FOOTBALL

Repton holds a very strong national reputation for football with a number of players in recent years leaving us to start a professional career, most notably the Premier League footballer Will Hughes at Derby County, Watford and Crystal Palace.

Our football programme, led by Matt Carrington, the Director of Football and Assistant Head (Sport), caters both for those who enjoy the keenly contested internal House League while also developing those who train with the youth teams at professional clubs.

Molly Holder is our dedicated girls’ football coach. Molly plays in the FA Women’s National league North and has recently transferred to Stoke City after a stretch at Middlesbrough. As well as benefiting from the experiences of a current league player, she is also working towards gaining the UEFA B coaching qualification.

All training sessions are led both by school staff and by professional coaches with a keen emphasis placed not only on developing the pupils’ talents but also on improving the quality of our coaching through ongoing professional development.
