Should you wish to re-apply for our In Year Entrance Examination during the academic year 2021 - 2022, please can I ask you to email

Please note that dates of the examinations are subject to change.


Loreto is currently full in all year groups. Priority is given to Catholic girls if a place does become available and your daughter is on our current waiting list.

If your daughter is currently in Year 7 and applied for Year 7 entry in 2021 but was unsuccessful, she can only apply for the In Year Entrance Examination taking place in April 2022, ie, the year that she will be in her summer term in Year 7 at her current secondary school.

We are unable to accept applications for girls who are currently in Year 10 and Year 11.

Loreto is a selective Catholic Grammar School and as such an Entrance Examination needs to be taken. 

I would inform you that whilst I am happy for your daughter to sit the In Year Entrance Examination, the School is fully over-subscribed in all year groups, and you should be aware that even if successful, I will be unable to offer her a place at Loreto Grammar School and her name will be placed on our Waiting List. 

With kind regards, Mrs Beever MA  Headteacher
