About the school

As a pre-eminent co-educational boarding and day school in the heart of England, Repton provides an exceptional broad-based education, blending heritage with the pursuit of excellence in a 21st century context, offering world class facilities as well as high quality teaching and pastoral care. The School has a thousand pupils across the Prep and Senior School, making it large enough to achieve excellence in and out of the classroom, yet small enough for individuals to grow and flourish. Academic standards are high and because most of our teachers, tutors and coaches are based in the village, Reptonians never have to prioritise academic achievement over their love of the theatre or rank their aptitude for sport above their passion for music.
