Loreto College

Chichester Road South Hulme Manchester M15 5PB

“Loreto is a sixth form college which exists primarily to cater for the needs of young Catholics in the 16-18 age range, but which also caters for young people of different faiths whose beliefs are consonant with our key values of Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Truth and Joy. The key values derive from the educational philosophy of Mary Ward, a sixteenth century Englishwoman, who founded the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the order of nuns who started the college in 1851. The key values remain at the core of Loreto College, Manchester and all the many Loreto Schools and Colleges throughout the world.”
