Stonyhurst have developed an immersive, state-of-the-art virtual tour to provide prospective families with an opportunity to explore Stonyhurst College and Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall from the comfort of their own homes. Using the latest digital technology prospective parents and their families can take a tour of the facilities on offer.
The seamless aerial view and clear side navigation enables visitors to navigate from different areas of the campus with ease, view the wide range of facilities, boarding areas and classrooms on offer. This innovation is available via the Stonyhurst website and is easily accessible for people to visit 24/7.
From discovering the breadth of sports facilities to visiting Stonyhurst’s very own museum and chapels, the virtual tour offers individuals a unique insight into studying and living at Stonyhurst. The tour is punctuated with information points, which provide further insight into specific locations through historical facts, imagery and video content, bringing the tour to life.
As well as providing a wealth of insight for prospective pupils and families across the world, alumni will enjoy a trip down memory lane walking the corridors they once roamed and the grounds they once played in.
John Browne, Stonyhurst’s Headmaster says: ‘Stonyhurst enjoys using it’s extraordinary history as a lens on the future for our young people. The Jesuits are world renowned for being pioneers in education and always striving for excellence. We are always looking to see how we can embrace new innovations and technology to keep our educational formation at the cutting edge. This virtual tour is just the latest offering in the digital transformation of the College and St Mary’s Hall which last year saw the launch of the Stonyhurst Anywhere online learning platform. This platform contains a blend of live academic lessons, pastoral sessions, tutorials, meetings, talks, resources and tasks.
Whilst we can never replace the true warmth and experience of visiting our campus in person, we do hope that families find this virtual tour informative and that it offers a sense of what we have to offer at our wonderful school.’
The Stonyhurst virtual tour is live on the Stonyhurst College website now.
