Founded in 1844, Rossall is a co-educational boarding and day school with an illustrious history and a clear strategic vision for the future. The School provides a unique educational experience underpinned by a strong commitment to academic excellence and cocurricular participation. Successive generations of Rossallians have made a profound impact in fields as diverse as medicine, music, politics and technology. The appointment of Jeremy Quartermain as the seventeenth Headmaster of Rossall School has heralded a sustained focus upon the academic life of the School and, since 2016, pupil numbers have grown by over 15%. The appointment of a Deputy Head of Teaching and Learning and the opening of the new centre for Innovation and Excellence in Learning are reflective of the School’s commitment to ensuring that Rossall is recognised regionally and nationally for the quality of its CPD programme. Additionally, the establishment of a Leadership Academy is reflective of the growing number of aspirant practitioners who have resolved to forge their careers at Rossall.
We strive to develop in our pupils a lifelong love of learning, a sense of moral purpose, and a belief in their own power to do good in the world. We prepare them to lead successful personal lives and productive professional lives. We have the highest aspirations for our boys and girls and as an IB World School we endeavour to ensure that our pupils are intellectual risk-takers, open-minded and persuasive communicators. Rossall is an inclusive and diverse School community with a roughly even split between day pupils and those whom board. The internationally-minded nature of the School is as defining an aspect as its architectural beauty and fascinating history. The School is embarking upon a significant development programme which includes the refurbishment and reconfiguration of our Science Department and an ambitions 1:1 Mobile Learning Project. Alongside the introduction of horizontal tutoring and Year Group Heads, the School is also set to open a Sixth Form Study Centre and brand new Learning Development Department with state-of-the-art facilities. The School’s site extends to 160 acres and affords plenty of scope for outdoor learning.
