Ampleforth College - York

York, North Yorkshire, YO62 4ER

Ampleforth is a very successful Roman Catholic boarding school set in a stunningly beautiful rural location in Yorkshire and attached to Ampleforth Abbey. Catholicism is treated very seriously at Ampleforth where a strong Christian ethos underpins the life of the school and seeks to provide students with a spiritual and moral compass for life. Ampleforth is not hugely selective academically and results reflect the broad intake. The school offers a wide range of extra-curricular opportunities and a genuine all-round education. Drama is well catered for with a purpose-built theatre and a new Performing Arts Centre.  There is a strong emphasis on the teaching of Christian Theology throughout the school. Regardless of which A Levels are studied, all students take a compulsory course in Christian Living.

The school, under the leadership of the new Head Robin Dyer (former longstanding Deputy at Wellington College) is finding its feet again after a few unsettled years. Mr Dyer has agreed to stay on at the school until 2022, ensuring continued stability.

Entry Procedure: About 30 new students join the 6th form each year.  6th form offers are made on the basis of an interview and a reference. Students then need to achieve 3 x Grade 5 and 2 x Grade 6 at GCSE.
