Philosophy of Education

Loreto Bray is a Catholic all-girls secondary school under the trusteeship of the Loreto Trust Board. Loreto Bray strives to live out the Loreto philosophy of education by striving to ensure that:


  • Love, freedom, justice, sincerity and joy find expression in all our daily interactions.
  • Young people feel accepted and allowed to experience the exercise of appropriate responsibility.
  • The potential of each individual – spiritual, intellectual and physical – is recognised and respected.
  • Special concern for the disadvantaged and underprivileged is experienced and encouraged.
  • Positive critical reflection is developed.
  • The challenge of suffering is faced.
  • Staff, parents, students, past-pupils co-operate for the common good.

In the power of Christ and with Mary as our model, we try

  • To awaken the hearts and minds of young people
  • To help them value and develop their heritage of faith and culture.
  • To encourage them to use positively the talents with which they have been gifted in the service of others, to the greater glory of God.
