Tom Morris Went To Stonyhurst

a Jesuit boarding school, from the age of ten. “It wasn’t terrifying, though a lot of beating went on,” he recalls. “It just wasn’t very good.” However, he did have some inspirational English and drama teachers, who encouraged him to write. One early effort was a rewiring of Everyman, in rhyming couplets, that outlined the plights of student life and was performed in a chapel.

'Stoneyhurst' is spelt Stonyhurst. Like most Jesuit institutions, the school is a shadow of what it was.
