Repton Bangalore opens in September 2018. In the same way as the renowned Repton School in the UK, established in 1557, is a leading independent school with high expectations and a tradition of excellence, we are aiming to bring the very highest possible educational standards to this booming city in India’s South. The brand new school is under construction on a 36 acre site situated in the Whitefield neighbourhood. This is a relatively new and bustling hub of development centred on local and ex-pat families often employed by global IT and electronics groups relocating to drive the country’s rapidly expanding technology sector. Bangalore is a large bustling metropolis transforming from Garden City to India’s Silicon Valley.
Currently in its initial phase of construction the attractive, modern, co-educational Primary School will open first along with an impressive, world-class Repton Sports facility. The Secondary phase and extensive boarding house will complete the K-12 campus by 2019. The school is also supported by 3 brand new bespoke pre-prep schools which are now operating across neighbouring suburbs. The curriculum will be EYFS then English National Curriculum leading ultimately into IGCSE and IB Diploma with the aim that students will progress to the world’s leading universities.
Our philosophy draws from 460 years of experience in education from the founding and partner school. The close interactive relationship with Repton UK is key and staff at both schools will enjoy shared training in addition to joint ventures to ensure the school’s reputation is enhanced and consolidated globally just as it is in other schools in the Repton family. The Bangalore school aims to be the best in class and build on Repton’s reputation for sports and performing arts, underpinned by a deep commitment to the individual needs and enthusiasms of each pupil.
An outstanding opportunity exists to become a part of one of the most prestigious international schools in India. With a start date of August 2018 we are looking to appoint an outstanding team of staff to join the Primary School throughout its opening phase and beyond. The successful candidates should be passionate about student learning and have the drive and commitment to inspire our brand new students and fellow colleagues as well as impressing present and potential parents. These professional attributes have to be combined with exceptional communication and classroom skills. The post will require genuine immersion in the evolving school community. Resilience and a determination to participate in a shared vision will be key. New appointees will work alongside, and be fully supported by, the Founding Headmaster and Head of Primary in tandem with other new staff initially from the UK and across the international schools community. Responsibilities will involve preparation and delivery of high performance teaching as well as welcoming numerous visitors to the new site.
