About Rokeby School

The Ethos of a Great School

‘Your son comes first’: At Rokeby we put the boys, as individuals, before anything else.

We want all of our young people to know that the essence of achievement lies in what they themselves can do and what they can take pride in; that it is not so much about competition with other pupils as with trying to gain the best for themselves from the wealth of opportunities our staff and facilities offer. This demands dedicated teaching, enthusiastic children and good partnership work with parents; and we are proud of this team approach.

Motivation and Opportunities

Rokeby offers an education from 4-13 years and through an integrated approach to pre-prep and prep we provide a stand-alone school that, whilst enjoying strong associations with many senior schools, does not tie your son to one school from 4-18yrs. Some parents seek a single sex environment from a young age whilst others are looking for coeducation; at Rokeby we believe that single sex education provides a strong base for motivation and achievement through a breadth of opportunities. And we understand boys!
