Admissions Policy

Deciding on the right school for your child is very important, and we believe that a personal visit to meet our Admissions team is invaluable. We are very happy to welcome prospective parents to find out more about the school and we are happy to arrange mutually convenient appointment times. If you would like to find out more, please contact the Director of Admissions, NAME on TELEPHONE or email admissions@reptonmalaysia.ma


Repton Malaysia is a selective school. Selection is based upon academic merit which is assessed through an entry assessment, references from the candidate’s previous school and in many cases, an interview at the school. Our selection process is designed to identify pupils who are able to benefit from our balanced and well-rounded education and to make a positive contribution towards the life of the School.

Repton Malaysia is open for applications in all age groups. The Junior School provides high quality primary education for children aged 3 – 11 based upon the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) of the English National Curriculum and the English National Curriculum Key Stages 1 and 2. The Senior School welcomes pupils from age 11-18 following the English National Curriculum leading to IGCSEs at 16 years of age and either International Baccalaureate Diploma or A levels at 18.

Applicants for admission should register as soon as possible as we are experiencing high demand for places. The registration form is to be found on this website.


A breakdown of Repton School Fees is available upon request.


Repton Malaysia encourages applications from candidates with a diverse range of backgrounds. This enriches our community and is vital in preparing our pupils for today’s world.

We are committed to equal treatment for all, regardless of a candidate’s sex, race, ethnicity, religion, disability, sexual orientation or social background.


Repton Malaysia does not discriminate in any way regarding entry. The School welcomes pupils with special educational needs providing our learning support department can offer them the support that they require. We welcome pupils with disabilities. However, we strongly advise parents of children with special educational needs or physical or mental disabilities to discuss their child’s requirements with the school before he/she attends the entry assessment so that we can advise whether we can make reasonable adjustments in order to provide adequately for your child. Parents should provide a copy of an educational psychologist’s report or a medical report if they have one. The School will discuss thoroughly with parents and their medical advisers the adjustments that can reasonably be made for the child if he/she becomes a pupil at Repton Malaysia.


The aim of the process is to identify ability and potential. Repton Malaysia is looking for well-rounded pupils with a genuine interest in education in the broadest sense of the word, with interests that stretch beyond the confines of the academic curriculum. The School is proud of its international reputation for music, drama, art, debating, community activities and sport. The school will provide many extra-curricular activities, all of which are important in developing a well-balanced, confident individual.

No specific preparation for entry assessment is necessary and all candidates start on an equal footing, with identical opportunities to display their academic aptitude and extra-curricular skills.

All entry assessments are age appropriate and designed to identify potential. A parent interview with the Headmaster and/or Director of Admissions is also a condition of entry for all.

For all candidates, once a place is offered the timescale for accepting the place will be as stated in the offer letter.

The dates for the assessment process will be agreed with the parents for all entrants. For entry in to our Early Years FS1 and FS2, the children will be assessed in small groups.

A small administrative charge is made for entry assessment.


Repton Malaysia welcomes applications from overseas pupils. 

For details of the entry assessment process for pupils coming from outside Malaysia, please contact our Director of Admissions, NAME on Phone or email admissions@reptonmalaysia.ma
If an overseas applicant is sitting GCSEs or IGCSEs they would be expected to achieve a minimum requirement of 5 B grades to enter our International Baccalaureate Diploma programme. 

16+ entry for pupils for whom English is not their first language are assessed as above and have an additional paper in English. 

Please see our website for further details.


Most siblings join us at Repton Malaysia. However, admission is not automatic and there may be occasions where the School judges that a sibling is likely to thrive better in a different academic environment. 


In order to cope with the high academic and social demands of Repton Malaysia pupils must be competent and confident English speakers. Tuition in English as an Additional Language (EAL) can be arranged at the parent’s expense. 


Repton Malaysia does not select for entry on the basis of religious belief, and it offers the opportunity for pupils to practise their own faiths.


Copies are on the School’s website and will be made available to parents as part of the admissions process and the School’s Terms and Conditions to be found on this website.


The School hopes that parents and pupils will not have any complaints about the School’s admissions process, though if they do they should write to the Director of Admissions initially.
