Rugby School, one of England's oldest and most prestigious public schools, rose to national prominence in the 1820s through the teaching methods pioneered by its headmaster, Dr Thomas Arnold, which contributed to a radical change in Public School education in England. Most of the present school buildings, near the centre of the town, date from this period.
At least two centuries of Rugby’s history are written in the stones and other monuments to tradition that stand around the School Close, where in 1823 a local lad called William Webb Ellis first ran with the ball and invented the game of rugby football.
Rugby is also a birthplace of the jet engine. In April 1937 Frank Whittle built the world's first prototype jet engine at the British Thomson-Houston works in Rugby, and between 1936-41 based himself at Brownsover Hall on the outskirts, where he designed and developed early prototype engines. Much of his work was also carried out at nearby Lutterworth.
Holography was also invented in Rugby by the Hungarian inventor Dennis Gabor in 1947.
