  • Channel 4 News published this video item, entitled “Ampleforth College faces questions over pupil safeguarding” – below is their description.

    Ampleforth College is one of the most prominent Catholic private schools in the country. But In 2018, an independent inquiry found that a number of children there had suffered appalling sexual abuse over decades, involving monks at Ampleforth Abbey.

    In November the school was banned by the government from accepting new pupils, after it failed to show inspectors that it could keep them safe.

    Now this programme has seen a letter to the government from a solicitor for victims of historic abuse at the school, alleging it has not fully separated itself from the Abbey, as it had been told to. The school’s leaders deny the claims.
