About Our School

At St Wystan's, the family ethos is at the heart of our education and pastoral care. We are a co-educational independent school providing an inclusive all-round education for children from 2½ to 11. We are small (one form entry), non-selective and offer a truly unique school where children are genuinely happy and develop a love of learning within a family orientated community.

Set in the heart of the beautiful village of Repton in Derbyshire, we are proud to offer young people an extensive range of opportunities and experiences within a secure, vibrant and nurturing environment.

St Wystan's School is steeped in history and since its creation in 1926 it has continued to develop within its surroundings, becoming both traditional in its philosophy and forward thinking in its approach to children's education. In September 2020 we were delighted to become part of the Repton School family, giving us the benefits of being part of a larger organisation, whilst allowing us to maintain our individual ethos and identity.

Our Vision and Values

St Wystan’s strives to develop the whole child and provides education that extends far beyond our curriculum. Our family school has a very special atmosphere; a calm, secure, happy environment based on respect for each other and our environment. Children are always actively encouraged to think for themselves. We seek to equip children with the skills, attitudes and experiences which will carry them through happy, successful, and fulfilling lives, whilst encouraging the importance of sport, music, art and drama. We have the highest possible aspirations for our staff and pupils.
