Stonyhurst aspires to be the UK’s leading co-educational Catholic boarding and day school for 3 – 18-year-olds. The creation of the Stonyhurst Foundation is key to this ambition. The Stonyhurst Foundation is a revolutionary new charity, focused exclusively on widening access to a Stonyhurst education.
The goal of the Foundation is to remove financial barriers, making a Stonyhurst education available to as many young people as possible. The Stonyhurst Foundation aims to be the largest ring-fenced independent bursary and fee assistance charity of its kind in independent Catholic education in the UK.
It has received the Apostolic Blessing of His Holiness Pope Francis. During our formation phase, we benefited from overwhelming financial support from members of the Stonyhurst family, friends and supporters who share the vision of providing much-needed bursary and fee support for young people. Given the extent of early successes, the Foundation is looking to the future, confident that its ambitious mission will be welcomed by the wider community, ensuring that Stonyhurst continues to be a beacon of educational excellence on both the national and international stage.

About the Project
The prestigious Stonyhurst College; the UK’s leading Catholic boarding and day school for 3-18 year olds, tasked us with designing and developing the launch of their charity foundation website. Offering bursaries and charitable donations to allow a Stonyhurst education more accessible to pupils. Their website needed to integrate various donation methods from around the world whilst showcasing their proud history as an educational institute. Durving the launch of the foundation we’ve also assisted with offline collateral, videography and branded marketing assets with a continued working partnership with the college and foundation.

Thank you for the quite brilliant work that you and the whole of the Bluestone98 team have accomplished in the development of The Stonyhurst Foundation’s website and, our most recent collaboration, The 1593 Club. Throughout the design and build process the Stonyhurst Foundation leadership team have been fully integrated into the Bluestone98 creative process and regular meetings have ensured that we have been kept up to speed on progress. The technical aspects were carefully explained so that we all clearly understood how the site would function and how certain background elements would contribute in driving traffic to the pages. The net result of this close collaboration was the final website was exactly on brand, on time and on budget.
It is vital that we can rely on such diligent, proactive and technically astute digital support – Bluestone98 delivers this in spades.
It has once again been a pleasure to work with Bluestone98 on this key element of our charity and we look forward to continuing our long-standing relationship.

“Our mission is to give more children the life-changing opportunity of a Stonyhurst education, irrespective of their background and financial means.”
The 1593 Club landing page was developed as an additional page of the Stonyhurst Foundation website, which we designed and built to promote regular gifted donations originating from the date of the schools historic founding. Creating a space to share success stories of the Foundation’s beneficiaries, the launch builds on a community and legacy of the Stonyhurst family and alumni.
