La Retraite Roman Catholic Girls' School

Why Choose A Catholic Girls School

Why Choose A Catholic Girls School?

At La Retraite, every aspect of school life has Christ at the centre. We believe that every one of our girls is made in the image and likeness of God and are unique and equal to others.

We wholeheartedly believe that our offer of an all-girls Catholic education can positively impact all of our students, regardless of their faith. The benefits of such are widely discussed and practised at La Retraite, as evidenced in our long history of success and outstanding outcomes for all our girls.

All-girls Catholic schools are praised for being academically exceptional and pride themselves on excellence, inspiring a higher level of academic self-confidence which encourages girls to pursue careers in traditionally male-dominated STEM fields.

La Retraite provides every girl with meaningful experiences and long-lasting friendships, in a stimulating and supportive environment that promotes values of kindness, compassion, community, gratitude and philanthropy. Our ethos encourages girls to develop as like-minded young women, who are inspired, ambitious and fearless with a culture that drives and celebrates achievement.

Our whole school offer, encompassing the Catholic ethos, all-girls nature, outstanding education, unique pathways and broad enrichment programme can enhance the lives of all girls and we warmly welcome students of all faiths and none, to make their mark on the La Retraite legacy.
