Academic Excellence

Stonyhurst has a strong reputation for educational excellence rooted in the Jesuit belief that excellence in education and learning is Ad Maiorem Dei Gloriam, for the greater glory of God.

Our academic staff are talented, knowledgeable and passionate about their subject areas – each and every one of our teachers has been hand-picked not only because of their ability to teach, but because of their ability to inspire.

Educational excellence at Stonyhurst extends far beyond academic subjects and classrooms. Cura personalis, care for the whole person, is at the heart of Jesuit schools, therefore co-curricular activities and formation of character also form part of a Stonyhurst education.

New pupils respond enthusiastically to our pupil-centred teaching which, from foundation stage to Sixth Form, stimulates intellectual curiosity and fosters a lifelong passion for learning.
