Our Ethos

We believe that learning should be an enjoyable, challenging, and rewarding experience. Rockboro School takes pride in providing a caring and supportive community that brings out the best in our pupils, both academically and as developing individuals.

The school’s friendly and supportive environment enables children to make the most of our enhanced curriculum and instills in them a sense of curiosity and a love of learning that they will take with them into the world. Our focus on the whole person ensures that personal development goes hand in hand with academic achievement.

As a multi-denominational school, we educate together children of different religious affiliations, or none, thereby fostering in our pupils an appreciation for traditions other than their own. Our pupils are encouraged to develop positive and healthy attitudes toward life, embrace cultural diversity, and to develop a concern and respect for others in their community.
