‘As­pire not to have more, but to be more’


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.
