Rossall School is one of the country’s leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools, in a picturesque and historic setting on the Lancashire coastline. Pupils enjoy learning and living in a friendly, busy and challenging community both within the classroom, after school and at weekends.
Grounded by the traditional British education, all pupils have the opportunity to develop friendships with others from around the world. Pupils can choose to study the world-renowned International Baccalaureate Diploma or A-levels at Sixth Form.
The spacious campus has extensive sports and recreation facilities which include a 25-metre indoor heated swimming pool, squash courts, tennis courts, fives courts, a modern all-weather sports pitch, a muli-use games area, two indoor sports halls, extensive sports pitches and a fitness room. For younger pupils (aged 7–13) there is a dedicated Junior Boarding House which has a home-from-home family atmosphere. Fylde Coast pupils enjoyed a ‘Gliorified’ lesson in children’s literature when one of the country’s most exciting authors of young children’s books dropped in for a chat at one of the area’s leading independent schools. Rossall School paceman, Luke Williams, has been bowled over by the Australian cricket authorities, who have extended an invitation to the Thornton Cleveleys youngster to spend a season with one of the Country’s top sides. In the semi-final against Blackpool Sixth Form Rossall were strong and by half time were 27-6 up.
Juggling study and a career in the entertainment industry is child’s play for Rossall School pupil, Thomas Senior, who, at the tender age of 16, has launched a web-based business to generate bookings for his unique, bounce-juggling stage act. One of the North West’s leading school choirs has been offered an opportunity to perform in Westminster Abbey in 2012, and it was a performance 3,000 miles away in the US capital, Washington DC, that helped seal the date. Boarding school headmaster, Dr Stephen Winkley, has received a Lifetime Achievement Award for his services to education, in the prestigious Independent School Awards 2011. A visit to a large Fylde Coast campus by a leading children’s author generated a real buzz for pupils of Rossall, Larkholme, Shakespeare and Baines Endowed schools, who had gathered for a reading and book signing session. ROSSALL MAINTAINS GCSE PERFORMANCE Rossall School, Fleetwood, has increased its overall percentage for GCSE passes this year to a near perfect 99.5% for A*-G grades and also recorded a rise in A* grade passes over the 2010 figure. A talented footballer, Oliver was already playing in the youth team of German Bundesliga club, Eintracht Frankfurt and had the world at his feet.  However, he freely admits that sport had dominated his life, to the detriment of academic study, until he came to Rossall where he found balance and discovered that he really could excel academically as well as on the sports field.
Oliver has been so successful at Rossall that he has been appointed School Captain and is the first German to have held the position. It was the warmth and friendliness of Rossall School that helped make the choice of school easier for middle school pupil, Janine Schofield.  Luckily, her parents made her part of the decision making process when choosing a school and three years on, she is delighted that her initial feelings were considered. At fourteen years old, Anchor House pupil, Janine is in her last year of middle school and is thinking of senior school, GCSE’s, Sixth Form and beyond.  She admits to being a little diffident when she first attended the school but boarding has given her much more confidence and a feeling of camaraderie that was missing previously from her school life. The gifted youngster from Tarvin, near Chester is also developing as a musician and has reached grade 4 in both piano and clarinet.  This, combined with her achievements in Art, DT and Maths perhaps indicate a creative path for Janine.


We run a series of Open Days throughout the year and these are an excellent way to get a flavour of life at Rossall. If you are planning to attend one of our Open Days, it is helpful if you notify us in advance. Established in 1525, the School is located in an in an area of outstanding beauty in the small, safe but vibrant market town of Sedbergh. Sedbergh School operates a bespoke series of summer courses in a range of sports and activities and a first-class International Summer School. The Preparatory School is located in the nearby village of Casterton, a 15-minute drive from Sedbergh. Both Schools benefit from excellent road and rail links, with Manchester and Liverpool International Airports only 90 minutes away.
Pupils benefit from a meticulous tutoring system alongside first-class teaching, resulting in almost 100% pass rates at A-level and IGCSE.
Sedbergh offers a wide range of opportunities beyond the classroom, and provides a happy and caring environment for all its pupils, whether their achievements are academic, sporting, musical or artistic. Scholarships are available at 7+, 9+, 11+, 13+ and 16+ for academic and all-round excellence, as well as recognising outstanding talent in music, sport, drama, and design and technology. Scholarships are available at 7+, 9+, 11+, 13+ and 16+ in sport, music, drama, design and technology, all-rounders, and academic.
Sedbergh International Summer School 2016 is now in full swing with 55 students from 15 different countries arriving last Sunday at our new ISS location in Casterton at the Prep School. It’s been another very busy week here at Sedbergh for the start of the final half term of the academic year.
Earlier today I spent some time with Katy de la Riviere, the School’s archivist, and what a treasure trove of information she is!
Our School offers places on the basis of an interview with the Headmaster for younger children (we would also request a written report from the child’s current school) and Academic Assessments are held for pupils aged ten-13. Amidst striking architecture, on a generous 160-acre campus, boys and girls aged 2–18 are nurtured in a safe, secure and supportive environment. The sense of community that defines the School is achieved largely through the unrivalled standard of pastoral care, by the diverse pupil base and also by the permanent boarding population.
Growing and learning in such a friendly and culturally diverse environment helps the young people develop into the well-rounded, confident and knowledgeable individuals that are typical of Rossall School. The Junior School is accredited to teach the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme.
Rossall is also proud to be one of the few schools in the country with an on-site Astronomy Centre.


Junior boarding activities involve weekend trips to the local town accompanied by a house tutor, as well as fun off-site excursions such as go-karting, swimming, trips to the cinema, shopping, boating and visiting theme parks, etc. Fylde Coast co-educational, Rossall School has invested heavily in new facilities on its Fleetwood campus to accommodate the growing number of new pupils wishing to register. If you are not able to visit us on an Open Day, please do feel free to arrange a private visit on a day to suit your family’s schedule. It is one of the few remaining full boarding schools in the UK with 97% of pupils boarding seven days a week. It provides a first-rate education for boys and girls from age 4, and offers day, weekly and full boarding from the age of 8. Pupils can expect to go on to the university of their choice, and entry to Oxbridge and other Russell Group universities continues to be strong. It has an enviable reputation for music, drama, outdoor pursuits (making the most of the stunning location), and sport. Sixth Form pupils achieved the highest ever A*AB rate at 63 per cent, continuing a rising trend. Because we are a genuine boarding school we do not have Open days in the Senior School instead parents and their children are welcome to visit us at any time.
Paula Lopez was the top scorer with 21 points ably supported by Captain Jodie Finn with some excellent shooting and 17 points. With Saturday morning school and a full range of weekend activities, all taking place in truly outstanding facilities, boarders have many opportunities to develop and pursue a wide sphere of interests. Well, if you imagine outdoor rock climbing (up or down) but with water you will have the general idea.
I’m delighted to report that the current record was broken by our current Head of School, Johnny Campbell who took 2 seconds off the previous record.
We also encourage boys and girls to take advantage of a Taster, where they can experience the School first hand, staying overnight,  going to lessons and joining in games.
The School has retained its traditional values and ethos, providing an all-round education whilst facing the demands of the 21st century in terms of excellent teaching, facilities and an extensive extracurricular programme.
