"The final product that Ampleforth delivers is great and every parent needs to bear that in mind: Ampleforth produces well-adjusted, high achieving, caring young men and women.”  Ben & Anna Gibson, Current Parents. 

Most families begin the Admissions process by visiting the school on a typical day.  This is an important stage, and some families visit on several occasions in the lead-up to their children joining us. We can organise visits on any day from Monday to Saturday during term time, subject to availability. During your day you will have the opportunity to meet the Head if available, and another member of the Senior Management Team. You will also visit two houses to gain an insight into the strong pastoral care which influences many parents in choosing Ampleforth. Current pupils will give you a tour of the College. Depending on your child’s age, you may also meet either the Head of Middle School or Head of Sixth Form, to discuss curricular matters. You will also meet the Senior Admissions Registrar, who, together with the Admissions team, will liaise with you over the coming months and years to ensure a smooth application journey. 

Please telephone or email the admissions team to book your visit and ‘Come and See’ what Ampleforth could mean for your own family.
