Welcome from the School Captain
Here at Rossall we are extremely privileged to have access to a wide range of extra curriculum activities. The saying that many Rossallians quote is, “Rossall will be what you make it”, and with such a host of opportunities available, you can nurture an existing passion or start something completely new. Before long, the new activity or activities will become your favourite thing to do. From my own experience, I had never played cricket before I joined Rossall in the Junior School, and now, I am honoured to say that I have played for my district club and the Rossall 1st XI Team. Rossall is truly a global village – we work, play, live and train with students from around the world. These friendships are known to last a lifetime and open up so many new experiences.
Rossall is also has the oldest Combined Cadet Forces in the United Kingdom. As a member not only will you gain knowledge of the Navy, Army or RAF, you will further develop your leadership and team building skills, crucial to your future pathway and education beyond school.
Rossall School prides itself on its long standing traditions; from its ever-competitive inter house sport competitions to musical extravaganzas such as House Singing, held annually at the Grand Theatre. These beloved traditions shape your time at Rossall and create so many fond memories. With such an abundance of nationalities within the school community, it would be rare for you not to learn about different cultures – the diversity is hugely rewarding.
The beauty of Rossall is that there are so many opportunities and possibilities open to you – nowhere else would you enjoy playing RossHockey on the beach with your friends or singing the Twelve Days of Christmas, competitively I might add, in the Dining Hall with your housemates.
The simple traditions, the cultural knowledge gained and the host of activities available are what makes Rossall the unique and irreplaceable school it is today.
