ACADEMIC AMBITION

The end result of a Rugby School education is so much more than exam results, but we never forget that the first foundation stone is in the classroom.

Our Founding Head, Nigel Westlake, comes to us with fifteen years of headship experience at two UK prep/pre-prep schools - Packwood Haugh and Brambletye - well-known for their fine academic record.


The Pre-Prep
The Pre-Prep children will follow an enhanced UK curriculum, providing an exceptional start to their school careers in a happy, supportive environment. It is at this crucial stage in children’s education that core knowledge and understanding are instilled and good habits are formed.

The Prep school
The Prep School academic curriculum will draw from the best of the UK National Curriculum, and the best of the much-admired British private school approach. Pupils will be assessed regularly to monitor progress, and key elements of our syllabus will derive from the UK Independent Schools Examination Board which sets the standard for entry to the most selective UK private schools.

The Senior School
The senior will again draw from the best of the UK National Curriculum, augmented by the very special pioneering programme of learning devised at Rugby School UK. High expectations will be set and a love of learning developed. Rugby school Thailand will offer IGCSE at 16 and A level at 18, and intends to add the IB as the school matures. Rugby School UK, incidentally, has just gained outstanding results at both GCSE and A level.
