Head PhotoThis must be the healthiest school in Britain! The sea air banishes asthma, eczema and hay fever and promotes complexions of which French beauticians would be envious. After forty years in the boarding business it still thrills me to meet the young people we look after. I walk about the school every day, because the joy of boarding schools is the chance to see the whole child: the highflying academic who has two left feet at football, the hopeless mathematician who is wonderful at cricket, the feeble rugby player who is brilliant on the saxophone, the flawless actor who doesn't understand physics, and the wide range of characters and nationalities who fill the days with surprise and excitement. Rossall offers day and boarding pupils an outstanding educational and social experience within a secure, supportive and picturesque environment. It is one of only a handful of schools to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme at junior school and the International Baccalaureate programme and 'A' levels at sixth form. 95% of our graduates go on to University with excellent success for Oxbridge applicants. Children who board find their feet quickly on our friendly campus benefiting from an extensive extra-curricular programme and excellent on site facilities. These include newly refurbished boarding houses, a state of the art ICT centre, a performing arts theatre, a purpose built Astronomy centre, a 25 metre swimming pool, a gymnasium, squash and fives courts, an Astroturf pitch and extensive playing fields. At Rossall we are proud of our sporting traditions and achievements in Hockey, Rugby, Cricket, Fives and many more sports. Rossall also boasts its own unique game, Ross Hockey, which is played on the beach next to the school. Equally important are the arts and a wide range of activities which are an integral part of Rossall life. These include, Drama, music, a combined cadet force, chess, history and riding clubs to name but a few. "The best is only just good enough for our children", said a famous Victorian Headmaster, and the best is what we seek to offer. Rossall is a broad church: it has some of the cleverest pupils I have ever met, and some whose achievement of six good GCSE passes is a real triumph. But above all it is a community. The richness of a good community is an enormous gift to a growing child. Join it and see for yourself!
