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.

We were delighted with the success of our A-level students in the summer of 2015.  These students are now attending a variety of leading universities around the country, studying a wide range of courses which include Dentistry, Law and Genetics.  For a full list of our leavers destinations, please click here.  We were also able to congratulate our GCSE students on fantastic results.  The majority have now commenced A-level courses here at Loreto, and we look forward to celebrating further success with them in due course.
