Amanda Hoskin to attend Art Day


Join us for an exciting and creative day of art at Roselyon School!

On Thursday 9 May 2019, from 9am to 3.45pm, we are offering a day of fun, challenge and arty education!

Ideal for children in Year groups 2, 3 and 4, including those who are home-educated, children will first create an innovative masterpiece from an unusual collection of mystery materials – weather permitting, in our wonderful outdoor learning environment.

Then after lunch, which we will provide, we are excited to announce the visit of landscape artist Amanda Hoskin, who will be leading a workshop designed to stretch every child’s interest and ability.

Churchtown Staff Reunion Event


There was a wonderfully warm atmosphere of reminiscence when former staff of Churchtown Farm returned for a special reunion event organised by Roselyon School last week.

The event attracted over 40 staff members who had all previously worked for Churchtown Farm and Activity Centre when it operated as a respite centre in the mid 1970s through to 2011, providing day services and holidays for young disabled people and youngsters with special educational needs.

Roselyon School staff and children were delighted to show guests and their families around the buildings and the facilities that the school has been enjoying since it relocated to Lanlivery, as well witness the reunion of friends and colleagues who had not seen each other for many years. Tea, cake and much news were shared by all!

“We all came away with a warm feeling of well being, knowing our beloved buildings are in very safe, and loving hands,” said Mel Millett, former Care Manager and Deputy Centre Manager at Churchtown Farm.

Hilary Mann, Head of Roselyon School, added, “It was such a pleasure to see so many people who hold this building dear and we were pleased that they were really impressed with the changes we have made. The spirit of the building lives on.” 

Any staff of Churchtown who missed the reunion are most welcome to visit when they are in the area – the snowy weather on the day meant that many missed out, although we were most impressed by one tenacious visitor who travelled all the way from the Isle of Mull! Please phone 01726 812110 to arrange a look around.

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.

For more details, do call us on 01726 812110 or email info@roselyonschool.com

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.
