ABOUT THE HOUSE
Stanley is a sixth form boarding house. All our girls are new to Rugby in the LXX, which can make the transition to a different school less daunting, especially for those girls who may be living away from home for the first time. We welcome students from a wide range of educational backgrounds and nationalities, and we have a reputation as an inclusive, grown-up and high-flying house.
Our aim in Stanley is to help our sixth-formers prepare for university. We have an experienced team of tutors and subject specialists who work closely with the girls on their UCAS applications and IB or A-level studies. We help the girls to take responsibility for their academic learning and extra-curricular involvement and to develop both independence and resilience.
Stanley girls are motivated and ambitious. They work hard, but they also play hard and we help new girls to integrate into the wider school community though a series of social events, from drink swaps to bingo nights. The girls often take leading roles in clubs, societies and sports teams. There is always strong Stanley representation on the leveé (prefect) body and our girls participate in a large number of music ensembles and plays.
With only two years to make the most of all that Rugby has to offer, life in Stanley is very busy. However, visitors often comment on the house’s homely atmosphere, and the girls’ well-being is always our priority.
Stanley is located centrally in the school, next door to the Temple Reading Room with stunning views of the Close and Chapel.
