We are extremely fortunate to have such an excellent on-site Medical Centre. Staffed by Two Registered Nurses, with a daily surgery with the School doctor, students, staff and visitors to the School are able to access medical advice or treatment throughout the School day.
Our Medical Centre also provides links to further specialists as required, for example counselling services or physiotherapy.
The nursing team liaise closely with the Houseparents and pastoral teams.
Parents are very welcome to call the Medical Centre if they would like to talk to one of the School Medical Team.

Looking after the well-being of the pupils in our care is of the highest importance - we want our pupils to be healthy and balanced individuals physically spiritually and emotionally.
All of our non-EU international students have a nominated guardian in the UK. Guardians are arranged before students come to Rossall and are normally arranged with the help of an agent.
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.
