Co-curricular activities offered at Stonyhurst vary according to age group, time of year and staff availability and interests but the range and choice of opportunities available is extraordinary. Talks, visits and workshops provide a wealth of new experiences to supplement the rich variety of clubs on offer in any given term
Connecting and Giving
Student groups like Learning to Care, Arrupe and Children for Children are supported in helping others through direct action and fundraising, whilst motivated individuals can organise their own events, knowing that Stonyhurst staff and students will be with them every step of the way.
The wide range of Clubs and Societies in Art, Music, Drama and Dance is well supplemented by individual trips, visits and workshops, giving every student an extraordinary range of creative opportunities.
In addition to further developing skills in team games for boys and girls, Stonyhurst pupils are able to try a huge variety of new sports and activities at a range of levels, from ultimate frizbee to golf, shooting, skiing, horse-riding, ice-skating and many more.
Outdoors and Leadership
The Combined Cadet Force and Duke of Edinburgh schemes underpin the wide range of outdoor and leadership opportunities that Stonyhurst students enjoy. Chances for activities like canoeing, climbing and camping begin at St Mary’s Hall and increase in breadth and challenge as students strengthen and grow.
