Headmaster, Dr Julian Murphy, welcomes you to Our Lady’s Convent School, an independent Catholic day school, part of the Loughborough Endowed Schools Foundation. Our Lady’s Convent School is founded on strong Christian principles, we are a school famed for its warm and supportive ethos; a beacon of holistic education. Originally a girls’ school we now welcome boys into the Preparatory School.

From September 2019 we will be welcoming boys into our Senior School, thereby extending our excellent educational offering to boys and girls from the age of 4 to 18 years. In anticipation of this change, our School name will, from September 2018, change to Loughborough Amherst School. This name is in honour of Mary Amherst, the first English Superior of the Sisters of Providence, and the first Head of our School in 1850.

We enjoy the best of both worlds, the community and personal support of a small school combined with access to the physical and human resources of the entire Loughborough Endowed Schools campus. This provides numerous benefits for students, from access to one of the finest music schools in the country through to individualised mentoring for Oxbridge applications from a wide variety of specialised staff.

Staff pride themselves on helping to nurture young people who are confident but not arrogant and ambitious but not materialistic.

If you are interested in finding out more about our wonderful school, please do not hesitate to contact our Registrar, Wendy Spencer, [email protected].
