Each student has been contacted individually and been reassured that their offer of a place at Loreto is still available to them and secure. We have now contacted all students holding an offer of a place at Loreto College, inviting them to the courses page of the College website where they will find ‘Year 11 preparation for Study at Loreto College’.

Each subject sheet has a range of activities, tasks, research and wider reading that will best prepare them to become Loreto students. A link to the page: This preparatory work is really useful to do as it will help each individual explore their options for College study. All courses will be finalised at enrolment after students have been awarded their GCSE results. We will be in contact with the students again as a new students of the college.
