Blackpool leads the way with new child development centre
The result was a fantastic adaptation on the classic tale, making it accessible to children, as well as adults. There they met the other ticket winners played by Myles Davies, Morgan Wallace, Kimberley Bradley and Alex Kretov and a host of colourful characters including, of course, the Oompa Loompas. As the ticket winners started to slowly disappear in very strange circumstances, it became apparent that Charlie Bucket had won so much more than just a Golden Ticket.
All the cast and crew involved staged a hugely entertaining production. The students had chosen and edited the script themselves, rehearsed tirelessly, and designed the set and costume for this ambitious production.
Unsure as to which brother is the father of her baby, and learning to live in a house with her new parents-in-law Sam Pellowe and Jessica Levertensions understandably rise. Throw a perpetually drunk Grandma Sallie-Anne Storm-Eckersley and a nosy neighbour Teng Teng Wong into the mix and all the ingredients were there for an evening of enjoyable entertainment.

Pupils took part in a fortnight of fundraising and physical challenges to raise cash for Christian Aid, including running across a mud filled obstacle course, playing human Hungry Hippos and blindfolded netball as part of the Challenge, organised by School Chaplain, Revd.
The Challenge, which was an annual event at the school for many years, was revived by Revd. They were determined to reach their fundraising target and perhaps most importantly, have lots of fun doing it!
Ellie was inspired to take on this challenge by her Grandad, who was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer in July last year. Trinity Hospice and Brian House provide care for adults and children suffering from terminal illnesses, but rely on donations to keep their services going. To help them raise money, our students pushed a hospice bed for the full 10k from Gynn Square to Blackpool Pleasure Beachcompleting the course in a time of 1 hour 9 minutes.
Fifty staff and students took turns to push the bed along the race route, reviving a tradition started by nurses and volunteers from the hospice. A big thank you goes to our Rossall Runners: Rossall children have also written postcards with good wishes and kind blessings to all the children receiving our old uniform.
With the help of many enthusiastic junior pupils and senior students, all the clothing and sportswear has now been sorted, filling a staggering 40 large boxes in the process! Rules for the four and half hour silence were simple - no talking except for stating your attendance or asking to go to the bathroom.

There is still time to donate any of the old Rossall uniform you may have. The school achieved a 96 per cent pass rate, with per cent of our students gaining passes in Chemistry, Computing, English Literature and Geography. The results mean almost all Rossall students secured their preferred university places, and will be taking up studies at institutions including Cambridge, Manchester and York. Studying at Rossall has pushed me to a higher level and given me the opportunities to do things I would not normally have done.
I just want to thank him and all the staff for helping me to achieve the results I need to do it! Ms Purves, Head at Rossall said: She now plans to study Psychology at the University of Surrey. It is wonderful to see their efforts rewarded, and we are looking forward to welcoming them back to continue their studies in the Sixth Form at Rossall. Trying to fit my studies in with my training schedule has been tough, but the staff at Rossall have been great and given me lots of help outside school hours.
From the beautiful morning May sunshine right through to the delicious food, the Prize Day and Graduation was a glorious event.
Colvin RoseCaroline Hardt RoseGrace The day created memories for many, allowing our school leavers the opportunity to reflect and celebrate on their time at Rossall and families the chance to celebrate achievements. The celebrations concluded with a magnificent lunch enjoyed in the stunning sunshine. Unfortunately, blustery conditions forced us inside but we still had a great time!
The hugely close year group had a fantastic evening toasting their time at Rossall with fellow students, their families, staff and tutors. Disco and dancing followed the sumptuous meal, before they were whisked off before the clock struck midnight to continue the celebrations at a local bar.
A huge thank you must go to the Friends of Rossall for organising the event and Year 12 photography student, Natahsa Maycock for taking the photographs. Held at The Village Hotel in Blackpool, the students enjoyed an evening of fine food, dancing and awards. Guests were also treated to a flute duet by Year 6 students Jessica Sanderson and Suzanne Carter, accompanied on the piano by Connie Lupton.
