Welcome from the School Captains
The perfect blend of tradition and modern invitation, Rossall school provides a friendly and inclusive environment for any child wanting to make the most out of their education. The academic side of Rossall excels in all areas with an outstanding teaching team, superb exam results and ambitious goals for the future. However academic performance is only one part of what makes the Rossall school and community one of the best in the country. Our school has a very close and welcoming atmosphere which is apparent from the moment you step onto campus; this provides a safe, stable and comforting family-feel to help guide you through what can be some of the most stressful times.
The level of consideration and care that teachers, pupils and especially house parents provide here at Rossall is astounding, everyone genuinely wants you to succeed and will do their utmost to help you get where you want to be. This is reflected in the lengths staff go to in order to help pupils achieve their goals, with extra-curricular support and clubs/societies to further your knowledge, an Oxbridge coordinator and other resources, we always have the opportunity to improve and achieve our goals. In terms of extracurricular Rossall offers a wide variety of clubs and societies to involve yourself in. Such extracurriculars are MedSoc, Amnesty International and even various musical endeavours. So whether you’re an aspiring doctor, human-rights activist or an up-and-coming musical sensation, Rossall provides a place where you can explore your passions and dreams, or even the stars if you’re interested in attending any of the lectures at the Astronomy Centre. All this while still being able to achieve academic success.
We host many different cultures and nationalities, Rossall broadens perspective and allows young people to experience the diversity of life and nature that is found in the rest of the world. With students from across the globe and a multitude of languages to match, Rossall encourages understanding but most importantly creates bonds for life. These bonds will grow throughout your time here, helped by the strong house loyalty and events that take place which date back over 150 years, such as the notorious Twelve Days of Christmas Sing-Off in the dining hall or the annual House Singing competition taking place at auditoriums in Blackpool. This healthy mix of competition and fun creates passionate and keen pupils that are proud to be part of Rossall. When this passion becomes united in events such as the “Friday Night Lights” sport matches that all borders go to, it is clear to see how the Rossall Community unifies to support our fellow students. The House trips and celebrations create a home away from home for many of our borders along with our day students.
Sports is also heavily catered to at Rossall as we have the facilities to accommodate high-level sportsmen and women. The Elite Sports program offers opportunities to those to excel in their given fields. This has been shown by our successful Fleetwood Town football program, Golf Academy and team, hockey squad, not to mention the basketball and rugby teams that are pushing at being some of the best in England. This sporting side of Rossall is ever-growing, with our new, state-of-the-art sports centre being recently opened and a team of passionate and involved Sporting staff who go out of their way to drive Performance Sport Rossall. If elite performance is not your thing, are still plenty of casual sporting activities on hand; we offer a wide range of clubs which are a great way to learn and develop new relationships. The sport here is also closely intertwined with tradition and history, such as our unique school sport “RossHockey” alongside the Rossall fives courts, both are entertaining and are a reminder of the school’s great roots. These traditions also extend to the annual Inter-House Sporting matches which are greatly vied for.
Here at Rossall the inclusivity, the friendships and the overall experience are unforgettable; there’s never a dull moment no matter where you are or who you’re with. We as a community will support you throughout your time here and help you make the most out of all of the opportunities and experiences we offer, we truly want you to be the best you can be!
We hope to get the pleasure of meeting you soon,
Patrick & Zenith
