Loretto School, Edinburgh:
Loretto School is a small, friendly co-educational boarding and day school for 3 - 18 years olds in Musselburgh, East Lothian, Scotland. Set in 85 acres of leafy campus just outside Edinburgh, Scotland's capital city, Loretto School provides an all-round education for just over 500 boys and girls - boarders, flexi-boarders and day pupils. Our school is made up of two parts - the Junior School (3-12 years) and the Senior School (aged 12 and over). Pupils can board from age 8, although most boarders join the School from age 10.
Day & Boarding Programmes for Boys & Girls Ages 3-18:
Loretto School's academic aim is to ensure that the minds and intellects of all pupils are stretched and fulfilled, regardless of ability and background. Excellent and varied resources, reflecting both innovative and traditional educational approaches, are supported and enhanced by small classes and firm but friendly relationships between pupils and teachers. We also emphasise the tri-partite foundation of good communications between the school, parents and pupils.
Our priority is to encourage Lorettonians to become independent thinkers, capable of distinguishing truth from fiction, unafraid of intellectual debate and discussion, courteous in their challenge of established views, respectful of the opinions of others and confident of their abilities to meet the challenges of a modern world.
