The school’s mentor system is a major element in this educational service. Each student is assigned a member of the academic staff to act as a personal mentor. The mentor helps in guiding the student’s academic progress and in the development of his character and personality. Through mentoring and the integrated formation offered by Rockbrook each student will be encouraged to do his best and to serve society through his work and unique personal qualities.
The same mentor may be assigned to a student over his six years in Rockbrook. Mentors meet the students entrusted to them on a regular basis (usually on a three-weekly basis), in total around ten times during the academic year.
Preparing to meet mentor
Where possible a student should prepare himself for the regular mentoring meeting. He should spend a few minutes looking over the topics highlighted under Mentoring in the Student Journal, and be ready to talk about them with his mentor. He should also consider the monthly character aim. There are also specific topics highlighted in the Journal for consideration at different times of the year.
