About Stonyhurst

Inspired by the beautiful Stonyhurst estate and the heritage of the world’s oldest continuous Jesuit school, our students pursue academic excellence alongside spiritual and emotional growth and learn to embody their school motto: Quant je puis, as much as I can, in every activity.

Stonyhurst College has collected remarkable artefacts and books from its earliest days at St Omers, offering sanctuary to sacred medieval objects at risk of destruction during the Reformation. The first items arrived at the College in 1609; sumptuous 15th century cloth of gold and red silk damask velvet vestments, ordered by Henry VII for use in Westminster Abbey and taken by Henry VIII to the Field of Cloth of Gold.  From the date of this acquisition, we make our claim to be the oldest museum in the English-speaking world.
