A WARM WELCOME

FROM TONY KNOWLES,
PRINCIPAL OF XAVERIAN COLLEGE

Xaverian has been serving the people of Greater Manchester for nearly 160 years, and we remain an outstanding Catholic college for the community.

 

Students and staff from all backgrounds are welcome to join our community of learning, faith and service. During my time at the College I have seen time and again the fantastic endeavours of our students, and how the College can transform the lives of young people in our care, as we guide and support them to develop their talents and reach their full potential, both here at Xaverian and when they progress from us.

Like many of our staff I have a long affiliation with the College, mainly due to the unique character and environment here at Xaverian, which I continue to enjoy now, as Principal. In my case this has spanned 48 years as a student, teacher and now as Principal.

Each year, our students tell us how much they enjoy studying with us, and I am sure you will find the College just as welcoming, challenging, supportive and distinctive as previous generations. I look forward to meeting you on Open Days and Taster Days, where you can get a sense of what Xaverian offers for yourself. Good luck with your continued studies.

Tony Knowles,
Principal
