Ethos & Aims

It is Repton’s aim to discover and develop the sporting and athletic potential within every pupil, as part of a balanced and challenging co-curriculum. Repton continues to provide a sports programme that has a positive influence on all ages and abilities of pupils. We aim to develop every pupil’s interest in sport, from aspiring internationals to those for whom sport is just part of a healthy lifestyle.

Our long tradition of sporting excellence gives us the experience required to maximise every pupil’s potential, regardless of the level of sport that they play. To help us achieve this, we offer outstanding facilities and an exceptional team of coaches. This level of support guarantees the best possible environment for every pupil to develop their skills, including the very elite.

Repton offers a choice of over twenty five sports, and an ever-increasing number of teams represent the School at all levels. Our programme is based around team sports, providing pupils with countless opportunities to represent the School.

Pupils are expected to participate in the main sports during their junior years, before progressing to a wider range of options as they move up the School.

As well as organising prestigious fixtures against other schools, we have a programme of inter-house sport, enabling all pupils to experience competitive sport on a regular basis.
