Impact Statement

Through our Arrupe volunteering programme sixty Stonyhurst Sixth Formers spend one afternoon per week volunteering with local organisations. This includes helping in local primary schools as classroom assistants and sports coaches. The value of this to our host schools is evident from the degree of disappointment on those occasions when our pupils are unexpectedly unable to attend. Another group host the pupils who visit us from Newfields school every week for wheelchair dancing – a partnership which is now in its 22nd year, and which also led to a fundraising effort last year to provide Newfields with some new musical instruments.

Numbers attending our annual primary schools’ science fair have increased year on year due to positive feedback, to the extent that places now have to be limited, given the need to prioritise health and safety in the laboratories. A very well attended primary schools’ singing day was held last year: about 150 pupils attended from half a dozen local state schools, and this will now become an annual fixture.

St Joseph’s School, Hurst Green, is a state primary school, which shares our Jesuit identity. We continue to work very closely indeed with St Joseph’s, providing their catering on a daily basis, and providing teaching assistants and help with sport via the Arrupe programme. We also share a Jesuit Chaplain with St Joseph’s and the parish of Hurst Green, and the three communities work closely together. In 2017 a plot of land was donated by Stonyhurst to St Joseph’s, to enable them to create a new football pitch.

Stonyhurst enjoys a strong partnership with Faith Primary School, Everton, and provides strong support to this school which is located in one of the poorest wards in the country. Regular visits take place between the two schools and Stonyhurst pupils provide mentoring to year 5 and year 6 at Faith Primary. Pupils at the College raise funds for a range of charitable causes through their own registered charity, Learning to Care. During the current year, more than £20,000 was raised for good causes in this way. Beneficiaries include Derian House children’s hospice, Asthma UK and Maachild, an education charity for the Maasai in southern Kenya. In July 2018, pupils and staff also ran their annual holiday week for disabled children, many of whom attend local state schools, providing valuable respite care for their parents or guardians.

St Vincent's Primary school in Liverpool continue to access our facilities, and in particular using the Stonyhurst Historic Collections in the St Vincent’s pupils’ learning, but this is likely to grow into a deeper partnership in due course.
