What is The Rossall Foundation?

The Rossall Foundation is a registered charity and its purpose is to raise funds to assist the School’s development. Rossall School is grateful to the many generous benefactors since its existence. The support received has enabled the School to improve and create fantastic facilities and enhanced opportunities for current and future Rossallians from all backgrounds.

The School would simply not be what it is today without you. 

Celebrating The Past, Building For The Future

Our most iconic buildings date from the mid-nineteenth century. The Sumner Library, Big School and the Chapel of St John the Baptist are all listed buildings, noted for their architectural importance. Time has not stood still and these buildings are now in need of urgent repair.

Wind, rain and salt have exerted a toll on the physical fabric of our listed buildings. It is the case that crumbling masonry, corroded metal, rotten roof beams and leaking pipes threaten the very existence of our buildings.

Safeguarding the future of these buildings will cost well in excess of £1.5 million and this does not take into account the work that needs to be carried out in order to ensure that the Sumner Library becomes a modern study space within which children can work together collaboratively.

Similarly, it does not take into account the amount of work that needs to be accomplished in order to transform Big School into a flexible performance space capable of supporting our rapidly expanding performing arts programme. The purpose of this project is twofold: to preserve the past and to support the future.

Rossall 'Changing Lives' Bursary Programme

Widening Access, enabling opportunities.

A Rossall ‘Changing Lives’ Bursary provides means-tested bursaries, allowing a child to benefit from a Rossall Education which they otherwise would not be able to afford.

It is very important that Rossall is supporting the local community in ensuring bright, talented and ambitious children can be supported with a Rossall education. It is truly life-changing.

Rossall Alumni have been supporting local pupils in this way since the School was founded and it is very important we continue to support local children in this way.

Many of you reading this will personally understand how important this is and how life-changing it is to be able to enjoy the opportunities, teaching and support at Rossall. Help us change more lives! CLICK HERE to complete the online gift form or CLICK HERE to download a hard copy.

Annual Appeal

The Annual Appeal offers ORs and Parents the opportunity to contribute to projects and aspects of education which cannot be funded through the fees but will bring an immediate beneficial effect to school life.

The School’s aim is to provide outstanding facilities to enable the school to continue to provide the academic, sporting and cultural education that it does. But as in all walks of life, the finishing touches are so important. In the recent past, the Annual Fund has provided a weather station, Science equipment, defibrillators for the campus and essential Golf equipment for the Academy. All these items have been greatly received by the pupils and staff.

It’s all about making a difference now. The school has changed over the years but some things never change and that hopefully includes the generous support of those who have benefited from what Rossall offers.
