Boarding Pathway

We are excited to announce a new all-through boarding pathway from Bilton Grange 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.

Bilton Grange

And as an added incentive, Year 7 boarders in 2025 will be living in Bilton Grange’s brand new, state-of-the-art boarding house designed with children’s comfort and modern lifestyle at its heart.

Championing boarding fun for seven to 13-year-olds, this truly amazing home from home will feature hub spaces for games and music, an indoor cinema, outdoor amphitheatre and the absolute star – a helter-skelter-style slide to travel between the four levels.

In addition, there are huge benefits for children on the Bilton Grange pathway to Rugby School – as part of the Rugby School group, the nearby prep school shares learning programmes, facilities and staff with its bigger neighbour, enabling an easy transition to a senior school they will be already be prepared for.

Bilton Grange is an exceptional country prep school set in 90 acres with an impressive record of scholarship offers to Rugby. The First Step in The Adventure of Life, it is equally committed to the development of character as it is to academic, artistic and sporting achievement. It is quite simply the perfect fit for Rugby School’s Whole Person Whole Point ethos.
