Learning Environment

At Rockboro, our small class size (a maximum of 20 pupils per class) means that teachers can provide individualised attention and ensure that each child receives the guidance they need to reach their full academic potential.

Our enhanced academic curriculum seeks to establish a solid foundation in literacy and numeracy while encouraging pupils to think independently and creatively. Our talented and dedicated teachers are committed to engaging children in learning in an environment in which every child is known and in which each child’s individual talents and needs are supported.

At Rockboro, children from the age of 5 onwards benefit from the expertise of specialist teachers in many subjects (including Information Technology and Computer Science, Irish, French, Drama, Music and Physical Education).

All of our teachers maintain close contact with parents and work with them to provide the support needed to allow each child to realise their potential. When our pupils leave us after J6, they are confident, independent young people who are well prepared for secondary school and beyond.
