What The Good Schools Guide says..
Each boarding house has up to 60 pupils and the furthest is no more is than a ten-minute walk from the heart of the school. We visited soon after the school’s annual pushcart race, hotly contested by all. The victorious house had a jaunty skull and crossbones flag fluttering from a top window...
What the school says...
Rugby School pupils flourish in a supportive and spiritually aware community which challenges learners, develops resilience and encourages intellectual risk-taking. We foster academic excellence, nurture individual talents and ignite that spark enabling our students to develop a lifelong love of learning, while achieving outstanding results.
Our greatest Head Master, Dr Thomas Arnold, knew that education is all about transforming lives and ever since, we have sought to hold onto the conviction that education is much more than the sum of academic results: it is about forming character because at Rugby, the whole person is the whole point
Founded in 1567, Rugby is one of the UK’s oldest schools and was an influential force in the development of independent education. This remarkable and innovative institution has every right to be seen as the leading co-educational boarding school in the country.
