Heritage and Identity

Repton School in Derbyshire, UK founded in 1557, is now 463 years old. The founder of the school, Sir John Port, was an enlightened and generous benefactor who provided for the establishment of Repton School, through a provision in his will. Little did he know that his generosity would provide a world class education for generations of pupils, and lead to the formation of a ‘family’ of international schools, spanning the United Arab Emirates, China, Singapore, Egypt, Bulgaria and Malaysia.

In partnership with CES, we are proud to establish Repton Malaysia as a truly world class school with roots in the UK and branches stretching across the globe. Repton Malaysia cherishes close links to Repton UK and with all Repton international schools around the world all of which embrace the same values and commitment to excellence.
