Rockboro School is an independent, co-educational and multi-denominational school for children aged 3 to 13 years which aims for academic excellence and the development of the individual talents and interests of each child. Our enhanced academic curriculum and our broad range of co-curricular and extra-curricular activities foster the intellectual, personal and physical development of our pupils.
Founded in Cork city in 1969, Rockboro has over 45 years experience in the education of children. We believe that a small class size is essential to creating an environment in which pupils thrive academically and for this reason we limit the number of pupils to 20 in each of our classes. At Rockboro, each child is known to their teachers. The individual attention that our pupils receive from their teachers enables them to fulfil their academic potential and develop their talents while building their confidence in their own abilities and judgement.
In addition to fostering academic achievement, at Rockboro we are committed to developing the child as a whole person. We teach our pupils to respect others, to be honest and to treat others as they would like to be treated. We emphasise the values of responsibility, tolerance, consideration for others, perseverance, kindness and integrity.
We are a multi-denominational school and we welcome children from all religious backgrounds, including those with none. Our goal is to encourage all of our pupils to work together to create an atmosphere in which cultural diversity is celebrated, in which each individual is valued and in which each child feels free to explore and discover their own personal talents and interests.
