Rugby is one of the oldest and most famous schools in England. It was founded during the reign of Elizabeth I and its splendid history is reflected in its stately buildings, classrooms and courtyards.
Here in 1823, one of the students, William Webb Ellis, picked up a soccer ball and ran
with it. In the process, he created rugby – a game that has since been taken up around the world.Games are still played on the original pitch and visiting students are more than welcome
to take part.
The school is situated a short walk from the centre of the historic market town of Rugby, which is based in an area known as the Heart of England. Many historic landmarks are within easy reach. A short coach ride takes you to Stratford-Upon-Avon – Shakespeare’s birthplace; to Warwick Castle, the finest medieval castle in the country; or to the famous university town of Oxford.
A 50-minute train trip takes you into central London, where you can go shopping in Oxford Street or Covent Garden, enjoy a river cruise or take in a visit to the London Eye/British Museum.
Classes are held in the multi-million pound Collingwood Centre, opened in 2013. It has the very best in educational, sports and dining facilities.
You'll find state-of-the art classrooms, all equipped with the latest teaching aids. There's an ICT suite complete with 24 computers. The sports hall offers five-a-side football, basketball, badminton, aerobics and dodge ball and students on the course will have the unique opportunity to play rugby on the original pitch where the game was invented. The contemporary dining room seats 180.
You’ll also have access to the school’s 25 metre, 6 lane swimming pool; soccer, rugby and rounders pitches; squash courts and all-weather floodlit tennis courts; a Design Centre for art/craft and a Social Centre for discos and other social events.
