About Rugby School
Rugby School is a true 24-7, co-educational boarding school and a world-leading, modern educator.
We recognise the three strands of academic, co-curricular and pastoral are inherently and inextricably linked. It is the successful combining of these three strands which is at the heart of our Whole Person Whole Point ethos.
Our educational culture and reputation over time has been founded upon the courage to question and the development of personal responsibility. This is reflected in the school’s influence more widely in the development of excellent teaching and learning, sport and pastoral care within the independent school system.
Much copied but never bettered, Rugby’s 200 years of ‘House’ experience has resulted in a world-class, uncompromised care plan which supports every single student. Every House has its own unique character, in different locations and of varying sizes, but all offering a true home away from home, a real family to which every student belongs and is fiercely proud of.
