Stonyhurst is a springboard to a life of purpose. We empower our boys and girls to be the best that they can be, shaping leaders of the future who carry a sense of purpose and a desire to make the world a better place. As we guide every pupil through their own individual academic, sporting, creative, spiritual and emotional journey, we watch with great pride as our boys and girls grow to be men and women for others.
Quant je puis - 'As much as I can'.
There are plenty of reasons to choose Stonyhurst College for your son or daughter's education.
College life is fast paced and varied. Of course we encourage our pupils to work hard academically - we are first and foremost a leading independent school after all - but life at Stonyhurst extends far beyond the classroom. We recognise the importance of developing the whole individual so that our boys and girls are well-rounded, confident and ready to succeed in the real world.
Below you can find out about about our strong academic departments, the extensive programme of co-curricular activities that we offer, our world class facilities and more.
