Our long-standing record of impressive results, always above national averages, notable student destinations and enabling students on to successful pathways post-education is a testament to the high expectations we demand of students and staff alike.
Students at La Retraite are encouraged to be bold and aspirational, empowered by their teachers to excel and flourish in all that they do.
Our commitment to delivering academic excellence is complemented by an extensive range of enrichment experiences designed to uncover a world beyond the classroom and is further enhanced by providing access to the resources and knowledge to fulfil every ambition; nurturing and challenging every step of the way.
Our inclusive Catholic ethos warmly welcomes students from all walks of life, regardless of their faith.
We wholeheartedly believe that our offer of an all-girls Catholic education positively impacts all our students.
Research indicates that all-girls Catholic schools are praised as academically exceptional, inspire a higher level of academic self-confidence and provide students with meaningful experiences and long-lasting friendships, promoting values of kindness, compassion, community and philanthropy.
A La Retraite education is defined by creating opportunities and opening doors.
We want our students to join our lasting legacy of tenacious, empathetic, courageous, and powerful young people, who push the boundaries to make a difference in tomorrow’s world.
