Loreto Normanhurst is a leading Sydney, catholic, independent day and boarding school for girls from Years 5-12, with boarding from Years 7-12. The school is part of a 400-year tradition of educating girls and is connected to a worldwide network of Loreto schools, including seven in Australia. Our Foundress, Mary Ward (1585-1645) believed that, “Women in time to come will do much….” In our school, we live out Mary Ward’s vision through the Loreto values of Freedom, Justice, Sincerity, Verity and Felicity.
Located on Sydney’s leafy Upper North Shore, the school is set in spacious grounds of over 25 acres, on the edge of bushland, with beautiful ovals and a large sporting and aquatic complex. An oasis set back from bustling Pennant Hills Road, the school is very accessible and is well serviced by public transport, both train and bus. The school offers private bus services to the Mosman and Lower North Shore areas; Lane Cove, Drummoyne, Hunters Hill, Gladesville and Ryde areas; the Rouse Hill, Dural, Glenhaven and Hills District areas; and the Avalon and Northern Beaches areas.
Loreto Normanhurst provides an education within the Catholic, and specifically Loreto tradition. Mary Ward’s values, as well as a deep respect for the contribution of women, underpin the mission of our school and every aspect of school life. Loreto Normanhurst is a place where the Catholic Christian faith is fostered and developed. It is a school where all people are invited to grow in their knowledge and love of God and to embrace the gospel. Parents wishing for a place at the school for their daughter are expected to have an understanding of, and a commitment to, all that a Loreto Education represents.
Loreto Normanhurst is not registered to deliver courses to overseas students. In selecting students for enrolment at the school, primary consideration will be given to families who have congruence with Catholic values and the ethos of the school.

The educational vision of Loreto schools springs from the Gospel of Jesus Christ…This is our vision: that Loreto schools offer a Catholic education which liberates, empowers and motivates students to use their individual gifts with confidence, creativity and generosity in loving and responsible service.
