The Head’s Welcome

Timothy Hollis

Head of Senior School

It is my pleasure to wish you a very warm welcome to the Senior School; an energetic community within the Repton family that thrives on building successful relationships that encourage all to feel valued and to achieve their very best.

We live in exciting and fast changing times and this means that providing an outstanding, progressive and well-rounded education is more important than ever. Of course examination results matter and at Repton our pupils consistently achieve excellent results in all areas of the curriculum, giving them access to the top universities in the UK and overseas. However, this is just one aspect of a Repton education and pupils are supported to show ambition both within and beyond the classroom.

School should be fun, and happy children are more likely to be successful. It is our privilege and responsibility to nurture and develop the talents of our pupils, to broaden their interests and to develop their personal qualities. To do this we aim to foster confidence, tolerance, perseverance and integrity; to enhance communication skills; to embrace creativity; to encourage teamwork; and to promote an open-minded and outward-looking mentality preparing all to make a positive contribution to their wider community.

Boarding is at the heart of Repton and our aim is to provide for all our pupils the sort of caring, stimulating and happy environment which will enable them to grow into self-confident, active and highly successful young citizens of the future. The ethos and culture of the whole school as it grows and matures is based on the positive and caring attitude engendered by the boys and girls who work, live and play on the school campus

Embracing the traditions of a British education, enhanced by our international setting, we are shaped by our guiding principles as we look to the future. Repton is, and will remain, a forward-thinking school that enthusiastically embraces innovation and new opportunity.

Kind regards

Tim Hollis – Head of Senior School
