Rossall School, Lancashire:
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, Wyre district in Lancashire, near Blackpool and an hour from Manchester and Liverpool. Providing a unique educational experience we offer a wide choice of curriculums underpinned by a commitment to academic excellence. We have been producing successful, well rounded young people since 1844. Sports, the Arts and Activities form the cornerstones of the Rossall School education. Our pupils have the opportunity to take part in each of these areas and we believe that this helps to develop the well-rounded young people that characterize Rossall pupils from boys and girls educated elsewhere. Your children will receive the best in pastoral care and support every day helping them to settle in. 95% of graduates attend top universities in the UK and we maintain an excellent record of success at the prestigious Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Rossall is committed to providing first-class Nursery provision from the age of two, in the strongly held belief that even the youngest children derive a very real advantage from the structured and varied programme on offer. We are open 50 weeks of the year and attendance can usually be arranged to fit each family's individual requirements. When your child is ready to move up to the Infants, you will be comforted to know that the transition from Nursery will be a lot easier than you think. This is because Rossall Infants is situated in the same building as the Nursery School and run by the same staff, allowing your son or daughter to accustom themselves to the next stage of their education in familiar surroundings with the teachers they are used to.
Situated in the heart of the campus, next to 150 acres of playing fields, our Infant School shares the same site as our Nursery School. Our Infant School pupils are nurtured in a happy, structured environment, with separate classrooms, playgrounds and facilities helping them prepare for Junior School.
It’s in the early years that children develop their first, all-important perspectives on the educational process and – crucially – this experience forms the basis for their approach to future learning. By fostering positive attitudes towards every aspect of school life, we encourage our very youngest students to acquire an appetite for learning that will grow and mature as they progress through the school towards the fulfilment of their own ambitions and aspirations.
Whilst many of the children in Rossall’s Junior School progress logically from Infants, some also transfer from their local state school to enjoy the excellent advantages of life, learning and leisure on this exemplary campus.
In January 2007, Rossall Nursery, Infant and Junior School successfully applied to become an official candidate school of the Primary Years Programme. The Primary Years Programme (PYP) is an international curriculum framework designed for young learners aged 3-11 years old. Over 450 schools world wide are currently authorised to teach this Programme, which is developed and regulated by the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO).
The PYP is an education-for-life programme designed to foster the development of the whole child, not just in the classroom but also through all means of learning. The programme focuses not only on academic development but also on social, physical, emotional and cultural needs too.
Your son or daughter will be taught through an inquiry based curriculum, carefully planned in accordance with the IBO’s guidelines. Consideration is also given to national curriculum guidelines.The PYP requires teachers to collaboratively plan units of inquiry for each age group around six important themes.
