Stonyhurst College delegation in Gibraltar visit

The long heritage of Stonyhurst College’s links with Gibraltar was cemented recently with a visit from a delegation from Stonyhurst, England.

The College, a Roman Catholic boarding school in the Jesuit tradition, founded in 1593, has educated many generations of families from Gibraltar and is immensely proud of its association.

One of the first local pupils to attend Stonyhurst was Horace Parodi in 1881. Three years after leaving the college, Horace Parodi was called to the Bar in 1891. The Isola family married into the Parodi family and so the well-know legal practice, Isola and Isola was born.

During the recent trip to Gibraltar, the Stonyhurst party of Mr Laurence Crouch (Headmaster of St. Mary’s Hall, Stonyhurst), Mrs Charmaine Smith (Director of Boarding) and Mr Jonathan Hewat (Director of Marketing and Admissions) visited Loreto Convent School, met with Bishop Caruana, Governor Sir Francis Richards and many former pupils along with current parents and prospective families.

Mr Jonathan Hewat, Director of Marketing and Admissions from Stonyhurst said:

“Stonyhurst is proud of its long tradition with Gibraltar and we were delighted to meet so many people associated with Stonyhurst or so interested in its long and distinguished tradition.”
