St Edward’s and St Wilfrid’s House is situated in the northern half of Hume House, which opened as purpose-built boarding accommodation in 2001. From September 2020, it became home to Years 7 and 8.

Dr David Moses is the Housemaster of Years 7 and 8.  David has, since 2005, had many roles at Ampleforth, including Master of The Wine Society, Head of Music Scholars and Housemaster of St John’s House. Dr Moses went to Edinburgh University as a mature student, from which university he took a First Class Honours Degree in English Literature. Dr Moses taught at Edinburgh between 2000 and 2005, specialising in Literary Theory, Medieval Literature, and the Scottish Novel. During this time he researched for a PhD in Medieval Literature and Theology and was awarded his doctorate in 2003. He continues to research and publish articles and reviews in academic journals on a number of topics in Medieval Literature and is a specialist on the works of the late medieval Scottish poet Robert Henryson. David is also a member of the College's Senior Leadership Team.

David and his wife Clare have created a home from home for the boarders and day children, and strike a happy balance between academic success, a full programme of activities and sport, as well as plenty of time to have fun and relax.

About St Edward & St Wilfrid

The House celebrates two patrons. St Edward (died 1066) was king of England and a man of great piety. He was a generous benefactor to Westminster Abbey from where the Ampleforth Community originates. St Wilfrid (died 709) was a monk of Ripon and Archbishop of York noted for his apostolic zeal, courage and loyalty.
