Join us for our Open Morning, Friday 13th March from 9.30am
What does this mean? It means that while academic excellence lies at the heart of the Rugby School experience, sport, music, art, drama and co-curricular activities are also highly valued. Every child here has space to thrive and we actively encourage our students to try new things. Mind, body and spirit, we nurture all sides of every person in our care.
9.30am: Gates open / registration.
10am: Hear from the Headmasters.
10.30am-12pm: Take pupil-led tours and see classes in action.
Refreshments will be served throughout the morning
