Rockport school


Rockport School, founded in 1906, is a co-educational day and boarding school for children 2½ - 18. We boast a unique setting on the shoreline of Belfast Lough allowing easy access to the Coastal Path which runs from Holywood to Bangor, and easy reach of transport links.

We are the only independent school in Northern Ireland and always ensure that the child comes first. We truly are an International school, pupils are global citizens and are taught to be outward looking and have an understanding of the wider world. Rockport is a proud member of Round Square – an association of schools worldwide committed to shared IDEALS (Internationalism; Democracy; Environment; Adventure; Leadership; Service)

A charming, gentle, small school on the shores of Belfast Lough which feels like one big family and where ‘there is top down happiness from the headmaster and staff to the children and everyone seems to be smiling.
