450th Anniversary



As we end the 450th Anniversary Year, we reflect on the wonderful impact that this year has had on the special community that was established by Lawrence Sheriff in 1567 when he founded Rugby School. We have published a book, produced a film, created an exhibition, designed a 450th merchandise portfolio, sent a 450th Anniversary rugby ball around the world, erected two plaques….. and by the end of the year, we will have organised several quite different events ranging from the International Schools U18 Rugby Sevens Tournament at the School, to a fine Dinner at Middle Temple Hall and a Street Festival on the Rugby Estate in London.

The Rugby School community will physically re-unite in September. We are proud of our staff and students who have engaged in a full, virtual timetable enabling us all to flourish during this challenging time. Plans for a safe return of the whole School community will involve comprehensive risk assessments and a commitment to the BSA COVID-SAFE Charter. Find out more about our bespoke virtual visits and Open Days here
