Alister (OS 04) joined Stonyhurst as a Grammarian, having previously attended a state school in Moldova. It was the simple things such as electricity, heating and running water that most struck him initially.
Alister recalls his Poetry Playroom being inspired by a couple of visiting missionaries from Kenya. Together, they raised enough funds to go there themselves after their A Levels to build a boarding house for the school.
“The bursary I received to go to Stonyhurst transformed my life. And it’s not just about the money, but also the commitment that Stonyhurst made in me to be the best that I could be.”
Alister left Stonyhurst in 2004 and has a BA in Romanian and East European Studies from UCL and PGC in Technology Management from the OU. He is currently a Programme Manager at Capgemini. He is married with one child and lives in London.
