Overseas students

Back to Admissions

We now offer the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme as part of our Sixth Form curriculum. For more details, click on the Curriculum Guide below:

Rugby School welcomes applications from candidates who live overseas. We are a seven days a week boarding school. Except for holidays, Exeats and Leave-out weekends all of the boarding students will be living and working here during term time.

Parents living overseas must appoint a guardian in the UK for their son or daughter. The guardian will have authority to act on behalf of the parents if necessary and make arrangements for time away from School and travel.

Overseas applicants’ proficiency in English language needs to be good enough for the student to thrive academically and socially right from the first day.  We ask that applicants from overseas should provide us with a UKiset report as soon as possible during the application process and certainly before the closing date for applications.  The UKiset is an adaptive cognitive test measuring underlying ability and language proficiency.
