Extra-curricular and Leadership

Our daughter  has benefited from the extra-curricular activities..overall I think she has received an excellent all-round education and is in a far stronger position to make the transition to university and onwards into her future life from having attended Loreto.

The Sixth Formers here genuinely are school leaders and role models who have a say in the running of the school.

Senior Prefect Committee

The Head Girl and Deputy Head Girls are elected by Sixth Form students and teaching staff after submitting written applications and taking part in an interview process.

We have a system of prefects in Year 12 who are assigned to offer assistance and support to form classes in the main school and many Sixth Formers are trained Peer Mentors or SEND mentors. Form Prefects have one session with their form every week in which they run activities ranging from revision and study techniques, to dealing with friendship issues.

Subject Reps

All subject departments recruit Subject Representatives, who work as ambassadors for their A Level subjects, running clubs for Key Stage 3 students, setting up academic mentoring and study groups, and giving advice and guidance to Year 10 and 11 students choosing their A Level options.

School Magazine

Our annual school magazine, Loreto Life, is planned, edited and produced by a team of Year 12 volunteers. They work with students throughout the school to make sure that all year groups are represented and that, in just 40 pages, the life of an academic year at Loreto is reflected in high-quality journalism.

Chaplaincy, Amnesty and Social Justice

Our Catholic ethos underpins everything we do, and the spirit of Mary Ward to ‘be seekers of Truth and doers of Justice’. In recent years, students have led a number of social justice campaigns through our Chaplaincy Group, our IMPACT Group and the Loreto Amnesty Group. These include working towards Fairtrade status, raising awareness about Human Trafficking, and supporting the rights of political prisoners around the world.


Students who are interested in a medical career have the opportunity to meet regularly through the sixth-form led MedSoc. The society helps future medics learn more about profession through presentations form guest speakers, sharing ideas and reflections on their own work experiences, and discussion sessions on current healthcare, clinical and ethical questions.

Loreto Grammar School achieves Eco-Schools Green Flag with Distinction

Loreto Whale, displayed on our fence next to the tennis courts, made from plastic bottle tops to symbolise the dangers of plastic pollution to marine life. An enormous thank you to our students and staff who have worked very hard to promote eco awareness in our school and undertaken so many eco initiatives allowing us to fly the Eco flag. The Eco Schools board reviewed our application and were pleased to highlight the following:- "Achieving our accreditation demonstrates that you have gone above and beyond to improve your local community and protect our planet, if everyone shared the same passion, determination and dedication we're sure the climate crisis would soon be thing of the past. It is very impressive that you have formed such a large Eco-Committee with fantastic adult member support. It shows that young people in your school are aware of environmental issues and are committed to being active and creating positive change. This knowledge and attitude has provided your school with excellent foundations for the many successes achieved through a whole school approach and the fact that the work of your Eco-Committee is valued and respected amongst staff and pupils alike! We loved reading the quotes provided by members of the Eco-Committee which demonstrate that they are impressive individuals who are passionate about improving their local community and protecting our planet. Your Curriculum Link examples are imaginative, practical and fun, making environmental education accessible and engaging, well done! This is a great way to add context to your Eco-Schools work, it means young people at your school are given the opportunity to learn about important environmental issues and then the chance to work on these issues – a great dual approach. This is a great way to add context to your Eco-Schools work, it means young people at your school are given the opportunity to learn about important environmental issues and then the chance to work on these issues – a great dual approach. It was also wonderful to read you had supplemented your environmental learning with a field trip to the Waste Recycling Plant in Sharston to learn about Waste Management– the day sounded brilliant! We absolutely loved seeing the evidence you provided of your completed sessions and planning, all involved should be incredibly proud of their achievements. You have placed a lot of emphasis on informing as many members of your school community as possible in your Eco- Schools work and this is a strength of your application. You have made significant efforts to involve all pupils and your wider school community, maximising the impacts of your Eco-Schools work and benefitting your local area and our planet. Your greatest successes link clearly to the experience of your pupils. It is great that you were able to greatly improve school-wide efforts with recycling. This is what the best forms of climate action are about – impactful but achievable things that create a positive experience and prompt more action. We love this! Managing and resourcing changes is a common and big challenge to face, especially when actively trying to involve your local community! Your actions have faced this challenge and made brilliant choices to adapt to them. SMART choices and a committed Eco- Committee have overcome any obstacles and you should be proud of your achievements this year. We love your collaborative approach to creating an Eco-Code pledge, this approach has allowed your Eco-Committee to take ownership and create a final code that will be treasured by everyone at your school. Your Eco-Code is a fantastic call to action for all who read it. It’s a great reflection of the ethos your Eco-Committee have created. Overall, this is a terrific application. Everyone at Loreto Grammar School should be proud of the Green Team and the amazing and inspiring work that they’ve delivered this year. You’re more than worthy of your Eco-Schools Green Flag with Distinction. Congratulations!" This award demonstrates our continuing Eco journey as we strive to live out Pope Francis’ message of “Laudate Si” (praise be to you), the Loreto Sisters seven year action plan (2021-2028) on “Care for our Common Home” and our own school response to climate change. We look forward to 2023-24 with hope and commitment.Read More
