Inspection Reports

“Rugby School is highly successful is realising it's aims, principally the development of pupils' all-round skills and talents and a strong sense of service to the community.”

Independent Schools Inspectorate, Integrated Inspection 2014


“The quality of the boarding provision is outstanding in all outcome areas...There is a strong emphasis on individualised support and a clear commitment by staff to providing a nurturing and caring ethos.”

Ofsted Social Care Inspection, 2011


Independent Schools Inspectorate, Compliance Inspection 2018

Parental questionnaires and student questionnaires for the 2018 Compliance Inspection were overwhelmingly positive, with average approval scores of more than 95 per cent.

Under Part One – Quality of Education Provided, the report recognises academic results at GCSE are well above the national average for maintained schools and, more importantly, above the national average for maintained selective schools. This is a significant improvement on the last inspection. They also note that A Level results in 2014 were above the national average for sixth forms and well above the national average in 2016.
