1. Rationale

Loreto College Foxrock is an all-girls voluntary secondary school run by a Board of Management under the trusteeship of the Loreto Sisters. As a Catholic school the person of Jesus Christ is at the heart of our community and Gospel values permeate the entire school experience.[1]  The distinctive philosophy of the school is derived from the insights and vision of St. Ignatius of Loyola and Mary Ward. Mary Ward’s core values of justice, freedom, sincerity, truth and joy are central to the spirituality of the school.[2]  Education in this school is person-centred and holistic.  In Foxrock we endeavour to provide a caring community and a supportive environment which encourages each student to develop her full spiritual, intellectual, moral, emotional and social potential.

"In the Spirit of Mary Ward, Loreto College Foxrock is a caring, enabling, learning community where staff and students work together with mutual respect to fulfil their God-given potential with integrity, compassion, and a sense of humour in the generous pursuit of a just world.” [3]
