Welcome to the upgraded Lasallian Network website, designed to serve the needs of the Network of GB and Malta.
Here you will find information on the past, present, and future of our District — its Lasallian identity and heritage, its vision and purpose, and its people, programs, and ministries.
You also will find District events as well as links to all schools and centres in the Network.
Visit these pages to discover our story, and learn how we work together as members of the worldwide Lasallian family in our three centuries-plus mission of serving the young and the poor through Catholic education in the Lasallian tradition.
Live Jesus in our hearts forever!
The first De La Salle Foundation in England was opened in 1855, just five years after the restoration of the Catholic hierarchy in Britain.
In the course of the twentieth century, and especially after the dual system settlement of the 1944 education act, the Brothers worked in educational establishments of all sorts: primary, secondary and tertiary (teacher training), voluntary aided schools, private, direct grant and home office schools.
Their presence stretched from Ipswich to Jersey and from the Isle of Wight to Stirling. The peak of activity was reached in the early 1960's, when there were more than 380 Brothers operating in 41 establishments, including two provincialates, two novitiates and two junior novitiates.
