Rockport is the only school of its kind in Northern Ireland, i.e. an independent Junior and Senior School, based on public school lines. The Head is a member of the 16+ Group in the IAPS (Incorporated Association of Preparatory Schools) the largest association of Prep Schools in the UK with over 500 members. Rockport also boasts membership of the Boarding School Association (BSA), and the North Down Heads' Group. Belonging to these organizations enables the school to be pro-active in its approach to education and enables the sharing of good-practice.
The school is also a member of the PNIBS (Partnership in Northern Ireland Boarding Schools), a smaller local organization, which keeps Rockport in touch with the other boarding schools in Northern Ireland.
We believe that our continued success is reliant on being able to move with the times – responding quickly to the many and varied changes in the world of education; maintaining emphasis on the individual pupil and his/her needs; and ensuring that the home/school partnership concentrates on communication and support.
