Residential School Groups

Groups are welcome to book retreats at Ampleforth and school groups in particular will find ideal accommodation in Alban Roe House, the former Junior School, situated at the west end of the campus with magnificent views over the valley. The House can be used for residential or day groups and is available throughout the year.

The retreat experience allows young people to develop confidence to be themselves, understand their gifts and the meaning of their faith in their lives. The gentle, relaxed and fun atmosphere provides the backdrop to make new friendships and strengthen old ones.

Accommodation is in five dormitories, one dormitory sleeping 10, three dormitories sleeping 9 and one dormitory sleeping 8 people and there are six staff/leader rooms. All bedding is provided but guests are requested to bring their own towels.

Facilities include a spacious common room with TV and DVD player, Ipod dock and pool table. Two large meeting/conference rooms perfect for group discussions. There is also a games room with ping pong and a pool table. Hot drinks can be made in the kitchenette. There are lavatories on the ground floor and there is a ground floor bedroom which is suitable for wheelchair users.

The Chapel in the House is dedicated to St Alban Roe, a member of the Community, who was martyred in the 17th century.

Two large magnificent lawns are located in front of the House for groups to run and kick a ball around. Our retreat groups also receive discounted rates in our St Alban's Sports Centre. Click here for further details.

Meals are provided in the Ambrose Griffiths Room which is a short walk from the accommodation. Our Food and Events team ensures that your group are provided with a range of quality and nutritious dishes that will keep energy levels up and satisfy even the fussiest of eaters.
