The school with Loretto Golf is a unique opportunity to learn effective, competently designed academic programs and at the same time intensive sports activities, in particular golfing. Here, students from all over the world are offered truly extraordinary, exclusive conditions: the campus has its own Golf Academy, which is considered to be the best in the UK, and the fields and infrastructure of the nearest professional golf clubs are actively used, with which productive and long-standing cooperation has been established. Students constantly participate in national championships and rarely come home without first prizes and championship cups. As coaches are both permanent teachers, and invited well-known instructors of "big sport".

At the same time, we should not think that the students focus exclusively on golf - academic preparation of students is not inferior to students of other British boarding schools. Loretto graduates continue their studies at the best universities in the UK and the world (for example, the University of California at Berkeley is popular). Among the most successful areas (according to the statistics of the A-level exams) are business, mathematics and higher mathematics, physics - according to the subjects, students regularly receive the highest A * -A scores (60% of graduates).

The main goal of teachers and educators is the comprehensive and harmonious development of students: pupils are brought up with inquisitiveness of mind, curiosity, aspiration for self-development and learning. Such qualities as sincerity, perseverance and purposefulness, kindness and tolerance, and a real desire to help another are also appreciated. The school has a benevolent, warm atmosphere in which children feel safe and comfortable.

Loretto is famous for the creative successes of his charges: more than 70% of students are engaged in creativity and art - music, theater and dramatic art, dance, singing. On the school stage (the institution has its own concert hall for 300 seats), every year about 50 performances are given:

  • Performances;
  • Musicals;
  • Concerts;
  • Various shows.

Participants of musical groups constantly participate in national events, festivals, competitions and concerts.

Loretto is rightly proud of its international atmosphere: approximately 20% of all students are foreign students (they represent countries in Africa, the US, Russia, Spain, Hong Kong, France and Germany). For them, the special department EAL (English as a foreign language) works: every week there are additional supporting English lessons in mini-groups (3-5 people each).