Congratulations to Junior School Captains: The lunch, a hotly anticipated affair and a Rossall tradition to mark the end of term, never fails to impress. For the seaside theme the staff dressed as Victorian beach bathers, lifeguards and even a hotdog for the celebration, which included a special themed lunch of fish and chips, candy floss and ice cream, all topped by a spectacular four foot chocolate cake in the shape of Blackpool Tower.
Our catering staff really captured the seaside spirit of Rossall this year and the spectacular chocolate Blackpool Tower received a fantastic reception from the pupils.
My favourite memories are of my time in Junior School. In Years Five and Six, I was part of a team of rugby players who became one of the most successful junior squads at Rossall. Winning the Rossall Budge Sevens tournament two years running and the prestigious Malsis tournament meant we became a side which challenged the best. When I was awarded the role of Junior School Captain it was like all my dreams had come true — especially as both of my brothers had tried and failed to win this coveted role!
Since Junior School I had always dreamt of seeing my name on that list underneath the archway. To have this opportunity is something of an honour, and became one of my proudest moments as a Rossallian. Rossall is unique, and students and staff alike create a society full of imaginative, sporty, musical, academic individuals who all contribute to the wider community. I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to be a part of a school which is truly one of a kind.
I will to go on to Edge Hill University to study Primary School Education, where I hope to learn what it takes to be a good teacher, although I feel that many of those characteristics have already been instilled in me by the teachers and atmosphere here at Rossall!
The school is about so much more than studying and sport: Rossall succeeds in changing boys and girls into mature adults who are ready to move on to the next chapter in their lives.
It is a place where you are welcome, whether you are there for sixteen years, or two years, and somewhere which develops your studies, but perhaps more importantly, creates a distinctive individual. My answer has always received the same reaction: And indeed I have, from all the fun of Junior School, where I won various rugby tournaments, to finishing and reflecting on my time at the most recent Prize day. A Rossallian is someone who has a stamp imprinted onto them, and I know wherever I am, Edge Hill, or later on in life in my own classroom, Rossall will always be a part of me.
The continued support of the school has helped me to endeavour to achieve to the best of my ability. They fought valiantly, with Philip Wilkinson and Harry Bennett shooting some excellent goals. Ultimately, the girls stole yet another victory from the boys, winning 11 goals to 8. In the first innings, Alice Hellewell opened the match with the first rounder which was quickly followed with rounders from Melissa Pilley, Grace Evans and Suzanne Carter.
Rossall had a strong fielding team to stump St Pius out and at the end of the first innings the scores were 7 rounders to Rossall and 5 to St Pius.
In the second innings, Melissa Pilley did a hard hit and with great tactics and good team support, Alice Hellewell did some super hits along with Grace Evans and Ellie Qualter. In the end the final score was 19 rounders to Rossall and 10 to St Pius. Our sporting calendar finished in spectacular style with the Under 11 Girls playing in an extremely enjoyable football fixture against Sacred Heart.
It was wonderful to see so many children taking part in their first competitive match and displaying a fine array of skills. However, Highfield Priory had a strong bowling attack and two wickets were taken, resulting in 10 runs being deducted.
The second pairing of Yemi Ajiteru and Daniel Eaves continued confidently and ran some quick singles to score eleven with the loss of one wicket. Charlie Gotto and Emerson Porter then came to the crease for their very first time in a hardball match and showed a lot of potential, playing a fine array of shots and scoring 7 runs. The final pairing of Steffan van Blerk and Alex Kirkwood started extremely well and both players hit boundaries with well-timed shots.
After their four overs, they had amassed 31 runs, bringing the Rossall total to an impressive 79 runs. In response, Rossall bowled with wonderful pace and accuracy and the support for one another in the field was superb. Highfield batted impressively and the Rossall attack needed to be at their best to minimise the opposition score. Highfield batted well and amassed a total of 60 runs after their 16 overs; 19 runs less than Rossall.
