Ampleforth College

Set in over 2,000 acres of North Yorkshire countryside, Ampleforth College provides an environment where all children go beyond their potential.

Ampleforth is more than just a school; our students do well academically, excel on the games field, make inspiring music and stretch themselves through the enormous variety of activities on offer in our beautiful valley, which they leave with a desire to go beyond their potential, whatever that may be.

We are concerned with the whole person who will one day leave our valley with what we call a ‘compass for life;’ a personal direction-finder that allows them to always hold onto their moral bearings. Come and see how we prepare our students for life beyond the Ampleforth valley.
