School House is a friendly, inclusive and warm-spirited boarding-house that offers 64 boys, aged from 13 to 18, a family 'home-from-home' atmosphere. It is a house for the committed all-rounder who is keen to embrace all that boarding life at Repton has to offer. New members of the House can expect to be inspired and supported by an experienced and committed staff team, whilst the boys in the House actively look to welcome, mentor, guide and encourage those who are embarking on the start of their Repton careers. It really is a very special boarding environment.
As Houseparents, Tom and Vicky Naylor are committed to providing the highest level of pastoral care to each and every member of the House during their time at Repton, whilst promoting the importance of good manners and tolerance. They are strongly supported by a superb team of tutors – Mr Swanston (Resident), Mr Hunt, Mr Levesley, Mr Exley, Mr Odell and Mr Dell - as well as our experienced live-in Matron, Cherry Baker.
