Our daughter settled in straight away and took advantage of all the many enriching opportunities offered her. Her ideas and concepts of the world and her place in it have been broadened and stretched- thank you Loreto! I don't believe anywhere else could offer such a rich and affirming experience.

As a Loreto school, we are part of an international community of schools founded by Mary Ward everywhere from Australia, Mauritius to India as well as the UK and Ireland. Since 2008, Sixth Formers from Loreto Altrincham have made four trips to our sister school in Kolkata in India to work with the children there and many of them found this to be a truly lifeâchanging experience.
International students also join the Sixth Form on study placements from a number of European countries, and for 2016-17 we have been awarded scholarships from Educatius UK for Loreto students to visit a Scandanavian school on a summer placement.
We regularly welcome our fellow students from the Loreto Australia schools – Toorak, Normanhurst and Kirribilli as part of a cultural and sporting tour, which includes friendly but highly competitive netball matches with our school teams. As a member of the Specialist Schools and Academies Trust, we have also hosted students from the Netherlands during the annual SSAT conference in Manchester, in partnership with the European Platform programme.
Recent international trips have included the Government and Politics trip to Washington DC and New York, the Ski Trip to New Hampshire, the Classics trips to Rome and Athens, and foreign language exchanges to France, Spain and Germany.
