About Repton

Repton School is a very special place to study. Founded in 1557, our co-educational school is an integral part of the village of Repton in South Derbyshire.

With around 650 pupils aged 13-18 years old, the school is large enough to create a ‘buzz’ but small enough for all to flourish and to know one another. We have ten Boarding houses and all meals are taken within them, further reinforcing the family and caring atmosphere.

Academic work is at the heart of what we do and our overall aim is to allow each pupil to develop his or her potential to the maximum. Each year around 10% of pupils are offered places at either Oxford or Cambridge Universities.

Repton is recognised as one of the top sporting schools in the UK and excels at Hockey, Football and Tennis. The School also has very strong Music and Art departments and an outstanding record in Drama. Repton’s education addresses the whole person through a rich balance of the three primary facets of school life: the educational, the pastoral and the co-curricular.

In 2016,well over half of the A Level passes (53.7%) were awarded an A* or A grade with 17.4% of the passes receiving an A* grade. 13 pupils were awarded four or more A*/A grade passes. In GCSEs, more than a quarter (27%) of entries were awarded an A* grade and 59% achieved A or A*
