Visiting the School
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 Ampleforth.
On a normal visit, you will be shown the boarding houses, meet housemasters and housemistresses, enjoy a tour with current students, and meet several key members of staff. Depending on your child’s interests, these could include the Director of Music or the Director of Sport, for example, as well as Housemasters and Housemistresses.
During Covid-19, we are still able to offer families the opportunity to learn more about an Ampleforth education.

Join an e-Open Morning
Many parents have enjoyed our e-Open Mornings over the past three months. We will be offering these events for the foreseeable future, which allow you to learn more about Ampleforth from the comfort of your own home.
You will hear a presentation from the Headmaster, Mr Dyer, and other members of the Senior Leadership Team, and have the opportunity to hear our current students talk about their own experiences. You will also be able to ask questions, and afterwards you will receive a personal call from a senior member of staff. To see details of all upcoming events and register, please click here.
