Home & Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to this website – the first step in what we at Rugby School Thailand believe has the potential to be a transformational experience for you and your children.

Rugby School Thailand, you see, is unique. It is not based upon the international school model – it is based upon the British private school model. And it is the only school in Thailand that has the necessary combination of experience, space, location and ambition to genuinely reproduce the quality and breadth of education that draws thousands of overseas students to the top British private schools every year.

Rugby School Thailand’s link with Rugby School in the UK provides us with access to 450 years of educational and pastoral heritage. And Rugby School has recognised, more than any other UK school, that modern education is about ‘the whole person’ – mind, body and spirit, all connected.

At Rugby School Thailand, therefore, we will reflect this philosophy – for without a healthy body, you will not find a mind that is reaching its potential, and without the right spirit, the right qualities of character, you will not find young people who are at ease with themselves, with others, and with their future in this world.

If you’d like to learn more – about our enhanced school day, about our glorious 75 acre site, about day and boarding, about our extraordinary facilities, about our ‘House’ system, about our determination to ensure that our pupils flourish in a happy and secure environment – then I invite you to delve deeper into this website. I think that you will find that Rugby School Thailand offers an educational experience that is very different and very distinctive…
