For many, a childhood by the sea is a dream; at Rossall, that dream becomes a reality. Rossall is an exceptional school, rooted in its heritage yet innately dynamic, brimming with personality and excited about the future.

We are shaped by our coastal location and somehow infused with the sense of anticipation, curiosity and adventure that early explorers must have felt - where can we go? What will we find? How can we get there?

We are shaped by the wonderful architecture which creates a safe haven within its Cambridge-like quads, by the vast dining hall, atmospheric Chapel and beautiful rooms.

We are shaped by our expansive site and make full use of our 160 acres, particularly for outdoor activities and sport, from cross country running and CCF field exercises to golf practice and Ross-hockey on the beach. Our ponds, trees, marsh, grassland and dunes also provide unending scope for outdoor learning and discovery.

But above all, we are shaped by the great people, both staff and students, who live and work at Rossall. There is an indelible Rossall spirit that is cultivated here - warmth, courage, humour, empathy, resilience, curiosity and the ability to talk to anyone are some of its most prominent features! It is a compelling mix.

Our teachers provide a brilliant balance of inspiration, care and deep subject knowledge to fire the imagination and ensure that our students have all the building blocks they need for success, not only at school and not only in the classroom, but also later on in life. We are proud of our students' academic achievements and delighted that they achieve consistently above national and world averages in their examinations.

We deliver a broad and balanced curriculum with the principles of the International Baccalaureate learner profile at its heart. In the Nursery, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) learning goals. From the age of 2 to 11, we offer the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP). At age 16, students sit GCSE and iGCSE examinations, then students choose between the IB or A Level route in the Sixth Form. The IB principles run through our teaching and learning in every phase of the school and underpin a dynamic and enjoyable yet rigorous learning experience.

With nearly fifty different nationalities living and learning together at Rossall, we truly are a global village. The combination of UK day students and students from right across the world creates an exciting international dimension and an appreciation of diverse culture, religions and politics.

Whether joining Rossall as a day or boarding pupil, you will be coming to a vibrant and happy community. All the basic needs are catered for, but in a most generous way - food is plentiful and delicious, we have an on-site Medical Centre, our houses are beautifully appointed and our houseparents and tutors are amazing - adept, knowledgeable and attuned to the needs of the young people in their care.

To come and experience the School first hand, you can arrange a private tour to fit in with your commitments.

Scholarships: To enable a wide range of children to join Rossall, we offer a number of scholarships each year. We offer academic, music, drama and sports scholarships to children in Years 3, 5, 7, 9 and 12.
