Principal’s & Deputy Principals’ Welcome 


Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to our website. I hope you enjoy viewing a snapshot of all that Loreto, Bray has to offer.

Loreto Bray strives for academic excellence. We have a dedicated and dynamic group of teachers who support our students as they embark on their post primary education journey. The strong, supportive relationships that thrive between our students and teachers is perhaps the most compelling feature that makes Loreto Bray unique. Our dedicated teachers are professional and generous with their time and skills.

Mary Ward, our foundress, had an inspiring  vision that ”women in time to come will do much”. In Loreto Bray we aim to ensure that all students ‘will do much’. We support our students in reaching their potential and in ensuring that each and every one can take their rightful place in society. Mary Ward believed in the ability and capacity of women  a vision that is shared today by all our teachers who endeavour to ensure that Mary Ward’s rich legacy inspires all involved in our school to be “seekers of truth and doers of justice”

Loreto Bray offers a contemporary education based on a strong Loreto tradition. Our students are exposed to many opportunities and experiences that allow them to flourish and grow in an environment that supports their development into strong, disciplined, self confident and happy young people.

Our school is proud of its extensive extra curricular program that ranges from hockey to athletics, equestrian to basketball. Take a look at our weekly newsletter on our website to keep up to date with all that Loreto Bray has to offer.

Thank you for visiting our website, we hope you get a flavour of what being a student in Loreto Bray is like.

Deputy Principal’s Welcome

Welcome to our updated website. We hope you enjoy perusing our pages and get a sense of the vibrant, enthusiastic and productive school which our teachers and students experience on a daily basis here in Loreto, Bray.

We are in the privileged position of having two deputy Principals, Ms. Dee Ryan and Ms Frances Ward. Together we promote the values that underpin the education your daughter will enjoy during her six years as a Loreto, Bray student. Those values; Justice, Freedom, Joy, Sincerity and Truth espoused by our founder Mary Ward are rooted in the Gospel. They underpin all that we do here in Loreto, Bray. We aim to give all our students a sense of belonging to a wider Loreto community and a sense of connectedness that will enable all our students to give of themselves for the service of others.

While we excel in academic excellence which is borne out in our outstanding Junior and Leaving Certificate results year after year we also place huge value on a holistic rounded education that ensures all of our students reach their potential.

We are fortunate to offer excellent co curricular and extracurricular programs to our students. We have an all weather astro turf pitch and a stand alone sports hall that allow an array of extracurricular sporting activities to take place. We have a very proud tradition in basketball, equestrian and hockey where many of our students excel.

As Deputy Principals our aim is to encourage all our students to excel and to reach their full potential in an environment that promotes cutting edge teaching and learning strategies combined with academic excellence.

Thank you for visiting our evolving website. We appreciate all feedback on our website and please don’t hesitate to contact us with suggestions;

Thank you.

Ms Ryan and Ms Ward
