Stonyhurst is an independent, private, coeducational Catholic Boarding and Day school based in the North West of England and guided by the principles of the Society of Jesus. This means that we attach particular importance to emotional and spiritual development as well as academic excellence. Any boy or girl who would benefit from the education we offer is welcome to apply for a place at Stonyhurst. In addition to young Catholics, we have young people here who belong to other Christian traditions, and other faiths, and we encourage all of them to play a full part in the spiritual life of the school.
Stonyhurst has a beautiful setting, fascinating heritage, fine reputation and excellent facilities. The Jesuit values upon which the College was founded in 1593 continue to underpin everything we do today.
We achieve high academic results, have exceptional pastoral care, and offer an extensive range of extra-curricular activities. The pupils in our care are given the individual attention, resources and space in which to grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally.
Stonyhurst pupils are encouraged to involve themselves fully in the opportunities offered to them. Living in a supportive and diverse community, they are helped to develop those qualities of character that will distinguish them in later life as men and women for others. A Jesuit education is a foundation for such a life, an education that nurtures individuality and encourages generosity.
