Situated in over 2,000 acres of its own land, in the foothills of the North York Moors, Ampleforth Abbey was founded by Benedictine monks in 1802. It has been home to Ampleforth College, one of the world's most foremost Catholic boarding schools, since 1803. In addition to our educational works, the Ampleforth valley, as it is affectionately known, is also a thriving tourist destination with one of the largest commercial orchards in the North of England, a Visitor Centre telling the history of Ampleforth, the Ampleforth Abbey Tea Room and Abbey Shop. Our site also boasts a full-equipped Sports Centre providing city-standard facilities in the most uplifting setting. We offer a variety of career opportunities and hope you will enjoy learning more about us.
