The food at Rossall is superb! Breakfast is a tempting array of cooked and fresh options accompanied by cereals, yogurts, muesli, fruits, juices and hot drinks. At lunchtime, there is even more choice with hot main dishes, a vegetarian option, pasta bar, baked potatoes, homemade soup and salad bar followed by a selection of desserts. In the evening, pupils enjoy a light supper in the Dining Hall, again with an element of choice in the sweet and savoury dishes.
In the Senior houses, students have access to snacks such as toast and fruit. The Juniors also enjoy some fruit and snacks at various points in the school day.
We are also very fortunate to have our own on-site café, Mondo’s. The café is open to Sixth Formers during the day but younger pupils can buy snacks there at break time such as bacon or sausage barms.
Former head, Dr Stephen Winkley, called Rossall ‘the healthiest school in Britain’ and with its coastal location, fresh sea air and enthusiastic approach to sport, it is easy to see why! We want our students to establish really healthy habits from an early age with an active lifestyle, enjoyment of good food and a good balance between work and play.
Amongst the tangible reasons for boarding are the excellent, modern student accommodation facilities for girls and boys.
Sport is seen as a key part of the Rossall all-rounder, a pupil who is competent in all areas of the curriculum, academically sound, emotionally intelligent and physically fit.
