David Cook, Headmaster at Repton Dubai and Chief Education Officer of the Repton Family of Schools in the UAE, expressed his elation at this year’s results: “Reptonians, once again, have shown their dedication to achieving academic excellence and passion for Repton’s core values through their results. I’d like to thank our teachers and parents for their support and devotion to the development of our students in the classroom, helping to nurture well-rounded professionals of the future. Congratulations to this year’s graduating cohort for ending this chapter of their lives on a high note; I wish them the best of luck in the bright future that lies ahead for each and every one of them.”

Repton Dubai’s students have previously received acceptances from the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Columbia University, Johns Hopkins University, Stanford University, Wharton University of Pennsylvania, and more.

The graduating cohort is able to view their results on their Repton Passport, the region’s first K-12 blockchain-secured multimedia digital portfolio launched in June 2022 by the Repton Family of Schools. Students’ results are displayed along with their academic and extra-curricular accomplishments during their tenure at the school, as well as their very own digital year book. 

The Repton Passport has received an exciting new update with an in-built CV Builder. The innovative new feature enables students to seamlessly create multiple customised CVs, simplifying the process for university and job applications. These CVs include links to blockchain-secured credentials, which students can share using 1-click authentication, adding an extra layer of security and credibility. Furthermore, art scholars, art enthusiasts and digital leaders across Repton Dubai, Repton Abu Dhabi and Repton Al Barsha collaborated to create a unique & symbolic cover to commemorate the academic year 2022-2023.
