Our historic Sumner Library is a serene and beautifully functional space at the heart of the school campus within easy striking distance of the academic departments and all the boarding houses.
The library is well stocked with fiction, non-fiction and reference books as well as being fully equipped with wifi access and a computer suite.
Students and staff have access to the library throughout the school day, each evening during prep time and over the weekends at specific opening times. It is an excellent location for research, reading or private study.
The school librarians run a variety of book-based events and the space also hosts the regular Farrell Society gatherings and literary evenings.
A school’s curriculum goes to the very heart of education, defining not only what our pupils experience and enjoy whilst they are here at Rossall, but also defining what they take away in terms of like skills, values, qualifications and passions.
