Curriculum

Pupil writing in book

In keeping with our ethos of enabling boys to become Smart and Skilful, the curriculum at Rokeby is successful in a comprehensive and balanced syllabus which surpasses the National Curriculum requirements providing the right learning to prepare boys in every way for their future schools. The aim is not only to equip them for the particular pre-tests and then the Common Entrance or Scholarship Examinations, but also to teach them a breadth of skills which will serve them well both in their next schools and their future lives.
