'...results of [staff and pupils] innovative thinking and hard work are seen through sky-rocketing results in academic, sport and the arts.' - Tatler Schools Guide 2021                             

We are pleased to welcome visitors to the school again and are optimistic this will continue in September. However for families who will still  not be able to travel, or in case we face further Covid restrictions, we will continue to offer opportunities to visit virtually and to join our Open Events virtually.

Pupils usually apply for entry to the School at one of two points - Year 9 (13+) and Year 12 (16+) for both boarding and day places.

For entry in Year 9 we invite you to arrange an individual visit to the School during your child’s Year 5 or Year 6. There are also monthly Open Mornings on Saturdays throughout the school year for pupils applying for boarding places. During the summer term these are particularly focused on those in Year 6.

For entry in Year 12 we hold Open Days in June of Year 10 and September of Year 11. Alternatively you may arrange an individual visit to the School. Click here for a full list of our Open Days.

At Rugby School we welcome enquiries for children from a diverse range of backgrounds and all applicants for admission will be treated equally. We look forward to welcoming you to Rugby School.
