 According to Clarence Education Asia, the school opened on the Chiba University campus in Kashiwanoha Smart City.Although Rugby School Japan is treated as a different type of school than elementary and junior high schools, all classes are conducted in English with the aim of providing students with a British secondary school graduation qualification and the international university entrance qualification ``A Level''.

 The school building is equipped with an international standard rugby field, a theater theatre, a debate room modeled on the British House of Commons, a dance studio that meets the standards of the Royal Ballet's practice range, and dormitories.
