The most Complete School Programmes for International Students
Study in an Irish School
Embrace the Culture
Live new Experiences
School programmes are a great way for your child to experience life in another country while continuing their education in a school system similar to their own. It is also a wonderful opportunity for your child to perfect their English speaking and listening skills on a day-to-day basis. The confidence they will gain and the fluency they will obtain are just not achievable in non-English speaking environments.
Studying in a local school with Irish students, living with a host family with younger children, making new friends from all over the world and being fully immersed in the culture and traditions of the country offers a uniquely enriching and rewarding experience for any child that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
Rockbrook International has been offering this experience to its students for over 35 years and we are proud to be part of their journey.
