Principal’s Welcome

On behalf of the school community, I would like to welcome you to Loreto College Junior School. We hope that our website will give you a flavour of our happy, vibrant learning community where girls from Junior Infants to 6th Class have an opportunity to grow and develop in the first stage of their educational journey.

Set in the heart of Dublin City, on the eastern side of St. Stephen’s Green, Loreto College Junior School is an all-girls, fee-charging Catholic school with a strong Christian ethos. It operates under the trusteeship of The Loreto Education Trust Board which delegates the administration of the school to the Board of Management.

The Loreto philosophy of education is holistic in nature and one of inclusiveness, based on the principles of Truth, Justice, Freedom, Sincerity and Joy. In partnership with parents, we strive to develop well-educated, confident, balanced young people who are outward-looking and able to meet the challenges of life with common sense, integrity and resilience.

At Loreto College Junior School we follow the National Curriculum set by the Department of Education. We have a commitment to high quality teaching and learning and we work to foster a love of learning and a desire for knowledge amongst our students.

We share the school campus with our senior school, where our girls can continue their educational journey to Leaving Certificate level.

Our school is a friendly, welcoming place where staff, children and parents experience a sense of warmth and belonging. It has a charming intimacy, which makes it very special.
