Games & The Arts

Pastoral Care

On entering the school, every pupil is allocated a tutor or, in the case of the juniors, a class teacher. The tutor or class teacher plays a vital role in overseeing and promoting the positive progress of the pupils in their care, and is usually the first point of contact for parents if they have a query or concern that they would like to raise.

University Places

University destinations 2016 included Cambridge University and many Russell Group universities.

Head Teacher’s Philosophy

Rossall is very much a holistic experience – through our diverse range of extra-curricular activities and vibrant mix of students, coupled with opportunities to challenge and explore, we manage to develop in our students that most prized of gifts: character. Our students are exceptional; the spirit and character developed during their time here will take them far.
