Leaving your country and your family to live in a foreign country with complete strangers is a brave choice, but it can also bring something very good to your life. Even though families in Ireland are very different from Italian ones, they are amazing too.
School DescriptionRossall School is a large, British private boarding school educating Senior and Sixth Form boys and girls since 1844. The school presents a challenging curriculum in a friendly, global community environment with over 50 nationalities represented. Academic offerings include a large selection of GCSE core subjects, over 25 A Level courses and the prestigious International Baccalaureate Diploma.
Set on an historic 160-acre campus along the magnificent Lancashire coastline, Rossall School is the only school in the UK with its own Space Science & Astronomy Centre. Other facilities of note are a brand-new cookery kitchen, a state-of-the-art Design Technology Studio, The Beecham Music School, The Performing Arts Studio and the Rossall Sports Centre. Its impressive Harry Potter-style dining hall was described by F.A.M Webster in his book, Our Great Public Schools, as "one of the most splendid in the country". Rossall School also features a gymnasium, an indoor heated swimming pool, a climbing wall, tennis and squash courts, shooting and archery ranges, an AstroTurf hockey pitch and a mile-long private beach.
Sports and Arts
Sport is seen as a key part of the Rossall all-rounder, a pupil who is competent in all areas of the curriculum, academically sound, emotionally intelligent and physically fit. A range of sporting activities exist for the keen sportswoman or sportsman but even if you are a recreational player or just want to have fun staying fit, there are plenty of opportunities to express yourself. The school offers membership in 64 clubs and societies. Drama is popular amongst all year groups and there are regular opportunities to perform in productions, sometimes linked in to the curriculum, such as the perennially creative Year 6 Shakespeare play. In the Senior School, there are regular drama productions which have recently included the West End hit, ‘Les Miserables’. The Art and Design departments provide a fantastic outlet for creative students- housed in beautifully light and airy rooms they feature the very latest in CAD and workshop equipment, including a 3D printer.
Dormitories and Student Life
Student housing at Rossall School has a warm, family-oriented vibe. There are cosy common areas, well-appointed bedrooms and contemporary shower rooms. Perfectly cared for by houseparents and tutors, young people find the dormitories a place to relax, study and make friends. These friendships can last a lifetime, open up so many new opportunities and allow you to experience new and exciting cultures through the people that you are surrounded by. The diversity of the school is virtually unrivalled by any other school in the area, and arguably in the whole of England.
