Primary school places for September 2019

Following the announcement of primary school places last week, it is clear that a number of schools in Cornwall are over-subscribed for September 2019, resulting in anxiety and disappointment for many families.

If you find yourself in this position, you might want to consider Roselyon School as an option.

Based in Lanlivery, between St Austell and Lostwithiel, we have a small number of places left in reception class for September 2019, and for those worried about having siblings at separate schools, we may have places available in other primary years. We organise private minibus transport to locations throughout Cornwall to alleviate the pressure of travelling if you live further afield, as well as wrap around care for working parents.

Head teacher, Hillary Mann explains: “We are lucky to not be bound by the restraint of the school application deadlines and can therefore offer parents the chance to have a look at our school and take up one of the few spaces remaining. Applications will only close once we have a full class. We pride ourselves on small classes at Roselyon and therefore encourage interested parents to get in contact as soon as possible to ensure a space is available.”

Anyone interested in the school is invited to call Mrs Mann on 01726 812110 or email her via

Roselyon School was founded in 1952 and was originally located in a mine-owner’s house on a wooded, 5 acre site in Par, but in 2018 we moved to a bigger site set in the grounds of the former Churchtown Farm, Lanlivery. Our new site has acres of open space enabling the children to take part in many outdoor activities including forest school and beach school, and we now have access to a neighbouring working farm. Our main building is fully accessible and newly refurbished.

We pride ourselves on small classes enabling teachers to support each child and help them gain their full potential. Roselyon can boast many competition wins including the 2017 UK fencing championships, classes in the Cornwall sailing regatta, cross country, art, poetry, music and more.
