Welcome to Loyola, a leading Catholic preparatory school in Essex, for boys aged 3 to 11.  We know that choosing a school for your child is one of the most important aspects of parenting and we hope your visit to our website will give you the information you need to make your choice easier. I'm delighted that our boys appear throughout the website talking about their own experiences at Loyola. I hope this gives you a really rounded perspective on our school life. You may also care to view our 2013 Independent Schools' Inspectorate report Results and inspection reports in which the school is found to be excellent in achievement; curriculum; EYFS; quality of teaching; spiritual, moral, social and cultural education; pastoral care and links with parents, and the Brentwood Inspection Report 2014 in which Loyola is named as outstanding in all respects View Report.   In 2016, the school was inspected under the new inspection framework which ensures that schools fulfil their statutory obligations.  Loyola was found to be fully compliant in all areasResults and inspection reports Should you wish to read the text of my end of year Academy Speech given in July 2016, it follows the Term Calendar on Latest news or if you require any further information, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming you and your son into our school community.
