Ampleforth origins

John Bolton was born to Robert & Alice Bolton of Brindle on July 6th 1735. He joined the St Lawrence, Dieulouard, community taking the monastic name Anselm. He was sent to the English mission in 1763 and, by 1764, was chaplain to Lord Fairfax at Gilling Castle, Yorkshire.

In 1783, he bought a cottage, Ampleforth Lodge, and some land so his successors would be independent of the Gilling estate.

When he learned that his community were still seeking a permanent home, he made Ampleforth Lodge over to them. So, in 1802, Prior Anselm Appleton was joined by other monks to establish the Monastery which grew into Ampleforth Abbey as it stands today.

With the wider community

This is a developing and strengthening area of school activity. The school encourages visitors from the wider community to visit and enhance our curriculum. We visit local Nursing homes and residencies to provide vital links between the younger and older generations. Links between our school and the Local Authority Schools of Gregson Lane and Coupe Green are growing stronger with many joint projects taking place.
