Over the years, Repton Prep has built superb club, academy, county and regional links where pupils can pursue their sport further and access the performance pathways as they grow and develop. Repton has created unique conditions for player development through our commitment to club sport on the pupils’ doorstep, in addition to the exceptional School sports provision.
Repton Hockey Club, Repton Swimming Club and Repton Rackets Club all facilitate national club league opportunities for pupils who wish to join and who can perform at suitable club level. All three clubs are open to sportspeople outside Repton School, drawing in talent from across the region to enrich still further the training and competitive opportunities available to our pupils, amplifying their personal development in their chosen sport.
Furthermore, the ability to play in regional and national club leagues and competitions facilitates more mobility for a pupil within those sports, allowing them to compete with and against players outside any school-sport restrictions. Where appropriate, players can compete for adult teams, in mixed-gender teams where no such opportunity might exist in a schools-based competition, and in friendlies with teams and individuals who would otherwise have no cause to play with or against a school side.
Repton’s unique, multiple-club setup creates experiences and opportunities that most other schools cannot hope to match, and this ever-growing and developing facet of Repton sport can be life changing for its members.
