Rugby School Japan Kashiwanoha Tokyo

Company Showcase: Rugby School Japan



Opened in September 2023, Rugby School Japan (RSJ), is located in Kashiwanoha, a hub of education, innovation, and entrepreneurship just 30 minutes from central Tokyo. As the second international school established by the prestigious Rugby School group, RSJ offers a co-educational, day and boarding experience for pupils aged 11-18 years, combining the excellence of a British education with the unique benefits of being in Japan. 

Leadership and Ethos 

The Founding Principal, Tony Darby, brings 14 years of experience from Rugby School in the UK, having served as a Housemaster and Head of Economics. Central to the school’s ethos is the Rugby Learner Profile, promoting enquiry, communication, global-mindedness, versatility, reflection, and resilience. With the motto 'The Whole Person, The Whole Point', RSJ nurtures students to be kind, inclusive, courageous, and curious. 

Academic Excellence 

RSJ is academically selective, welcoming students from all over the world. The curriculum follows the British education system, preparing pupils for IGCSE and A-levels, with English as the medium of instruction. As an Apple School, students use iPads until Year 10 and laptops from Years 11-13. The first IGCSE results will be published in August 2024, and the first A-level results in August 2025. The University Counselling team supports students through their University application process.
