Admissions | Straight Forward Admissions Process | Repton School





Every application to Repton is treated individually and we aim to make the process straightforward for parents and stress-free for your child.

We guide your family through the process, in-keeping with the spirit of the Repton education to tailor details to individual needs, so that you will feel fully confident that you have made the right choice.

There are many points in which your child’s Repton journey can begin. Entry to Repton Prep starts from aged 3 years and to Repton at 13 years old. The first step of entry to Repton is to decide upon the entry point that is right for you and your family. 


“Repton School has a very balanced education. We were looking for a school that offered an elite sports program without compromising on academic education. Tilly has the opportunity to be part of an exceptional hockey program which is developing her as a player, whilst maintaining a high standard of education in the classroom.”

“Following up from our lovely visit in April, we finished our round of school visits two weeks ago and still feel that Repton is top of our list. No other school could compare in terms of the quality and structure of pastoral care and personal development, and only a few matched the offering in terms of sport. We would therefore like to move forward with our application.”
