Spirituality

Ampleforth College is a Catholic boarding and day school that aims to bring the Christian experience to every area of its life. 

Drawing on a 1500 year tradition of Benedictine education, we foster a full understanding of positive Benedictine values and provide important foundations for our students to continue to walk on their journey of faith into adult life.

The spiritual life of the school is overseen by our Dean, Fr Ambrose Henley, who is a monk in community at Ampleforth Abbey. 

Every student has access to a House Chaplain who is available to offer spiritual advice and guidance, supporting and coordinating closely with the Housemistress/Housemaster who has responsibility for pastoral care.  The House Chaplain is also responsible for helping shape the daily prayer and sacramental life of the house community. 

The Abbey Church provides an important focus for the spiritual life of the school where the entire community comes together to celebrate Mass on Sunday mornings.