This was a fine victory and the perfect introduction to the season for the team. The Under 9 Rounders team were excited to welcome Sedbergh for their very first rounders match of the season. Chloe Southall captained the team and Rossall were put into bat first. Rossall made a great start, with many of their batters scoring half and even full rounders. However, Rossall continued to play some great rounders and felt confident after the first innings.
In the second innings, Rossall fielded very well and all players tried hard to stop Sedbergh from scoring.
Some excellent catches were made by the girls and at the end of the match Rossall were declared the winners with a score of 15 rounders to 8! It proved to be a successful day and all the athletes seemed to thoroughly enjoy the experience. All the children in Year 3 and 4 were so excited to welcome children from Sacred Heart to Rossall for an afternoon of cricket.
Rossall were delighted to pick up two gold medals Rossall played five matches in six-a-side teams and all children had a chance to bat, bowl and field. After two races, Steffan van Blerk won the hurdles with ease to pick up a gold medal. Well done to all children who took part. In the annual fixture against Marylebone Cricket Club, Bradley Gosling was a superb batsman, scoring a very good 70 and taking three wickets.
Over runs were scored on the day, however, the expertise of the MCC players proved too great and Rossall were eventually defeated by 60 runs. To finish the season, the boys enjoyed a trip to Edinburgh to compete in the Edinburgh Cricket Festival. The Under 14s produced some superb performances over the season led by Charlie Ardron and Josh Hamnett.
Jack Kenmare bowled tight lines and took wickets, along with Will Hockings. Beating local rivals AKS by 10 wickets was certainly a performance to remember, along with their excellent victory over Stonyhurst by a staggering 76 runs.
The Under 13s have had a sensational season, going undefeated in all their weekend fixtures and reaching the quarter finals in the Regional Cup. They were aptly named Team of Year at the Junior Sports Awards for not only winning 8 out of their 9 fixtures but for the way in which the boys conducted themselves on the field. As a team, the boys were always encouraging one another and sharing around the duties, involving all players in the games.
Charlie Clark batted well over the season, as did Captain Lewis Haworth. Scott Whittaker and Joey Warwick were excellent with the ball. Rossall have enjoyed hosting many Rounders matches and tournaments this season, including the annual Wyre and Fylde Rounders Tournaments which welcomes over 10 schools to our rounders pitches. After winning the tournament, the girls were selected to represent Wyre and Fylde at the Lancashire School Games.
Unfortunately, the girls were knocked out in the quarter finals. However, the girls should be very proud of what they have achieved this season. Daisy Newsham showed good control as the bowler. Louisa Rogerson was composed on 1st based and Grace Gordon was dynamic in the field.
The Under 12s had a fantastic season, losing only one game. The highlight of the season was being crowned district champions at the Wyre and Fylde Rounders Tournament. Led by Morgan Wallace, the girls worked well as a team to apply pressure to the opposition. Ellie Braidford and Meagan Baxendale deserve special mentions for excellent play.
Blackpool nursery 'devastated' to be closing
Throughout the day, there were a number of seasonal and personal bests scored both on the track and field. Windson Pereira beat the district record in the m running a fantastic Wizaso Chavula Year 9 ran hard in the heats and the finals to come 2nd in the m and Sam Currie Year 9 came first in the Junior Pole Vault competition.

Isabelle received the award for first place overall in the m competition. This event was judged on an individual basis and Rossall had some extremely good results. Ashya Colvin Year 12 won gold in both the m and the m at the Lancashire Athletics Championships.
Despite heavy rain the day before, the stunning but challenging Radley course provided a stern challenge for all golfers. The second team of George Evans and Michael Mellon were placed 17th. Both teams should be pleased with their performances in what was a high quality field. Please note a later finishing time of 9.
