to achieve deserved success.

Before the disruption Xaverian students were on track to achieve some of our best ever results.


Despite COVID-19, many of our students continued to excel and progressed to Russell Group Universities including specialist programmes in Medicine and Science.

Both A Level and Vocational students have secured excellent progression.

It’s thanks our strengths of resilience and dedication, that together as a team we’ve been able to achieve what our students deserve.

RESULTS FOR LIFE

Success to Xaverian means the person is nourished and empowered to be more independent in every aspect of their life.

This not only stands them in great stead to be successful in their next steps towards a rewarding and exciting career but the life lessons we teach, and our Xaverian values, provide the student with confidence. They will be respected members of their community and family for the decades to come.

The real result of Xaverian study and enrichment is the whole human performance, attitude and devotion to service and duty in pursuit of social justice.

It’s an honour to play a part in the development of Xaverian alumni as we all strive to be our best for ourselves and therefore for everyone else in our lives.
