VISITING US 

We understand how important it is for your family to have a strong sense of what a Repton education has to offer.

Our school is enveloped in 55-acres of Derbyshire countryside and every corner provides a learning opportunity, from our fully interactive purpose-built classrooms, to the stream running through our bluebell wood – the very best way to experience Repton Prep is to visit us in person.
