Applicants from Year 6

Year 6 assessments - new for 2024

New for 2024 and due to high demand, children in Year 6 can now apply for a 13+ Boarding or a Day place to Rugby School for September 2027 and beyond.

The Assessment date will be on Tuesday 26 November 2024 for Day and Boarding applicants.  An enjoyable and fun day, it will also be challenging at an age-appropriate level for children in Year 6 with  some tests, a short interview and collaborative activities. Subsequently, offers will be made for Boarding and Day places, subject to our normal entry requirements. 

Children with successful Boarding offers will be invited back during the Advent Term of Year 7 to visit Houses.  

We will continue to offer the Year 7 pathway into Rugby School for Boarding applicants, and we are always open to meet families whose situation means that they are applying late in the cycle. We are mindful that children mature at different rates.  

Please do get in touch by email admissions@rugbyschool.net or by telephone +44 (0) 1788 556134. 

Boarding Pathway from Bilton Grange

We are also excited to announce a new all-through boarding pathway from nearby Bilton Grange Preparatory School to Rugby School. Children joining as a new boarder at Bilton Grange in Year 7 will be able to continue their boarding journey straight through to Rugby School without the need to apply for assessment against external applicants.
