    Rossall School

    Set on an historic 160 acre campus on the picturesque Lancashire coastline, Rossall is one of the country’s leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools, where boys and girls aged 2-18 are nurtured in a safe, secure and supportive environment.

    Here pupils enjoy learning and living in a friendly, busy and challenging atmosphere in the classroom, after school and at weekends. The sense of community that defines the School is achieved through the unrivalled standard of pastoral care, the diverse pupil base and also through the permanent boarding population.

    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 cultures, religions and politics.

    Growing and learning in such a friendly and culturally diverse environment helps our young people develop into well-rounded, confident and knowledgeable individuals – true global citizens.

    Rossall’s generous facilities support our aims for teaching and learning excellence. From our dedicated Science building and state of the art Design Technology workshops to our bright, spacious Art studios complete with a computer-rich Graphics suite, the school provides every student with the space and resources to pursue their academic studies and outside interests.

    For those with musical ambitions, the Beecham Music School, with its own practice organ, orchestra rehearsal room and Sibelius suite offers the opportunity to develop their skills whilst our theatres, performance and exhibition spaces provide budding singers, actors and artists with the chance to explore their talents.

    With the recent renovation of the Sixth Form study room (based on designs created by the students themselves) and the opening of a new kitchen classroom to support the development of Food Studies skills, Rossall is a school which is constantly evolving to meet the needs of its students as well as the curriculum.

    Beyond the classroom, our spacious 160 acre campus has extensive sports and recreation facilities, including a 25-metre indoor heated swimming pool, squash courts, tennis courts, fives courts, a modern all-weather sports pitch, a multi-use games area, two indoor sports halls, extensive sports pitches and a fitness room. That’s not to mention our own beach, which is put to good use for our own exclusive sport of Ross Hockey.
