What the school says...

Rossall Junior School offers your son or daughter the benefit of small class sizes, superb facilities and an extended day (if required) in a family-oriented co-educational environment. In addition, Rossall Juniors is enriched by a strong musical and sporting tradition with lots of extra-curricular musical activities and events and lots of sporting fixtures against local and national schools. No matter whether your child is sporting, artistic, musical or academic, we will bring out the best in them.

From the age of 7 upwards, your child also has the option to board in our Junior boarding unit, Anchor House, which caters for pupils from age 7-14, on a full, flexible or weekly basis. Currently 15% of our Junior School pupils make use of Anchor Boarding House and this number is growing. The majority of pupils in Junior School are day pupils with an increasing number taking advantage of our flexi and weekly boarding offer as and when required.
