Repton has been a significant place in the UK for 1500 years, notably as a seat of Anglo-Saxon kings.
Repton School’s founder, Sir John Port, had an earnest wish to leave the world a better place. We enjoy a magnificent heritage because each successive generation has sought to enrich the schools and to make them relevant for that age. Reptonians grow to appreciate that our heritage is ultimately ambitious and forward-looking.
We celebrate this aspect of our past, and both campuses at Repton Abu Dhabi are named after alumni : our Foundation School (Rose Campus) is named after Sir Christopher Rose, and the Junior and Senior School (Fry Campus) remembers C.B. Fry.
Likewise, we encourage pupils to think just as much about their own legacy.
Repton’s heritage now spreads across the world with the growing family of schools which allows all Reptonians to enjoy a truly global perspective in their education. Old Reptonians are kept in contact with each other and the School through the OR Society.

Our Extra Curricular Activities (ECAs) at Repton offer a wide variety of clubs catered to the needs of our Repton family, there is something for everyone. ECAs provide the students with further learning and experiences in addition to their academic curriculum. They create a fun and exciting environment for the after-school community.
What are the benefits of your child participating in ECAs? Repton’s array of activities will enhance your child’s personal development in both aspects socially and academically. We are an ear to the students and listen to their needs. With the voice of the students, Repton continues to design and deliver a successful, personalised and enjoyable program suitable for all.
At Rose campus, we have a variety of active ECAs from Multi Sports to Yoga and Mini Movers. We also offer more classroom based activities that are an extension to the daily curriculum, for example Finger Gym, Arts & Crafts, Storytelling and Construction.
At Fry campus, bring out your child’s inner actor/actress at the Drama Club; discover and design in the sewing class or become the next Picasso at Art Club. Students can extend their languages in Arabic and French, develop patience and increase their cognitive skills in Chess or become a journalist and write for the Repton Times.
Across both campuses, we also work closely with two external providers; Neptunes and Gulf Star. Collectively with our PE department, we offer students the chance to learn and develop new skills in a variety of sports such as Swimming, Karate, Gymnastics, Football, Basketball, Netball, Tennis and Dance. We compete competitively versus other schools in the Adissa league and also allow students to take part socially in inter house tournaments as well.
