Rossall School

Co-educational Prep and Senior School
"Expanding Horizons.”

Rossall School, a co-educational Day and Boarding School for 2 – 18 year olds, was established in 1844 as sister school to Marlborough in Wiltshire, one of the great Victorian public schools, and was known affectionately as the “Eton of the North”.

Certainly, once you step through the gates of the 160 acre campus, you are walking into one of the finest independent school sites in the country; with its turreted archway, vast Harry Potter-esque dining hall, manicured quads and expansive playing fields, the school is reminiscent of an Oxbridge college. 

But this is most definitely not a school which is stuck in the past – innovation and a bold approach to learning mean that Rossall students can benefit from the very best educational approaches; in the Junior School, the pupils follow the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and in the Sixth Form the students can choose between the traditional A Level or prestigious IB Diploma Programme route. 

Fuse this educational innovation with the wonderful traditions which still prevail (house singing, Ross Hockey on the beach, Carols by Candlelight in the school’s magnificent Chapel, to name but a few) and you start to tune into the buzz of this place. Add in the central location delivering the healthiest yet most challenging of climates and the Rossall spirit really begins to make sense.
