Rossall has been described as 'a warm, inclusive and remarkably happy place to be'.

Set on an historic 160 acre campus, Rossall is one of the country's leading independent co-educational boarding and day schools, where boys and girls aged 2–18 are nurtured in a safe, secure and supportive environment.

Rossall currently provides one of the broadest curriculum programmes available in the UK independent school market. Rossall Junior School is authorized to offer the IB Primary Years Programme whilst the senior school continues to follow the British National Curriculum culminating with GCSE/iGCSE examinations at the end of Year 11. In sixth form, pupils then have the choice to study either A levels or the globally recognised IB Diploma Programme.

Small class sizes and a rigorous tutorial system, ensures academic excellence, with 95% of Rossall pupils entering higher education, at universities around the world.

Rossall's enviable on-campus facilities include 150 acres of outdoor grassed sports pitches, floodlit all-weather surfaces, a gymnasium, heated indoor swimming pool, Fives courts, shooting range and a newly built Multi-Use-Games-Area. In 2016, Rossall opened its Golf Academy, boasting an indoor golf studio, equipped with the latest video analysis equipment and GC2 launch monitor/simulator, as well as an indoor putting lab. Rossall also has a Pentathlon Academy in association with Pentathlon GB, and a Football Academy, run by Fleetwood Town Football Club.

The school is also home to the Lawrence House Astronomy & Space Science Centre, the only centre of its kind in Britain, specialising in astronomy education.

In 2019, the school will see the completion of a brand new £4million Sports Centre.

A huge range of extracurricular activities are offered to all pupils throughout the school. Aside from a large number of successful sports teams, pupils can join everything from the world famous Chapel Choir to The Combined Cadet Force. The diverse range of clubs at Rossall ensures that there is something for everybody.

Admitting boarders as young as seven years old, Rossall's 'family structure' provides the framework for its exceptional standards of pastoral care. With major investments recently ploughed into its 8 boarding houses, each house is a well-equipped and comfortable home, which are in the process of being sensitively modernized to the highest standard.

Rossall School is a registered charity (No. 526685) that exists to provide education for children.
