Welcome to Loreto

Loreto Kirribilli is an independent Catholic school for girls from Kindergarten through Year 12 with an enrolment of just over one thousand students. We foster in our students the desire to be seekers of truth and doers of justice. 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.
