The College is located on Harrow on the Hill offering beautiful grounds and first rate facilities. We have five separate buildings, including a designated sports centre, music suite and a newly renovated library and learning resource centre. The site and the expertise of staff lend themselves to a wide extra-curricular and sports programme which is well received by the students. There are numerous opportunities for enrichment and a range of trips that are offered annually. The students at St Dominic’s are academic and a joy to work with as a consequence of their bright, positive and motivated outlook. Their engagement with the learning process allows teachers and trainees to share the love of their subject free from interruption.
At the heart of the College’s work is our Catholic ethos, stressing the importance of the development of the whole person. We take very seriously our commitment to the common good, providing every opportunity for individuals to develop spiritually, morally, socially, culturally and academically and thereby make a valuable contribution to society. The Religious Education and pastoral support programmes underpin the academic life of the College and play a pivotal role in ensuring the students’ success.
