What says..

Boarders come from all over UK; southern pupils catch a Hogwarts Express at the beginning of term: it is (just) possible to enjoy breakfast in London and lunch in school. Day pupils from Yorkshire; parents a genuine mix of local aristocracy, a few military, professional and non-professional.

What the school says...

Set in the beautiful surroundings of the Ampleforth valley, children at St Martin's Ampleforth receive the best education you could wish for, allowed to be children but learning to be adults. Your child will learn how to be successful whether in the classroom, on the sports field or on stage, but there is an added extra - the spiritual and moral attitude to be a success as a person. ...Read more

Thank the school

Parents and pupils often have cause to acknowledge the help and support they have received from their schools, for example in helping in the choice of further education or careers. "Say thank you" allows you to send a quick note of appreciation to the school in general or to an individual teacher.

This is a thank you to your school, teacher or careers adviser who helped you to get where you are now.

Please fill in the fields below, which we will transform into a letter of thanks from you to them.

Special Education Needs

St. Martin's Ampleforth seeks to be inclusive as far as it is possible. The school is located in a Grade One listed Castle so physical disabilities would be difficult to accommodate comfortably.
