How Loreto Grammar became an “inspirational place to be”

Loreto head teacher and girls

When four Ofsted inspectors delivered their verdict on Loreto after a two-day visit last September – its first such report in over a decade – they could not have been more unequivocal in their judgement.

As headteacher Jane Beever put it: “That’s a super opening line.”

Founded by the Sisters of Loreto in 1909, the school was judged to be Outstanding overall, and in each of the five individual categories. “Pupils and students are self-motivated, independent, and show a quiet determination to be the best that they can be,” the report said.
