AFTER launching the Pre-Prep and Prep Schools in 2017, Rugby School Thailand is quickly becoming one of the top international schools not only in Thailand but also the whole of Asia.
Boasting 450 years of heritage from Rugby School UK, the curriculum at Rugby School Thailand offers all the advantages of the UK’s renowned boarding school system.
Rugby School Thailand offers both Day and Boarding with three available boarding options: Day Boarding which is 1-2 nights per week, Weekly Boarding where students go home during the weekends and Full Boarding where students go home during the half-term or leave-weekends. Serving all 7+ year-old students with a full timetable from 8.15 am to 5.50pm, this sets it apart from the general short-day system in most of the international schools in Thailand. After hours for boarders is reserved for quiet study time and further numerous activities.
The school’s campus is fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities that will provide an endless range of opportunities for its students to explore their passions and interests. All students can choose to participate in the Saturday enrichment programme where the teachers will take their subjects or specialities beyond the core curriculum and let the students explore more than they can learn in classes.
Rugby School Thailand is very selective when it comes to the students. The school application will assess three critical areas: academic ability and potential (including English language skills), talents and potential in other fields such as sports, music, drama and art and qualities of character. Scholarships are available for students with exceptional talent and ability.
Parents are increasingly looking for more than just academic excellence but also a programme where the school can help broaden the children’s horizon and experience. Rugby School Thailand helps develop their personalities and confidence which will, in turn, help them grow into wholesome adults.
