Information for students starting in September 2021

Welcome to our information page for all parents interested in sending their daughter to Loreto Balbriggan starting in September 2021. Due to Covid 19 it is not possible for us to hold information evenings in the school, as we normally would do at this time of the year.  To compensate for this we have made a short information video presentation. Combined with our prospectus video and the virtual video tour made for this year’s first years, we hope that we can communicate a flavour of the school in both Covid and non Covid times.  Links to these videos are available at the bottom of this page.

Please click on the link below to view the school’s Admissions Policy. This policy complies with the requirements of the Education Act, 1998, the Education (Admission to Schools) Act 2018, and the Equal Status Act 2000. In drafting this policy, the board of management of the school has consulted with school staff, the school’s patron, and with parents of children attending the school. You can also contact the school at admissions@loretobalbriggan.ie to request a hard copy.
