Outdoor Pursuits

The Stonyhurst estate, in all its glory, lends itself to outdoor pursuits and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy activities such as archery, horse riding, climbing and clay pigeon shooting as part of our extensive co-curricular programme.  The area around Stonyhurst provides our pupils, who choose climbing, with a range of climbing challenges, with past climbs taking place at Troy Quarry, Witches’ Quarry; Wilton Quarry and Cadshaw Rocks.

Stonyhurst has also seen its pupils participate in the National Schools Equestrian Association and the Clay Pigeon Shooting Competition at the International Shooting Competition.
