The time at Rossall is merely a springboard to the rest of one’s life so it is vitally important to spend time exploring and considering the best route to take.
At Sixth Form level, Rossall offers the very best of two worlds - the traditional A Level route and the International Baccalaureate Diploma.
As part of our enrichment programme and commitment to expanding horizons, we run a varied and engaging series of lectures, talks and presentations throughout the year.
