Mission Statement

As a Catholic school in the Loreto tradition, we aim to create a warm and caring community. In an atmosphere of respect and fairness, through support and friendship, we affirm each person’s self-worth and dignity. We aim to provide a student-centred education that nurtures the talents and potential of all. In co-operation with parents and guardians, we work towards the spiritual, moral, social and academic development of each student. Our wish is that our students will grow into happy, confident and responsible adults.

Women in time to come will do much

Mary Ward – Founder of the Loreto Order, 1609


Loreto Secondary School operates an open and inclusive admissions policy. Very important information for parents who would like to apply for a school place on behalf of their daughter can be found here.


Our programme of extra-curricular activities contributes in no small way to the personal development of our students. We also foster that famous Loreto spirit and sense of community while maintaining strong relationships among all members of the school community.


Loreto has a long tradition of promoting high levels of participation in sport. We continue to achieve at the highest level in school competitions while maintaining an inclusive ethos.
