Ethos and Mission

Repton School seeks to educate all pupils with a firm set of values, which we also seek to uphold through all our many and varied activities.


To establish Repton School as the leading boarding and day school in the Middle East, with a reputation for excellence in all academic and extra-curricular activities.

Pupil Mission

The responsibility of Repton School is to prepare all its pupils for adulthood through the pursuit of the highest standards in academic studies and all the other varied activities that comprise pupil life in a boarding environment. In achieving this mission, the realisation of every pupil’s academic potential is always central, while acknowledging that the building of responsibility, consideration for others and self-esteem, so vital in adulthood, comes equally from participation in sport, music, drama, art and other extra-curricular activities.
