Welcome to Loreto College


Loreto College is part of an international community inspired by the spirit of Mary Ward, the foundress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary. We encourage all of our students to live out the values Mary Ward promoted: Freedom, Sincerity, Truth, Justice and Joy. For further information about our Catholic mission, please click here.

The excellent behaviour of our students, the support of their parents, and the hard work of our staff all help to make Loreto College a very successful school.  On this website you will find a copy of our latest OFSTED report, in which the school is rated as outstanding.  You will also find that the school has been recognised for the excellent academic achievements of its students.  There are also numerous reports on the many extracurricular activities which help to enrich school life.
