Rugby School Boarding House Completed

The new Boarding House at Rugby School is now complete, providing an additional 60 bedrooms for pupils. In addition to these, the new building also hosts a large dining hall and atrium, communal areas, including a roof terrace and accommodation for the Housemaster, Assistant Housemaster and the Matron. The sustainable boarding house has incorporated the use of advanced off-site manufactured bathroom pods to provide en-suite facilities, reducing construction time and ensuring premium quality.

The impressive double-height atrium (pictured) provides flexible spaces for socialising and study, for both pupils and staff. The new development is the School’s first purpose-built boarding house since 1938 and is part of an eight-phase refurbishment of the existing boarding facilities.

GSS were appointed as Architects, Lead Consultants, Principal Designers and Quantity Surveyors for the £5.5m scheme, which is part of an eight-phase refurbishment of the School’s existing boarding facilities.
