14+ Entry


As soon as you have decided that you would like to proceed with an application to Repton, you need to register your child formally for a place in the School by completing a Registration Form. The form needs to be returned to the Registrar along with a £100 fee and a copy of your child’s passport. Although you are asked for House choice on the Registration Form, and this will be taken into consideration, at this point of entry it is very much dependent upon where space is available.


Approximately one year before entry, we will request a deposit to confirm that you are still interested in your son or daughter joining the School. Once paid, this deposit is refundable only if your child fails to qualify for entry through the entrance examinations. The deposit is 10% of one term’s boarding fee.


Entrance by Examination

Candidates are examined in Mathematics, English and Science and examinations are usually held in late November in the Michaelmas Term prior to entry, although enquiries are welcome throughout the year.

We would also expect to receive a satisfactory report from a candidate’s current school. 

Please be aware that Scholarships are not available at 14+ entry.
