The bestowal of a scholarship at Stonyhurst carries with it privilege and responsibility.

Ian Murphy, Headmaster - Stonyhurst St Mary's Hall

Scholarships are the highest awards offered by Stonyhurst and are granted at the discretion of the Headmaster. The amount of scholarship awarded is also decided by the Headmaster. Scholarships at Stonyhurst College and St Mary’s Hall provide an enriched pathway within the pupils relevant disciplines 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 enthusiastically 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.

The selection of internal candidates to sit for scholarship examinations is made only on the recommendation of relevant academic staff. 

Scholarships are available for academic excellence, art, music, drama & theatre and sport. A small number of honorary scholarships are offered in the Sixth Form. These do not carry any additional financial support, but recipients are expected to share in the life of the scholars.
