Boarding plays a major role in Rugby School UK, and it is becoming increasingly central to Rugby School Thailand as well. Our boarding houses provide a nurturing ‘home from home’ where children can immerse themselves in a different side of school life while making some of the strongest relationships.
We believe there are three major advantages to boarding:
- Boarding allows your child time and space to make the very most of all that is on offer at the school. Rugby School Thailand is set on an incredible 80-acre campus, so you child will have world-class facilities at their disposal.
- Boarding helps children develop deep-rooted friendships and strong interpersonal skills that are invaluable in later life.
- Boarding takes away the wasted hours spent in traffic each day, allowing you to have quality time with your child outside the school week. You can leave them safe in the care of our House Parents, who are there to support and look after all your child’s pastoral needs.
We take boarders from Year 3 to the XX Form, with dedicated boarding accommodation for Prep School boarders and Senior School boarders. Our family-friendly approach to boarding offers three different options:
Day children may board up to 2 fixed nights a week. These nights must be booked in with the house staff and they will be fixed for the whole term.
Weekly Boarders stay at school all week, and head home on Friday afternoon for the weekends. The school provides fixed transport to and from Bangkok on Friday and Sunday afternoon each week.
Full Boarders stay at school all week and enjoy the full weekend programme. They are allowed home for fixed weekends either side of half term. If additional time at home is desired this must be requested through the house staff.
