Repton Prep recognises the importance of getting young people involved in sport, whatever their ability and whatever their chosen discipline. We actively encourage pupils to participate at the best level they can and aim to equip every pupil with confidence and enthusiasm to enjoy sport and an active lifestyle both in school and beyond.
We field squads in the major sports of football, hockey and cricket for boys and girls, with second, third, fourth and even fifth teams formed where possible. However, it is equally important to provide a wide range of different sporting opportunities for all our pupils, ranging from athletics and kayaking to fencing and orienteering.
Repton Prep has a long tradition of sporting excellence and is passionately committed as ever to maximising pupils’ potential at whatever level they play. We have a strong reputation both locally and nationally for the quality of our sports teams. Many national trophies across our major sports have been won in recent years.
Pupils benefit a great deal from the exercise, challenge and fun that a really full sports programme provides. The PE Department has five specialist staff who teach right across the school and are regularly assisted by visiting professional coaches. In Years 7 and 8 we run an extensive fixture list during all three terms in our major sports (see below). In Years 4, 5 and 6 we run two teams per age group most weeks. Other competitive sports on offer at Repton Prep include Swimming, Athletics and Tennis. Parents are encouraged to support our teams when playing in 'away' matches and events.
Our major sports throughout the year are:
|Michaelmas Term||Lent Term||Summer Term|
Cricket (boys and girls)
Tennis (girls Year 7 and Year 8)
