OUR MISSION STATEMENT: I am the Way, the Truth and the Life (John 14:6) 

At Loreto Grammar School Altrincham, students, staff, parents and Governors form a Catholic community.  We aspire to create a caring, structured environment in which teaching and learning and the experience of school are characterised by joyful and loving service to others, challenge each of us to realise our full potential in a spirit of joy and creativity, encourage the pursuit of excellence, uphold honesty, justice and mutual respect, enable us to be questioning, independent learners and “seekers of truth”, prepare each of us to meet with confidence the challenges of a changing world, improve and enrich the life of the wider community and enable us to be an example of Christian values in the world as witnesses to God’s Living Kingdom 

Our values are centred in God, rooted in gospel values and derive from the vision of Mary Ward. Love and speak the truth - at all times.
