Rockbrook International places students in over 40 different Catholic schools, mainly in the Dublin area but also in Wicklow, Carlow and Kildare. The secondary schools are all single-sex; primary schools either single-sex or mixed. The students are in class with about 25 Irish students of the same age.
They do exactly the same subjects as their classmates: mathematics, science, geography, history, business studies, etc – all through English. They do the same homework, exercises, and exams as their Irish classmates and the teacher will treat them as just one more student.
All students are assigned a tutor who looks after them during their stay in Ireland. Tutors keep in regular contact with their students to help them settle into the school and family. They monitor their progress and deal with any issues which arise.
They send regular reports to their parents, generally by email. Both parents and host family have the tutor’s mobile number in case they need to contact him or her.
