We know Loreto students have worked extremely hard, gained impressive results and most will now progress to the Russell Group and other very high achieving universities to start the next stage of their educational journey. Congratulations and best wishes to all our students.
Principal Ann Clynch, CBE said: “Our results are a great testimony to the hard work of students and the inspirational teaching Loreto provides. Every college principal was awaiting the summer results this year with, if possible, even more anxiety than usual given the major changes that the examination boards have introduced. Loreto students and staff have responded to these changes as they always do: with hard work, commitment and passion. Despite the challenges and increased pressures, our results continue to improve. We are delighted for our students, and wish the graduates of 2016 the very best in their next steps in Higher Education, training or employment”
