Rugby School is an educational community whose philosophy embraces the challenges of academic excellence, responsibility and leadership, spiritual awareness and participation in a wide variety of activities.
Academic excellence is important, but more important are the values that go with it. At Rugby, boys and girls explore their identity and strengths, and find the sympathetic expertise that helps them to transform individual talents into accomplishments - accomplishments which will make them valued and respected in an increasingly complex world.
This kind of humane wisdom is what Dr Arnold believed in and it is still a key aspect of what makes Rugby distinctive today. I hope you will enjoy looking at the website but it is no substitute for a visit. We look forward to welcoming you to what is undoubtedly a remarkable and innovative institution that has every right to be seen as the leading co-educational boarding school in the country.
