What The Good Schools Guide says..
A happy school that offers an all-round education in the wilds of Derbyshire. It gives students time to be themselves, whilst opening their minds and nurturing their interests and enthusiasms. As the head girl told us: 'I'll be very sad to leave here. It's a special place.' A very down-to-earth, straightforward lot – polite, ultra-proud of their school and appreciative of the opportunities it...
What the school says...
Repton is large enough to achieve excellence in and out of the classroom but small enough for individuals to flourish. Pupils are encouraged to pursue their goals with self-belief and ambition and to seek out the areas in which they can excel, supported by committed staff and with outstanding facilities at their disposal.
Repton School pupils consistently achieve academic success at both GCSE and A Level. On average 95% of Repton sixth form leavers enter university, including Oxford and Cambridge.
Offering a traditional house system provides a secure, stable home and family environment within the school. The House is where pupils eat, sleep, work and live, where their most enduring relationships with peers and members of staff are born.
Repton holds many national and regional sporting titles and operates a policy of 'sport for all'. Repton was a recent winner of the Daily Telegraph School Sports Matters Award for 'Independent School of the Year'. The visual and performing arts departments also flourish and pupils enjoy an extensive range of extracurricular activities. The Music School includes a recording studio and improved practice and concert facilities. The school theatre has been redeveloped to create a stunning auditorium. Finally, the Michaelmas Term of 2013 saw the opening of the multi-million Science Priory opened by HRH The Duke of Kent.
Early 2015 will see the completion of a new P.E. and Maths building, which will replace an old 1960s building which has been demolished. ...Read more

In the past Repton produced sound but unexceptional exam grades, but these have been well and truly been put in the shade by recent results. In 2016, 53 per cent A*/A, 82 per cent A*-B grades at A level. GCSEs strong too – 59 per cent A*/A grades. Lots of maths and...
Special Education Needs
At Repton, we place a high value on our learning support both in terms of those with specific learning difficulties and the gifted and talented. Under the guidance of our Head of Learning Support, pupils are tested on entry and those pupils with mild learning difficulties are assisted with supplementary tuition in literacy and/or numeracy in the first year of the curriculum and then to GCSE. All pupils are able to access study skills programmes during evening support sessions. It is a vital part of our philosophy with regard to learning support that it continues throughout a pupil's time at Repton, and throughout the sixth form if necessary. Information on pupils' learning needs and associated strategies is shared with teaching staff, to promote an inclusive learning environment across the curriculum.
