Welcome to Loreto Kirribilli
Loreto Kirribilli is an Independent Catholic day school with an enrolment of approximately 1080 girls from Kindergarten to Year 12. The school is one of many around the world directed by the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM), also known as the Loreto Sisters.

At Loreto Kirribilli we are proud to build on our four hundred year international heritage. We believe it is our privilege to continue the work of Mary Ward, who founded the IBVM in 1609. Mother Gonzaga Barry was the first leader of the Loreto Sisters in Australia, establishing a convent at Ballarat, Victoria in 1875 then Sydney in 1892.
