Institutions Profile

Location Lancashire, United Kingdom


Rossall combines the very best of a traditional British day and boarding school with a vibrant international community of students from around the world, which makes it a very special and exciting place to be. We have a long tradition of welcoming international students and a dedicated team of staff who are experienced in every aspect of educating overseas students.

It is no accident that the Rossall campus feels very much like an Oxford or Cambridge college – when the school was established over 170 years ago, the intention from the outset was to create an environment where pupils would embark on a seamless journey from school to some of the best universities in the country. That remains the ambition for our pupils and though times may have changed, our pupils still proceed to some of the most sought after colleges and universities around the world.

A Sixth Form education at Rossall is designed to stimulate and challenge in equal measure – we want our sixth formers to be intellectually curious, to be able to articulate and defend their opinions, to work both collaboratively and independently. We also want our sixth formers to establish great habits that they will take forward for the rest of their lives – independent study skills, engagement with healthy pursuits, a lifelong love of learning.

International students with an excellent level of English may be accepted for direct entry onto our full British curriculum programmes in senior school, including GCSE, A Level and IB.
