Rugby’s greatest Head Master, Dr Thomas Arnold, knew that education is all about transforming lives. As he himself put it, ‘First, religious and moral principle; second, gentlemanly conduct; third, academic ability.’ Rugby has since sought to hold onto the conviction that education is much more than the sum of academic results: it is about forming character.
Attending Rugby School can be a life-changing experience
Through the Arnold Foundation we are able to offer this opportunity to motivated young people from some of this country's most deprived communities who will benefit from a boarding education.
The Rugbeian Society is here to support and provide interesting and exciting activities for Rugbeians. We organise a wide range of events which include House Dinners, Business Forums, Theatre trips and sporting activities. On the website you can find out about these and access news covering the Society's activities, both past events, most of which have supporting photos, and future events which we would be delighted if you can attend.
With regular gatherings organised by the Development Office and the Rugbeian Society, the Rugbeian community is vibrant and active. Social, business networking and fundraising events all contribute to an important programme. Many events are recorded on this site.
