Boarding at St. Martin's Ampleforth
St. Martin's Ampleforth offers excellent boarding facilities with an equally exceptional boarding team, to help your child's experience of boarding life be as memorable as possible. As well as full boarding we can offer flexi-boarding of two, three and four nights a week. Boarding parents are welcome to visit school as often as they choose.
Boarders are accommodated in bright and cheerful rooms in both the Castle (Senior Boys) and the purpose-built Foal Yard (Girls and Junior Boys). Current and former pupils never forget the pleasures of sleeping in a castle, nor do they forget the friendships forged in these exciting days.
The boarders are cared for by a dedicated team who look after their every need. The Boarding Team consists of our Headmaster, House Parents, resident teachers, matrons and boarding assistants to ensure that the boarding supervision and pastoral care is of the highest standard. Each year the team is joined by two resident gap students who at the moment are from Australia.
As well as school holidays, we have two exeat weekends, one in September and one in November.
Trains to and from London
At the beginning and end of each exeat, half-term and term we run accompanied trains between York Station and London King's Cross. You can arrange to use these trains through the Whole School Travel Co-ordinator at Ampleforth College, who liaises with our own Travel Manager, full details on request.
