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 2022.

  • For day pupils applying for First Year, applications can only be made after October 4th 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 4th two years prior to entry – i.e. October of 5th Class
  • PLEASE NOTE: the closing date for applications to First Year 2022 to be considered under the admissions criteria was November 5th 2021. Applications can still be made to First Year 2022 and will be processed after November 5th on a first-come-first-served basis.

The Rockwell College Admissions Notice for 2022-23 outlines the Application and Decision dates for First Year entry in 2022. The updated 2022 Admissions Notice is 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, 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 staff - in person or remotely – to assess the applicant’s suitability for boarding school.
