Introduction

 

Stonyhurst St Mary’s Hall (SMH) is the preparatory school to Stonyhurst College. A lineal descendant of Hodder Place, it is presumed to be the oldest preparatory school in the country. [1]

 

Developing pupils into independent learners, St Mary’s Hall places great emphasis on boosting their numeracy and literacy skills. The balanced (wider) curriculum provides them with an opportunity to demonstrate their strengths, increasing their competence across a range of disciplines through fun and engaging ways. 

 

Featuring some of the finest facilities in the UK, including a new music department, an observatory, a swimming pool and the Centenaries Theatre, St Mary’s Hall allows pupils to benefit from the invaluable heritage of the Stonyhurst estate. [2]

 

The school’s community is home to pupils from across the world, boasting ethnic diversity which enhances the richness of the learning experience. Stretching pupils beyond the National Curriculum expectations within a warm and welcoming environment, St Mary’s Hall enables them to approach further education with maximised abilities and high levels of cultural flexibility.
