  • Catholic independent boarding & day school for girls
  • Commencing 2019

Loreto Normanhurst is a leading Catholic independent day and boarding school for girls in Years 5-12. Established in 1897 by the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (IBVM), the school is part of a worldwide network of Loreto schools including seven in Australia.

Located in the upper north shore of Sydney, some 24 kilometres from the CBD, Loreto Normanhurst is set on over 25 acres of pristine grounds. It offers state of the art facilities for nearly 1,100 students, including 150 boarders, most of whom are from Country NSW.

Loreto Normanhurst is a vibrant school which strives to meet the needs of the young women in its care through the Loreto Normanhurst Student Growth Model (LNSGM), a unique and award-winning model of education. The LNSGM develops each student holistically in the areas of Faith, Academic, Community and Extra-curricular. Through the LNSGM, the school seeks to affirm and encourage the development of young women who will be well equipped to take their place in an ever-changing 21st Century world. The school fosters a liberal education, with independent learning and the pursuit of personal excellence central to its teaching and learning philosophy. 

The staff at Loreto Normanhurst are an innovative group of professionals with vision, energy and appropriate qualifications and experience for the roles they hold. The school places high value on the continuing development of wisdom, integrity and passionate creativity in its employees. Relationships are central to life at Loreto Normanhurst and the nurturing of community and teamwork is an integral part of the way in which the staff at the school work together.

After eighteen years of outstanding leadership, the last ten of which have been in the role of Principal, Ms Barbara Watkins is resigning from the position at the end of 2018, having led the school to its current position as a leading educational institution. The School Board seeks to appoint a dynamic and visionary educational leader to the role of Principal from 2019, to continue a legacy of 120 years' of excellence in girls' education and to lead the school community to fulfill its strategic intent as a Faith-centred, Person-centred, and Ecology-centred school.
