Repton School occupies a number of buildings within the village, some historic (the 12th century Augustinian Priory forms the heart of the school), some much more modern and purpose built. Drive through here any weekday during term time, and there are almost certain to be students walking around the village, looking smart in their uniforms, carrying books and folders; each looking every inch the academic!
Repton caters for around six hundred students aged between 11 - 18 and organised into 10 houses, which become their term time homes and families; particularly for the Boarders.
The school prides itself on it's academic standards claiming that high expectations coupled with rigorous monitoring and quality teaching, will enable children to reach levels beyond their expectations. Alongside academic achievement are opportunities to excel in the arts, sport, music and drama; to become a rounded person and find the niche in which they will enjoy success.
The chapel is also an integral aspect of school life, promoting Christian values of service and giving the opportunity for the school to celebrate the Repton community.
