Rugbeian Society

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.

Rugbeians Online

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.

American Friends

The American Friends of Rugby School offers activities for Rugbeians, parents and friends of the School living in the United States, giving us a chance to know each other as community, sharing a common bond and experience that is distinctive, especially in America.
