Stonyhurst College is an independent co-educational Catholic boarding and day school, occupying a magnificent Grade I listed building in Lancashire. Founded in 1593, it is the oldest Jesuit School in the world and famous for its connections to former pupil Sir Arthur Conan Doyle; author of Sherlock Holmes, and JRR Tolkien, author of Lord of the Rings.

Set in the beautiful Ribble Valley, Stonyhurst is home to 800 pupils during term time, but during the school holidays the College plays host to a multitude of residential lettings including religious retreats, international language schools and extra-curricular camps.  The college also holds the oldest museum in the English-speaking world, which is an incredible resource for the children of Stonyhurst to learn and enjoy.  The museum opens during certain times of the year to the public and tickets can be booked directly through the Stonyhurst College website.
