Stonyhurst College is an exciting time for our young people. After progressing from the Prep School, they enter the world of adulthood where they discover their passions and talents by immersing themselves fully into academic and co-curricular life.
Teaching encourages pupils within the College to work and research independently and to think for themselves more so as they work their way through the year groups. The pupils in our care are given the individual attention, resources and space in which to grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally.
Year groups explained...

Did you know... at Stonyhurst the word 'Playroom' represents each year group but also the name of the social space where pupils socialise and relax throughout the day.
