Repton School review

The Repton School, founded in 1557, is a prestigious British institution with a long history. The school appointed a new headmaster, Mark Semmence, in 2019, who brings a wealth of experience in teaching and school management, as well as a background in business. Under his leadership, Repton School is expected to introduce new perspectives and innovations to its overall policies. As an established public school, Repton School preserves the traditions of British education while also adapting to the modern era, combining innovative contemporary elements with a rich educational legacy.

Repton School Introduction

Nearly 500 Years of Quality Education: One of the 24 British Public Schools

Repton School is one of the 24 public schools in the UK that were historically elite schools. The school has nurtured outstanding alumni who are spread across the globe, including Arthur James Mason, former Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, and Robert Owen, founding Chairman of the Securities and Futures Commission in Hong Kong. Repton School has traditionally been an all-boys school, but in response to changing times, it began admitting girls in the 1970s and eventually transitioned to a co-educational institution in the 1990s. The school currently has approximately 600 students, with a balanced gender ratio.

Maintaining the Traditional House Dining System

Repton School follows a house system where students in the same boarding house dine together, fostering a sense of belonging and camaraderie. Another notable aspect that highlights the strong sense of community at Repton is that even day students are assigned to different boarding houses to participate in activities with boarding students, aiming to create a sense of unity. Additionally, the school offers Saturday School, where all students participate in various activities and internal competitions after completing morning classes on Saturdays.

Joining a Boarding School from an Early Age

Repton School has a selective admissions process, with only 14% of international students accepted. Year 9 serves as the entry point for the Senior School, and it is recommended that interested families submit their applications at least 18 months in advance. Some parents even arrange for their children to attend Repton School's affiliated preparatory school, Foremarke Hall, from Year 7 to increase their chances of admission to Repton School. This makes Repton School one of the few high-quality secondary schools with an attached preparatory division.

UK Education: Is Archaeology Becoming a New Favourite?

Archaeology: More than Just the Study of Artefacts When discussing archaeology, people often associate it with terms like "artefact conservation" and "history." However, Vincent, an education consultant, discovered differences in elective courses offered in the second and third years of archaeology programmes at various UK universities. He identified four main categories: Historical Focus: This is the most typical archaeology programme that combines history and social sciences with some scientific methods to understand the development of humanities, society, and economy in ancient Greece, ancient Rome, China, the Mediterranean, the UK, and other regions. "The historical periods studied mainly range from ancient history and mediaeval history to the 19th century. Represented by prestigious universities such as Nottingham and Liverpool." Social Sciences: Archaeology programmes in this category are a blend of archaeology, ancient history, sociology, economics, anthropology, philosophy, and museum studies.
