This role represents a unique and extremely exciting opportunity to lead one of the most vibrant and successful Prep Schools in the UK.

The Governing Body and the Headmaster of Repton School seek an experienced and inspirational school leader to be the Head of Repton Prep from September 2022.

Repton Prep benefits from being a member of the growing, national and international family of Repton Schools; it is an acknowledged centre of excellence with an ethos rooted in a commitment to deliver a modern, global and truly holistic education.

Outstanding teaching, first-class facilities and the provision of superb pastoral care, ensure that all pupils are able to flourish in a supportive environment which fosters the spiritual, moral, emotional and physical development of each individual child.

Academic standards are high and creative subjects, including Music, Art, Drama and Design, are considered a vital part of an all-round education. The school has a national profile in Sport, particularly in football, hockey and swimming. Pupils flourish both in and out of the classroom and they develop the skills, qualities and values that will lead to a successful life. ​Whilst Repton Prep is undoubtedly modern in terms of practice and outlook, the ​traditional values of encouraging pupils to aim high whilst showing respect for all remain of utmost importance.

Applications are encouraged from experienced and successful candidates whose values and ambitions align with the culture and ethos of Repton. Details of the School and of the experience, qualities and skills needed to take on this important Headship are set out in the candidate brief.
