Interested in our scholarships?

Scholarships are the highest awards offered by Stonyhurst and are granted at the discretion of the Headmaster. They are available in Academics, Drama & Theatre, Music and Sport (rugby, cricket, hockey, netball and tennis) at Year 7, Year 9 and Year 12 entry.

Scholarships at Stonyhurst College and Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall provide an enriched pathway within a pupil's relevant discipline and only carry a small amount of fee remission. Should further financial support be required, please refer to our bursary application process which can be found here.

The tenure of a scholarship is intended to be for the duration of the holder’s education at Stonyhurst, provided that the holder’s academic progress and general conduct remain satisfactory and that the holder continues to fulfil the obligations associated with the scholarship, evidenced in an annual review of progress and contribution. All external scholarship candidates need to have registered for a place at Stonyhurst before applying.
