In this year’s Leaving Certificate exams a remarkable 14 6th Yearboarders exceeded 500 points. Four out of these were in excess of 600 points with one of them achieving the maximum of 625. One Rockwell student also obtained 8 H1’s this year. In the past five years three Rockwell students have achieved first place in Accounting, Business and Geography in Ireland out of over 50,000 sitting the Leaving Certificate each year.
When asked what they attributed these results to one said “I couldn’t have achieved this at home with all the distractions around me. The Residence at Rockwell allowed me to focus on my studies and I felt there was a very competitive environment which allowed me to surpass my wildest dreams”. The parent of one boarder commented “5 day boarding at Rockwell college offered our son great structure and consistency. Rockwell’s evening study schedule was hugely …. The teachers support and encourage students. We are happy that we chose Rockwell and would recommend it to other families considering boarding school.”
