The Science and Design Technology and Computing departments are at the centre of academic life at Repton School Dubai. With world-class facilities, expert leadership and multiple opportunities for learning beyond the curriculum, it is no surprises that these departments consistent achieve outstanding results.
The science department is housed in 12 purpose built laboratories which each contain both a classroom and practical area. Fully kitted out with interactive touch screens and Apple TV and iPads, these laboratories employ the latest technology to aid learning. However, we also believe that practical experimentation is at the heart of Science and therefore there is a heavy emphasis on students completing experiments themselves. We have dedicated technical staff on hand to facilitate ‘hands-on’ learning at every opportunity, which is supported by the six well-stocked prep rooms, brimming with cutting-edge data loggers and sensors, as well as more traditional laboratory apparatus.
The Design Technology & Computing department occupies its own suite of computer rooms and workshops in the main senior school building. Facilities include traditional woodwork machinery alongside computer-aided design and 3D printing capabilities. Learning takes place both inside and outside the classroom with students given the opportunity to use the skills and knowledge gained in their lessons to compete in regional and global competitions. Recently teams from the Senior School have travelled to the UAE and the World finals for the ‘F1 in Schools Competition’ and the ‘Land Rover 4×4 in Schools Competitions’. We are delighted with access to these world class competitions and opportunities, and also thrilled about over their successes- they have become accustomed to bringing home trophies after each competition!
