Founding & History
A second Loreto school was opened in Pretoria by the sisters of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Loreto Sisters) in 1923 in Hillcrest.

To accommodate the development of the University of Pretoria, the Hillcrest school relocated in 1976. Named Queenshill Convent, it catered for learners from Grade 1 to Standard 10. In 1983 a new pre-primary building was constructed. In 1993, circumstances made it necessary for the sisters to move from the "convent on the hill" to their house in Skinner Street. The high school was closed and the school became co-educational. It was renamed Loreto School Queenswood. Extensive renovations were carried out in 1999.

The Loreto Sisters remain the owners of the school and are represented on the Governing Body. They continue to guide the operations of the school.
