This documentary film follows the staff and students at Ampleforth College, a public day and boarding school in North Yorkshire, run by the Benedictine monks of Ampleforth Abbey. This was the first time a film crew had been admitted, and was filmed in the year that the school moved from being boys only to admitting girls. It navigates the new experiences that students and staff faced as a result, as well as the dynamics between teenage boys and their monk teachers.
