Opportunities & Enrichment
Mary Ward, the founder of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and the inspiration behind the various Loreto schools and colleges located in all parts of the world, was an advocate of education for all, in the broadest sense of the word; we try to embody the spirit of this message in the daily life of our College, here in Manchester.
Academic excellence is the goal towards which we all strive but it would be true to say that the most successful Loreto students are those who take
full advantage of the numerous extracurricular activities on offer at
The Music Programme at Loreto College caters for musicians of all abilities and interests, and all our groups are open to students studying any subject. We work towards high profile performances at some of Manchester’s most prestigious venues.
If you choose to take A level Music, you will take a course focused on practical engagement of set works and you’ll be supported with 1-2-1 tuition in composition and on your chosen instrument/voice.
The College has an impressive range of sports facilities: sports pitches, sports hall, dance studio and a fitness suite with state of the art equipment, including VO2 max testing equipment. The College also makes regular use of local leisure centres, the Amaechi Basketball Centre and international standard facilities around the city, such as Manchester Velodrome, National Squash and Tennis Centre and the Aquatics Centre. Team training sessions take place throughout the week so anyone can get involved.
