Sign up for a ‘taste’ of our independent prep school in Cornwall


Are you considering an independent prep school in Cornwall as the next step for your son or daughter?

If yes, then you should definitely consider coming along soon to experience a ‘taste’ of the school day at Roselyon! While our website and prospectus will give you a flavour of life in our small and friendly school, spending time here will give you and your son or daughter a much better insight to our teaching, learning and school environment.

We tailor the taster completely to your needs: choose the subjects your child would most like to experience, and a time of day which means they can also enjoy a breaktime or lunchtime with us, and we will organise the rest.

Having visited, should you decide you would like to proceed with the admissions process we will arrange for your child to visit us for a day or two in the term before they join, in order to become more familiar with the surroundings and to make friends to play with in the holidays.

New minibus routes to Roselyon for North Cornwall families


Roselyon is delighted to announce two new minibus routes for families living in the north of the county.

The first will provide those in the Wadebridge area with access to Roselyon School on a route which travels in via Bodmin. The second is a new collection point at Cornwall Services on the A30, ideal for parents travelling to and from work on this route.

Head of Roselyon Hilary Mann said, “Our escorted minibus services from Bodmin, Liskeard and St. Austell have always been popular, so much so that we have added a second bus for our St. Austell families. Our recent move to Lanlivery means we are now more accessible if you live in the north of the county, with convenient stops where you can meet the bus on your way to work or from home, knowing that your child will be delivered safely to school.”

Churchtown Staff Reunion – can you help?


Roselyon School is planning a special event to bring together former staff of the Churchtown Farm and Activity Centre at Lanlivery.

Churchtown was operated first by Scope, then the Winged Fellowship Trust (later known as Vitalise), providing day services and holidays for young disabled people and youngsters with special educational needs. It closed in 2011 and was later purchased by Roselyon School, which moved to the site in September 2018.

Can you help us find the staff used to work on this wonderful site? We would love to be put in touch! The reunion party will be on Wednesday 30 January 2019 at the Churchtown site, which is now home to Roselyon School at Lanlivery. From 430pm until 6pm, guests are invited to join us for refreshments, a chance to look around and, of course, the opportunity to meet up with old friends and reminisce.

Please help us to spread the news – we are looking forward to meeting as many Churchtown staff as possible.

Background: In the 1970s Churchtown was a family run dairy farm and the residents of the village would often see the cows make their trek from field to farm. The farm was sold in 1975 to become an adventure and field studies centre for children with cerebral palsy working closely with schools. Churchtown went through many changes moving away from education and into leisure and being passed from Scope to the Winged Fellowship Trust (later known as Vitalise) in 2001. In 2011, Vitalise made the decision to pull out of Churchtown Farm. Scope temporarily stepped in but eventually the decision was made to close the site. Many of the external buildings were sold off leaving local residents and former staff worried the site would become housing. However, Churchtown’s rooms became full of life again when Roselyon School moved to the stunning site in 2018.
