About the School

Founded in 1827 and located in an 85 acre campus in East Lothian, Scotland, Loretto is a leading independent UK boarding school and home to Europe’s foremost Golf Academy.

As a boarding and day school catering for just over 600 boys and girls aged 0-18, of great importance is the “value-added” provided by the teaching and learning at Loretto. This indicates the progress pupils make between different stages of education. If pupils perform beyond expectations this is reflected in a high “value-added” score.

In a recent study, Loretto was placed in the top 7% of schools nationally for its recent A level results. Music and drama play strong parts in the life at Loretto and there are numerous and varied opportunities to perform.
