I am delighted to welcome you to Rossall Pre-Prep. This is a school community bound together by friendship, fun and the absolute joy of learning together. It is our responsibility to help children take the first steps on their educational journey. We do so in an environment that is pastorally nurturing and educationally supportive. 

Our emphasis is upon creativity, exploration and developing initial skills in terms of maths, language and literacy. Our curriculum is diverse and exciting and it is designed to challenge, motivate and inspire children to find out more about the world around them. 

We nurture children so that they grow and develop into confident, independent and resilient young learners, excited to tackle new challenges and keen to build on their skills as they move into Prep School and beyond.

Thanks to Rossall Reception Readiness sessions in Nursery, children move up to the Pre-Prep School already feeling familiar with the environment and class teacher. Children joining at Reception meet their classmates ahead of the beginning of term and, by the end of the first week, it is as if they have all known each other forever.

Our teachers and curriculum promote and nurture the fundamental stages of each pupil’s development through child-led exploration and play. Elements of structured learning are introduced gradually, putting in place the building blocks that support future learning.

In Reception, we follow the Early Years Foundation Stage programme, alongside Rossall’s own enhanced curriculum. Our teachers develop Early Learning Goals specific to each individual child. All of this occurs within our wonderfully designed classrooms and inspiring natural environment.

Benefits include:

  • Separate, secure outdoor play facilities
  • Beach and woodland areas that provide adventure and fun
  • Access to the swimming pool for lessons
  • Rossall’s own bespoke Pre-Prep Curriculum

YEAR 1 & 2 

From the age of five upwards, the Rossall Pre-Prep Curriculum serves to support the continuing development of independent learning skills, curiosity and creativity. Alongside this is a focus upon subject specific progress. 

The Pre-Prep curriculum offers all pupils the opportunity to develop their skills, knowledge and understanding. It provides a secure foundation for success within our Prep School, Senior School and beyond. 

The move towards a more formal classroom setting is gentle and gradual. Pupils embrace the opportunities that ‘grown up’ classrooms provide while they are still able to revert to simply playing. Pupils across Year 1 and Year 2 join in with a variety of exciting events linked to the Prep School.

  • Bespoke, broad and challenging curriculum
  • Small class sizes
  • Rossall Rotation gives pupils opportunities for:
    •  Cooking
    • Coding
    • Farm skills
    • Baking
    • Astronomy
    • Beach and woodland school
  • Wrap-around care
  • Activities programme

We also create opportunities for parental involvement in your child’s educational journey, such as celebrating significant milestones and determining areas to focus on.

“All Preparatory pupils demonstrate excellent attitudes towards their learning. They work collaboratively as well as individually. They are inquisitive, highly motivated and display curiosity about the world beyond the classroom. They achieve well because the Prep School curriculum enables them to take responsibility for their own learning and they relish the opportunity to do so.”
