Welcome from the School Captains
It is a privilege to welcome you to Rossall School and to articulate to you all the opportunities Rossall has to offer.
Rossall’s unique house system is fundamental in facilitating a close-knit community amongst all students of all ages and nationalities. Various inter-house competitions that include sport, music and other more novel events such as our ‘Chaplain’s Challenge’ which debuted last year encourages students to form close bonds with each other. This partnered with Rossall’s effective mentor system ensures new students feel welcome in their surroundings, as well as allowing the younger pupils to have positions of responsibility within the school.
Alongside offering a range of academic courses including A-Level and IB options, Rossall encourages students to participate in a myriad of sporting disciplines. These include traditional sports such as Football, Rugby, Hockey and Netball; however there are also less conventional sports available to take part in such as fives and our very own Rosshockey which is played on the beach.
Music attributes to much of the school’s enrichment opportunities and we are very proud to have an accomplished chapel choir capable of performing at venues such as Westminster Abbey and the Whitehouse to name a few. In cohesion with the school’s musical prowess, there are also a number of drama productions each year that provide further opportunities which allow students to excel in confidence and ability. We also take pride in having the oldest Combined Cadet Force in the country.
Having recently become a member of the Round Square group of schools, Rossall will now face the exciting prospect of becoming part of a wider international community. This development, partnered with an increasing number of trips useful in enhancing pupils’ understanding, demonstrates the schools commitment to maximising every students’ potential in what is a positive and supportive environment.
Lauren and Hal
One of the greatest advantages of a school like Rossall is the holistic learning experience afforded by a rich and varied extra-curricular programme.
The House System sits at the heart of our tutorial structure at Rossall and becomes a very important element of school life in terms of community, identity, pastoral and academic support.
Rossall is a place to inspire strong emotions. Shaped by its coastal location, it encourages a spirit of curiosity and adventure. Surrounded by stunning architecture, it generates an atmosphere of calm and tradition.
