Rugby School welcomes applications from candidates who live overseas. We have a license to sponsor overseas children to study in the UK through a Child Student visa. We are a seven days a week boarding school. Except for holidays, Exeats and Leave-out weekends all of the boarding students will be living and working here during term time.
Parents living overseas must appoint a guardian in the UK for their son or daughter. The guardian will have authority to act on behalf of the parents if necessary and make arrangements for time away from School and travel.
Overseas applicants’ proficiency in English language needs to be good enough for the student to thrive academically and socially right from the first day. We ask that applicants from overseas should provide us with a UKiset report as soon as possible during the application process and certainly before the closing date for applications. The UKiset is an adaptive cognitive test measuring underlying ability and language proficiency. For more information please visit: www.ukiset.com .
The admission process will run along exactly the same lines as for UK residents. We expect all applicants to attend interviews at Rugby in Year 7.
We are happy for applicants to sit our entrance tests overseas under appropriate supervision.
The admission process will run along exactly the same lines as for UK residents. We expect all applicants to attend our entrance tests and interviews at Rugby. We schedule interviews for overseas Scholarship applicants to be on the day following the entrance tests if at all possible.
For pupils whose parents’ normal residence is outside the UK the School will require a deposit of one term’s fees in advance, as well as the first term’s fees.
