    Rossall School

    Rossall School is one of the country’s leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools, in a picturesque and historic setting on the Lancashire coastline. Amidst striking architecture, on a generous 160-acre campus, boys and girls aged 0–18 are nurtured in a safe, secure and supportive environment.


    Our pupils are truly outstanding individuals – the extraordinary success of this community is reflected in our confident, accomplished, courageous, aspirant, compassionate and fun-loving young people.

    There is no doubt that all of our pupils benefit from being part of an intellectually exciting and culturally dynamic community. They have countless opportunities to explore their interests and to develop their skills.

    We focus huge attention upon each individual whilst ensuring a vibrant and inclusive School. 


    Pupils can choose to study the world-renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma (IBDP), A Levels or BTEC at Sixth Form. In the Prep School, a broad curriculum is delivered that supports the development of independent learning, skills, curiosity and creativity, alongside subject-specific rigour. 

    Boarding from age 7

    Rossall provides 24-hour care to enable pupils to settle into life at a boarding school in a new country.

    For younger pupils (aged 7-13) there is a dedicated Junior boarding house and for senior students (aged 13-18), there are seven senior boarding houses (four boys houses and three girls houses). Each has a home-from-home family atmosphere and a team of residential staff on hand, including houseparents, deputy houseparents and a matron. All houses have a mix of nationalities, as well as a high intake of British day pupils. Junior boarders enjoy a fun-packed supervised weekend activity programme, whilst senior boarders are actively encouraged to join the extra-curricular programme during the week and at weekends.
