What The Good Schools Guide says..
The uniform consists of dark blue skirts with cream blouse/shirt, tie and very, um, striking blazers with navy blue, gold, white and maroon stripes: a full classroom made this editor think of a convocation of outsize maroon wasps. Girls say they make them look like deckchairs, but we were assured, 'You get used to them,’ and one admitted she had become fond of hers...

What The Good Schools Guide says
Since 2006, Mrs Jane Beever MA PGCE NPQH (early 40s), first lay head. Educated at a Catholic grammar in Liverpool, read French and Italian at Liverpool and Leeds universities; previously deputy head at Loreto. Head is also a national leader in education.
Easy to talk to and approachable (weekly drop in time for parents), humorous and realistic. Girls value her knowing them all by name and the interest she takes in them at chance meetings. Believes in providing a structured environment with clear rules but is very mindful of individuals - ‘We are a very human establishment’. Enjoys walking – ‘but my outside interests are mainly Loreto, in England and abroad!’
Specialisms in science and maths. Glowing Ofsted re curriculum, achievements, teaching and learning, sixth form and relationships – girls...
