Benefits of Boarding
The boarding houses at Rugby School Thailand aim to provide a happy place where our children can rest and play with the care and support of our teachers, but our ‘home away from home’ also offers many other benefits.
Expert pastoral guidance
In the homely environment of our boarding houses, our House Parents and House Deans are present and available to care for and provide any support that your child needs. Our experienced, understanding teachers help develop core values and work on any personal or academic issues a child might be experiencing. Our boarding houses also have strict rules on mobile and screen usage, to ensure our children spend their time building interpersonal skills, discovering new hobbies and resting properly.
Less time commuting, more time engaging
Friendships for life
The friendships our children make are among the most unique and rewarding aspects of our boarding experience. When children live together, care for and support each other and grow together, they foster a strong sense of family community that only becomes more enriching as they grow.
A sense of independence
From the first boarding years through Prep to the last ones in Sixth Form, our children foster a sense of independence. They make their own bed and help with laundry or with loading the dishwasher after snacks. These simple life skills build a sense of responsibility and self-sufficiency in our children. As they graduate, our boarders leave for university with a practical skill set and a mature attitude.
The many facilities at Rugby School Thailand become part of our home environment. The playing fields are a back garden for boarders. Swimming, exploring the nature trails around the grounds and camping in the Outdoor Education Centre are our regular activities. Our boarders also enjoy fun weekend excursions to exciting local places.
