Senior School

In the Senior School, our girls are recognised as being articulate and confident young women who actively seek out challenging learning experiences.

              Senior School

Our students consistently achieve strong academic results in an environment that balances academic rigour with a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities including camps and retreats, competitions, international trips, music, performing arts, and sport.

With a focus on student voice and independence, we recognise the need to equip our girls with skills for their post-school life. We concentrate on building leadership and confidence, a strong work ethic and the ability to take risks in safe environments.

Importantly, our Social Justice program involves students in a range of activities to benefit the lives of others. The girls are very active in social justice activities at the College including Pink Day, Mission Day as well as fundraising and volunteering efforts for our Vietnam, Cambodia and India pilgrimages and for Mary Ward International.

Students are supported in their learning through enrichment and extension pathways to ensure all students reach their full potential. Loreto College offers an extensive subject choice within the school and access to external courses at associated training institutions. This flexibility enables students to craft their final years of school with the support of guidance advisors.

Subject offered include:

  • English 
  • Health & Physical Education
  • Humanities & Social Sciences
  • Languages (Chinese, French and Italian)
  • Mathematics
  • Religious Education
  • Science
  • Technologies (Food Technology, Textiles, ICT and more)
  • The Arts (Art, Music, Drama)

In Years 11 and 12 the curriculum is delivered through the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE).

Our Year 12 students consistently accomplish exceptional results including a high number of girls who achieve SACE Merits (perfect 20s) across a broad range of subjects. Likewise, in the Australian

Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR), Year 12 students achieve exceptional results with approximately fifty percent of girls performing in the top ten percent of the State.
