Ampleforth College

Set in over 2,000 acres of North Yorkshire countryside, Ampleforth College provides an environment where all children flourish and go beyond their expectations.

“Everything we do at Ampleforth is geared to helping each child follow their dream.”

We offer over 50 extra-curricular activities, including archery, fishing, dance and Combined Cadet Force. Our pastoral care helps each student flourish and there is considerable emphasis on St Benedict’s maxim that “the strong should always have something to strive for and the weak have nothing to fear.”

We are committed to academic excellence and our teaching across all subject areas is excellent, but we focus on the outcome rather than the offering. We are concerned with the whole person who will one day leave our valley with what we call a ‘compass for life;’ a personal direction-finder that allows them always to hold onto their moral bearings.

Ampleforth is a place where you make friends for life. In this age of having quick answers ready for any question, we are providing a Benedictine Catholic education that begins in a place where each student experiences a sense of belonging before they can define it.
