Our young people this year have really lived up to the Jesuit maxim ‘the world is our house’ in terms of the breadth of their university places across the globe and the sense of adventure shown in the choice of courses. Stonyhurst aims to form young people to go and change the world and I sense that this year group aim to do just that.
