About Loreto College

Loreto College Swords is a Catholic all-girls secondary school.

The school was founded in Rivervalley, Swords, in 1988 after moving from North Great Georges Street where it had been for 150 years.

The school is very proud of its Loreto tradition and its founder Mary Ward.

Loreto College, Swords is a caring, enabling, learning community where staff and students work together with mutual respect.

In the school we aim to create a positive environment, underpinned by Christian values.

We hope that the Loreto core values of truth, freedom, justice, sincerity and joy find daily expression in all aspects of school life.
