Welcome to the Ampleforth College website

As you browse through this site, and I hope that you will take the time to do so, you will discover that Ampleforth is more than just a school. We are proud of our students’ successes. They do well academically, excel on the games field, make inspiring music and stretch themselves in many different ways through the enormous variety of activities on offer in our beautiful valley and beyond. We make sure that they develop and explore their innate talents and developing interests.

However, we are interested in more than worldly success. The overlap between monastery and school at Ampleforth gives an education that goes beyond academic excellence and all their other achievements. An Ampleforth education provides the girls and boys with a spiritual compass for life. The moral principles that the boys and girls develop here act as spiritual bearings to guide them through adult life in an increasingly secular world filled with moral confusion.

We are proud of our Benedictine tradition of hospitality and I hope that your first visit to this website will lead to a developing relationship with us.

Fr Wulstan Peterburs OSB
