Enrolment Process

At Rockbrook School, we recognise the importance of selecting the correct secondary school for the student and for his family.  With this in mind, we aim to be as informative and helpful as possible.

Applicants should read the school’s Admissions Policy prior to completing the application form. The information requested on the application form is required to process your application for admission to Rockbrook School.  The information provided by you will be treated confidentially and processed in line with the school’s Admissions Policy.

The school does not charge any fee for submitting an application for admission to the school.

1st year applications

To enrol as a student, a boy must be at least 12 years of age by the 1st of January of the year prior to entry. If your son is too young to formally enrol at the moment, you can keep in touch with us by filling in the ‘Keep In Contact’ form. Places will be offered in accordance with our Admission Policy. Offers will not be made before the date set out in the Annual Admissions Notice.

2nd-6th year applications

You may apply any time for a place in Rockbrook School for 2nd-6th year.  Any available places will be allocated in accordance with the selection criteria in our Admissions Policy. Any offer is conditional on payment of a deposit in full.

Please see Enrolment Form 21/22 for further information on school fees.  If you wish to apply our application form may be completed online, or if preferable may be downloaded.

Open Days

For prospective students and their families to explore our extensive campus and meet our school community of students and teachers, each year we hold Open Days.  The next Open Days in Rockbrook School will take place on September 18th and 19th 2021.

In keeping with the safety requirements for our students and staff due to Covid-19, places this year are limited.  If you would like to attend, please book an appointment.

Scholarships

Each year students from 6th class with high academic promise are invited to participate in our scholarship examination. It is open to incoming students already offered a place in the school for the following September, and also to students who have not yet applied to the school (in this case, their application for a Scholarship is dependent on there still being remaining places in 1st year for the following September.)

The scholarship application form must be downloaded, filled in and returned to the school.

Scholarship applications for students commencing in 2021 are accepted from 1st December 2020, until 8th January 2021 (this is an extension from the original date of 20th December). Exams will be run in mid-January 2021 and decisions on applications will be made by the end of January 2021.

Bursaries

FamEd CLG, the trustees of Rockbrook Park School, have developed a bursary programme for school families. Bursaries are intended to supplement a family’s own resources, and recipients range from families whose ability to pay school costs is quite limited to families who may need only a minor subsidy. Full details on our bursary policy and application process are available on request.

Bursary applications can only be made on behalf of a student already enrolled in the school for the following September, and may be submitted once he has received his Letter of Offer of a place in the school.
