La Retraite is a vibrant, welcoming Roman Catholic school for girls with a mixed Sixth Form. In 2013, the School was recognized as being 'Outstanding' by Ofsted and has celebrated consistently excellent exam results. In 2016, it celebrated some of the best progress in the country at secondary school level and was National Winner of the Pupil Premium Awards which recognised the support for disadvantaged pupils to make excellent progress.

Founded in 1880, La Retraite’s sense of tradition, our strong faith community, and our approach to education combine to provide an atmosphere where students learn best, and where they grow and develop into thoughtful and responsible Christians determined to play a significant role in the 21st century.

We are really proud of our pupils and their successes and have a flourishing alumni community who serve to inspire our pupils and support them in their future goals. Our Scholarship Programme gives students opportunities to thrive academically, to gain real insights from career mentors in their chosen professions and to make excellent preparation for university applications.

Whether it is debating, sports or film making there are opportunities for all pupils to enjoy a broad and balanced education which recognises their unique talents.

Mr Malins, Headteacher, warmly invites parents to attend our Open Sessions, which will include a tour of our extensive facilities, the opportunity to speak with teachers and members of the Senior Leadership Team, and information on our outstanding Scholarship Programme.
