Rossall is one of the UK’s top co-educational day and boarding schools located on the picturesque coastland of North West England in Fleetwood, in the Wyre district of Lancashire 2 miles (3.2 km) north of Blackpool and less than an hour from Manchester and Liverpool. Providing a unique educational experience we offer a wide ranging choice of curriculums underpinned by a commitment to academic excellence. We have been producing successful, well rounded young people since 1844, so you can rest assured your son or daughter is in safe hands. Sports, the Arts and Activities form three of the four cornerstones of the Rossall School education experience.
Rossall is situated in the small fishing village/town of Fleetwood. Rossall is less than an hour from Manchester and Liverpool’s international airports, and enjoys excellent road, rail and air transport links with the rest of the country.
The North West region of Britain is steeped in cultural and natural heritage, with the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales National Parks close by. Closer to home, the small town of Cleveleys and Poulton are nearby and include banks, food shops, clothes shops, entertainment stores, restaurants and a cinema complex. The larger holiday resort of Blackpool, is a 10 minute tram ride away.
In general, temperatures in Lancashire are only one – two degrees centigrade cooler than the South of England. Our coastal position, however, does mean that Rossall is subjected to a rather windy climate during the winter months.
Over the last six years Rossall has made a substantial investment into the refurbishment and improvement of the facilities on campus. Refurbishment work continues on the boarding houses as part of a rolling programme with the completion of a total refurbishment of Dolphin House in June 2006.
Rossall’s origins as a boarding school can be traced back to its inception in 1844. Today we continue to offer a safe and supportive home-from-home to pupils from far and wide from Middle School upwards.
One of the great things about boarding at Rossall is the flexibility of boarding options on offer. Dependent on your individual circumstances and requirements you can choose to be either a Full Boarder or a Weekly Boarder or a Flexi Boarder. A Full Boarder lives on campus throughout the week and at weekends during term time.
A typical Weekly Border lives on campus five days a week during term but returns home at the weekends. Weekly boarding can offer an ideal solution for many families, who may find that their time is totally committed during the week. Weekly boarders benefit from all of the facilities and activities of our day and full boarding students and can take full advantage of the extra-curricular activities on offer, and students are supported with their homework and music practice.
