Loreto College is a leading Catholic independent day and boarding school for girls from Early Learning to Year 12.


Spanning more than 400 years, the Loreto education tradition was first inspired by the foundress of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM), Mary Ward, and established in the Australian Context by Gonzaga Barry IBVM in the late 19th Century.


Mary Ward was an inspirational leader, believing passionately that “women, in time to come, will do much” and that a strong education focused on girls and women would create “seekers of truth and doers of justice” to take action to improve the world for others. Loreto schools encapsulates the beliefs and spirit of Mary Ward in delivering an education which inspires strong, passionate and confident girls and young women. It is these characteristics that you can see most clearly in our girls and is what differentiates us from other schools.
