The Education (Admissions) Act 2020 has resulted in changes to how parents can apply for places in secondary schools across Ireland, including Rockwell College, for entry in 2023.

  • For day pupils applying for First Year, applications can only be made after October 3rd in the year prior to entry - i.e. October of 6th Class
  • For boarding pupils applying for entry, applications can only be made after October 3rd two years prior to entry – i.e. October of 5th Class
  • PLEASE NOTE: the closing date for applications to First Year 2023 to be considered under the admissions criteria is November 4th 2022. Applications received after this date will be processed on a first-come first served basis.

The Rockwell College Admissions Notice for 2023-24 outlines the Application and Decision dates for First Year entry in 2023. The updated 2023 Admissions Notice will be available with the Admissions Policy under the Policy Documents tab.

For pupils applying as Day Pupils or Boarders to year groups other than First Year or who are re-enrolling to the College, Rockwell College asks that you submit two school reports with your application and, in the case of boarders, that you and your parents are willing to meet with management - in person or remotely – to assess the applicant’s suitability for boarding school.

Application forms for First Year entry and Entry to Year Groups Other Than First Year are available HERE
