'...results of [staff and pupils] innovative thinking and hard work are seen through sky-rocketing results in academic, sport and the arts.' - Tatler Schools Guide 2021                             

While Rugby School is physically closed to visitors, we are delighted to invite UK and overseas parents to visit and meet us remotely. Our Admissions team, Housemistresses and Housemasters, as well as other senior staff, will be very pleased to arrange a call or video chat.

When we re-open, the following visiting arrangements will be back in place:

Pupils usually apply for entry to the School at one of two points - Year 9 (13+) and Year 12 (16+) for both boarding and day places.

For entry in Year 9 we invite you to arrange an individual visit to the School during your child’s Year 5 or Year 6. There are also monthly Open Mornings on Saturdays throughout the school year for pupils applying for boarding places. During the summer term these are particularly focused on those in Year 6.

For entry in Year 12 we hold Open Days in June of Year 10 and September of Year 11. Alternatively you may arrange an individual visit to the School. Click here for a full list of our Open Days.

At Rugby School we welcome enquiries for children from a diverse range of backgrounds and all applicants for admission will be treated equally. We look forward to welcoming you to Rugby School.
