School History

Loreto Girls High School Limuru KCSE Results

Lorete Girls was founded in the 1930s opening its doors to first students in 1936. The school was founded by Lorete sisters who were Catholic Missionaries from Ireland.

Sister S.M. Dolores Stafford, S.M. Theresa Joseph O’Sullivan, and S.M. Veronica Bradley were the founders as they believed in the vision of Mary Ward.

Mary Word was the founder of the Loreto Sisters and she believed through education, women soon would do great things in society.

They first introduced a primary school to prepare the girls to sit for the primary examination. The school started with 7 girls who didn’t stand the severe cold and mist of the area and they disappeared.

They later returned and sat for their primary school examination in 1938 and went on to join teachers’ training courses. In 1947, the school launched its secondary school class and its two students went on to pass the Senior Cambridge Certificate Examination.

Since its inauguration, the school has been a center of excellence and one of the best-performing schools in Kenya. The school has also undergone a massive transformation in terms of structure and student population.

In 1956, the school had only two streams with 56 students in both streams. Currently, the school has more than five streams with a population of above 700 students and over 40 teaching staff.

The school is under the sponsorship of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Nairobi.
