This Academic Year marks a very important anniversary for Stonyhurst and Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall: the 20th anniversary of full co-education!

This anniversary is a great cause for celebration, and there will be a programme of events and initiatives aimed at inspiring the Stonyhurst’s current girls, focusing on academic excellence, co-curricular activities, chaplaincy and perspectives and horizons.

Alumnae of Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall and Stonyhurst College will be visiting us to speak to current pupils about their time here and what they have experienced and achieved since. Around 20 alumnae, each of whom has gone on to achieve amazing things, will be appointed ‘Anniversary Ambassadors’.

These Ambassadors will take on a mentoring role this year; offering careers or university guidance in their respective fields, providing work experience placements and visiting the College to give talks in-person or from abroad via videoconferencing.

Stonyhurst was one of the first Catholic independent boarding and day schools to truly embrace co-education. We are now a home away from home for many of the children of our first alumnae, something which makes this year even more special.

Be sure to keep an eye on our websites, news pages and social media accounts to ensure you don’t miss out on any of the exciting events and initiatives planned for this year.
