Parents & Carers


Welcome to Rossett School.

Although the move from primary to secondary education can seem daunting, here at Rossett we endeavour to make it as smooth as possible aided by our excellent liaison and transition programme. Key Rossett staff visit our primary feeder schools to meet with Year 6 students and there is a comprehensive events timeline for students and parents providing vital transitional information.
