To forge closer ties with one of our closest neighbouring schools and to lend support to the academic experience of the primary pupils with whom we work.

Th partnership has been in existence for at least 10 years.


The project is supervised by a member of the Rugby School Classics Department. Resources are generated by Rugby School and brought across to use at the partnership school.


A key anticipated outcome is to inculcate a love for a subject that the young pupils may not have otherwise encountered.

VIth form pupils from our school assist year 5/6 pupils at the partner school.

Gender of pupils is mixed.

Weekly and an ongoing Wednesday afternoon project. Length of session: typically 60-90 minutes.
