Recognised for Outstanding Careers Work

In May 2022, Stonyhurst College achieved the national Quality in Careers Standard, granted under license by Ixion (Part of the Shaw Trust Group), which is awarded to schools and education providers who can demonstrate the importance they place on careers and how they support students to make decisions about their life after school.

Stonyhurst holds an excellent ISI rating and continually works to improve the chances and opportunities of all the pupils. Recognising the importance of preparing pupils for their future careers, the school began working towards the national Quality in Careers Standard, and achieving this shows that the Headmaster, Governors and Senior Leadership team embrace, promote and endorse quality careers education, along with recognising the part it plays in the overall success of the school and its pupils.

The school offers a range of activities to introduce pupils to the world of work and to help them make decisions about life after Stonyhurst and beyond.

We are thrilled to have achieved the national Quality in Careers Standard. At Stonyhurst College we recognise the important role school plays in helping young people develop their knowledge, skills and experience so they can go on to set the world on fire.

This standard has provided a flexible framework that enabled us to audit our work on careers and ensure our pupils are receiving the best advice, practical support and experience to enable them to be the best they can be.
