A very Special Week took place in the college from 18 to 22 October inclusive as we celebrated ‘Friendship Week’

Many activities took place over the course of the week – we had a DJ every morning before first class with upbeat songs and shout outs, a Friendship Tree on the concourse with posters and displays, a Quiz for all the students to take part in, hot chocolate served by the students themselves to their fellow students, Drama, Big Sister/Little Sister Friendship bracelets and a Staff V’s student Dodgeball match – which we have to say was won by the students!  All in all a most enjoyable week and we hope new friendships have been forged this week.  Thanks to the many staff and students who put so much work into the events.  Click here for photos

 Leaving Cert 2021 Results Day!

Students in Loreto College Swords celebrated outstanding Leaving Certificate results this week after an exam year like no other.

We were delighted to welcome back our students and to congratulate them on their success – click here for photos

This year students were given the option of sitting the exams or receiving the accredited grade. The majority of Loreto College students chose to do both, and on results day, received the better of the two results. Almost 30% of students received over 500 points, while 20% achieved over 550 points. Seven students achieved over 600 points. In fact two wonderful young ladies achieved the maximum number of 625 points, Sarah Barron and Aoife Whelan. Well done !
