Loreto High School Chorlton is particularly successful in securing good progress for two groups of students who often underperform: those who start at the school with attainment in mathematics at Level 3; and those known to be eligible for free school meals. Both groups make outstanding progress in mathematics and there are much smaller gaps in attainment compared to other students than are seen nationally
