From the late 19th century, Blundells School educated young men from all over the globe, including a number of countries in the then British Empire.

Blundell’s School has records of pupils from a great many places. Some of the earliest are boys from the Channel Islands with French heritage but by the end of the 19th century, Blundells also hosted young men from around the globe. 

This included the Liesching family who are listed as from Ceylon (now Sri Lanka) and Mahomed Yoonus Sait from Bangalore. 

Throughout the early and mid-20th century Blundell’s continued to welcome students from a diverse range of backgrounds, including pupils from Brazil, Bombay, Patna and Singapore, including a young man called Tewfik Fahmy whose father held the title His Excellency Director of the Egyptian State Railways.
