The curriculum at Loreto High School is centred on our Catholic belief that each child is a unique individual in the eyes of God and is infused with the Loreto values of Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Truth, Joy, Internationality and Excellence. We aim to fit the curriculum to the child, not the child to the curriculum.
From the very start, our curriculum is designed to challenge students to achieve the very highest standards in academic subjects, physical education and the arts. We begin by getting to know our students before they even join us through our programme of workshops with the primary schools. This intensifies over the final term of Year 6 when a team of Year 7 teachers visit the primaries to meet the Year 6 teachers to discuss individual children, their talents and their targets for development.
When children join us in Year 7, they are taught in the Year 7 wing in the purpose-built learning bases where most of their lessons take place. Each class has a dedicated Year 7 teacher, a highly experienced Primary or Secondary teacher who spends most of their time with the class and gets to know the children very well. They team-teach a high proportion of the lessons with a subject specialist, producing dynamic lessons with a high level of challenge and support in which our students thrive, making good and outstanding progress.
