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.
