Sixth Form

The Sixth Form at Rugby School encourages and supports students to go beyond their best, to try something new, to take advantage of the many great opportunities and use these final two years at one of the UK’s top schools as an inspirational launch pad, because at Rugby, the whole person is the whole point.

“Rugby School has been so much more than a school to me.  The academic experience here is an extraordinary combination of dedicated teachers, an atmosphere of support and motivation and an aim for every student to achieve their academic and personal best.”

Join our thriving Upper School, choose from an excellent range of subject choices with the knowledge there will be individual support from teachers dedicated to providing the tools best suited to help each and every student challenge themselves and flourish. The curriculum primarily consists of A-Levels, although we also offer the PreU qualification in Maths, Biology, Chemistry and Physics, and pupils are expected to pursue four academic options, or three plus an Extended Project Qualification (no independent AS-Levels are offered here).

Rugby Sixth Formers enjoy the School’s Collingwood Centre – a dedicated Sixth Form facility centred on an impressive three-storey, Pugin-style building.

Only Sixth Form subjects are taught here including Economics, Business Studies, Politics, PE and Philosophy. A scaled-down House of Commons, complete with green leather seats, brings politics to life, while the modern, comfortable common room is a privilege for Upper School only creating more of a ‘university’ atmosphere.

“Rugby school teaches lessons beyond the classroom, and equips every pupil with responsibility, curiosity to learn and to challenge themselves but also to cherish their personal achievements.”
