On Saturday 23 March 2019, we warmly invite you to visit Roselyon and see for yourself what our independent prep school in Cornwall is really like.

At our first Open Morning in our new home in Lanlivery, there will be a range of activities both indoors and out, so you will have the chance to see our wonderful new classrooms and fabulous outdoor learning environment – complete with adventure activity centre, woodlands, lakelands, and even our resident pigs!

There will be lots to see and do including a singing masterclass, art and drama activities, and a demonstration from our champion fencing team. We will be showing off our outdoor learning opportunities and our activity challenge course will be officially opened! The Bird Lady of Fowey will also be attending with owls and hawks, and there will even be activities for the little ones, with a special insight into our weekly toddler group.

Staff, governors, parents and pupils will all be on hand to talk to you about what life is like at our amazing school, including our unique home education options.

Roselyon is widely recognised for producing outstanding educational results and these achievements have secured our position as the only ‘Sunday Times Top 100’ prep school in Cornwall in recent years. In our latest ISI Inspection, children’s attainment was rated ‘excellent’ and we are proud to have this confirmation that our children ‘attain notably high standards of literacy and numeracy, and have outstanding attitudes towards learning.’ Much of this success can be attributed to our small class size policy.

You can also find out more about our focus on outdoor learning, with Beach School, Woodland School, the numerous opportunities to learn on the farm adjacent to the school and a very broad range of outdoor co-curricular activities.

If you are looking for a prep school in Cornwall, do come along and see us on 23 March between 1oam and 12 noon. There is plenty of free parking and our site is fully accessible. To register your interest, call us on 01726 812110 or email your details to info@roselyonschool.com

We really do look forward to seeing you!

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.

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.
