Stonyhurst College in Lancashire has a distinguished history as one of Britain’s leading Catholic boarding schools. Originally founded by the Jesuits in Saint-Omer, France, in 1593, it arrived at its current location in the Ribble Valley in 1794. Since then, the school, which accommodates boys and girls from 13 to 18, has continued to expand, evolve and thrive. It is strongly influenced by the Ignatian ideals of education, seeking to achieve excellence in all its activities and aiming to develop men and women for others. In addition to striving for high academic results, Stonyhurst supports a wide range of charitable causes and offers an extensive range of extra-curricular activities, as well as individual attention, resources and space in which pupils can grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally.
