Loreto Sixth Form College is located in Hulme, a mile south of the centre of Manchester and very close to Manchester University and Manchester Metropolitan University, with excellent transport links.
It is a part of an international network of Catholic schools and colleges established by the Loreto Sisters. It works under the Loreto English Trust Board. All the Loreto schools and colleges in England are part of and participate fully in the work of the Loreto English Educational Network.
Although the college has had a presence in inner-city Manchester since 1854, its re-building programme of 2004 delivered the modern, state-of-the-art facilities that have provided the backdrop to its most recent success. The college has up-to-date modern learning facilities in all subject areas, ensuring that students’ learning environments are of the highest quality.
Judged Outstanding in all areas at the last OFSTED Inspection, the college has continued to maintain and improve its performance. Its financial status is Outstanding and it has been awarded the prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Further and Higher Education.
One key area of Loreto’s success is the support provided for students, including three student study centres – with careers, study skills and mentoring support, a library with internet access and multimedia resources, dedicated private interview rooms for students requiring support, advice and counselling, and a chapel – for quiet reflection.
Loreto’s ICT facilities are second to none, offering 21 IT suites, including AppleMac, computerised work stations and study support area and networked IT facilities in all classrooms with internet access. The recent opening of the final phase of the building programme, St Joseph’s, includes maths and science theory rooms. Prior to this, the new build programme has included a shop, a theatre workshop area and additional theatre, new media editing suites, music technology suites and sound recording studios.
The College has approximately 3,600 full time students predominantly in the 16-19 age range, studying GCE A Level and vocational advanced, intermediate and foundation courses.
