Every student appreciates the privilege of studying surrounded by culture and heritage and it is heartening to hear students describe their first rapt journey up the drive towards our grade 1 listed buildings. Of course Stonyhurst College has more to offer than buildings:
When Thomas Weld gifted Stonyhurst to the Jesuits in 1794, our school community was blessed with a permanent spiritual home. Join us in the awe-inspiring St Peter’s Church, completed in 1835, for our joyous collective worship.
Art & Design
We encourage all of our students, including those who are not studying arts subjects, to take full advantage of the facilities on offer in our well-equipped art and design studios where we nurture self-expression and creativity in all forms.
Music & Drama
Many students love to perform in our orchestra, ensembles, whole school plays, musicals and even rock bands. Those who prefer a behind the scenes role can learn the ropes in our recording studio and theatre production facilities.
Our prowess on the sports field must at least in part be attributed to our fabulous sports facilities. Stonyhurst College was the first independent school to introduce an indoor swimming pool, now a thriving sports facility for the wider community.
Stonyhurst College offers more than the living history of our Grade 1 listed buildings. Our historical collections, vestments and archives enrich lessons, and inspire teaching and learning and a lifelong love of our heritage.
With an illustrious alumni in the sciences, it is not surprising that our science labs are continually updated to offer exciting opportunities for practical experimentation to inspire budding chemists, physicists and biologists.
Every pupil has access to the well-stocked More Library, an alternative study facility and fabulous resource equipped with computers as well as an extensive range of reading material or independent research.
A modern addition and a lively bustling place where our whole school congregates over breakfast, lunch and supper, our refectory provides best in class catering facilities to satisfy the most active teenager mid growth spurt.
