Qualities and characteristics best defining the school

Rugby School Thailand is an outstanding co-educational British International School for day and boarding students for children aged 2-18. The School, which is the first international outpost of the prestigious 453-year-old Rugby School UK, sits in the majestic rolling countryside of Thailand’s Eastern Seaboard. It provides an education that is based on the expansive mindset and traditional values of the British private school model, and champions a new era of international education in Asia.

Teaching approach of the school

Rugby School Thailand follows the British private school model, with smaller classes and longer days that integrate sport and extracurricular activities (including everything from touch rugby, Chanbara and coding, to archery, sailing and bushcraft, to name a few). Students in the Senior School take IGCSE and A level examinations. The school’s dynamic approach to education is an integral part of the Rugby School ethos: ‘The Whole Person, The Whole Point’. It seeks to nurture the multi-faceted individual and enables students to thrive in all aspects of life. Academic excellence remains at the heart of the experience, but children develop a spectrum of skills and interests that not only elevate applications to top global universities but last a lifetime.
