Welcome from the Headmaster

When I first visited Repton, I was struck by the warmth and purposefulness of the staff and pupils that I encountered. This was an educational family of which I wanted to be a part. Having been in post now for over a year, I have grown to understand how this warmth is central to the work of the school. Repton is a truly happy place to work and study. Happy environments create pupils who are confident and well-balanced, and therefore best-placed to thrive. Academically, culturally, and in sports, our pupils do just that.

Reptonians possess a great variety of talents and ambitions, some of them as yet undiscovered: with care and professionalism, my colleagues and I develop these talents. What is Repton all about? Repton stands for its Values, provides an education that is rooted in and prepares for the Real World and keeps in mind Heritage, both the one it benefits from and the one it leaves for the next generation.

Our staff and pupils are enthusiastic and sincere ambassadors, and would love to welcome you for a tour of the school. You will explore this website to see the key aspects of what we aim to do and how we do it, but coming to see us is the best way of experiencing the warmth of the Repton family. We hope you will come to visit.
