Staff and student leadership

Welcome to Rockwell College,

Here at Rockwell, we're more than a school – we're a community. We proudly offer a warm Catholic co-educational boarding experience that welcomes both boys and girls, with flexible 7-day and 5-day options. Our goal is simple: to create a second home that empowers students to reach their full potential through a blend of academics and extra-curricular activities.

Step into the inviting embrace of our Shanahan Hall Residence, where boarders enjoy single, twin, triple rooms, and cozy mini-dorms for up to 4. It's a mix that balances personal space with a strong sense of belonging in our tight-knit community.

Our student body comes from all walks of life, representing places like the U.K., Germany, Spain, and beyond. This diverse blend enriches our inclusive ethos and creates an exciting, dynamic learning environment.

Our boarding facilities offer modern comfort and quality. At Rockwell College, we don't just focus on independence – we foster a deep-rooted sense of responsibility.

To discover more about our boarding options and experience Rockwell, connect with our Reception to plan a visit or use the "Submit an Enquiry" on our homepage.

Looking forward to personally welcoming you.

Warm regards,

Michael Doyle and team

Boarders Council

Introducing the Boarders Council at Rockwell College!

This dynamic group comprises representatives from each year, convening monthly alongside the Residence Manager. Chosen by fellow boarders at the beginning of the year, council members maintain ongoing dialogues to collect suggestions and concerns, subsequently addressed during council meetings.

The Boarders Council serves as a platform for boarders to engage with staff and voice their ideas. We deeply appreciate the contributions of every boarder in shaping our daily operations, and the Council guarantees that their viewpoints remain integral and respected.
