About Loreto

The Challenges She Needs



Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak is an independent Catholic school that nurtures the faith and education of girls from Preparatory to Year 12. Additionally, we offer a co-educational early learning Centre at  St Peter’s Early Learning Centre, Toorak. 

For over 400 years, Loreto Schools have been educating young women all over the world. Loreto Toorak continues this tradition. We believe in providing our girls with the challenges they need to excel in life as it is through life’s challenges that we grow and discover our true selves. We provide these challenges in a nurturing environment that encourages our girls to become the best they can be. 

As a school, we embrace the Loreto values of freedom, justice, sincerity, verity and felicity. These foster a deeper understanding of ourselves and each other, and encourage compassion for the wider community. Our Founder Mary Ward believed “Women in time to come will do much”.  Accordingly, a Loreto graduate today is a confident, engaged and optimistic woman.
