Principal’s Welcome

Stonyhurst is a school which constantly looks to innovate and use its history and traditions as a lens on the present and the future. The opening of Stonyhurst International School, Penang will mark one of the most exciting and significant developments in our 427 years of history and we look forward to welcoming our first pupils.

At the heart of everything we do is delivering an exceptional education for our pupils and ensuring that their formation, both inside and outside of the classroom, is the best in the world. We empower them to be the best that they can be, shaping leaders of the future.

The Jesuit values upon which Stonyhurst was founded in 1593 continue to underpin everything we do today. Stonyhurst pupils are encouraged to involve themselves fully in the opportunities offered to them. Living in a supportive and diverse community, they are helped to develop those qualities of character that will distinguish them in later life as men and women for others. An Ignatian school provides a foundation for such a life, an education that nurtures individuality and encourages generosity. It is a springboard to a life of purpose.

We achieve high academic results, have exceptional pastoral care, and offer an extensive range of co-curricular activities. The pupils in our care are given the individual attention, resources and space in which to grow intellectually, spiritually and emotionally.

I warmly invite you to come and find out more about our plans for Stonyhurst International School, Penang and what it will mean to be a part of our international community.
