When you first arrive at our friendly prep school, you will be struck by the warmth and welcome from our staff and children, you will quickly realise that St Wystan’s is a family school with a very special atmosphere; a calm, secure, happy environment based on respect for each other and our environment. Located in the beautiful village of Repton, our co-educational school is ideally situated for families from the local areas.
What are the vital ingredients for a successful education? Above all, children need to feel safe and happy, free from hot-housing or fear of making mistakes, and confident in the knowledge that they can always do better next time. Each boy and girl has different strengths and weaknesses which need to be identified and supported, whether in the classroom, the music recital room or on the games field. Children are always actively encouraged to think for themselves and to challenge accepted wisdom.
Therefore, a St Wystan’s education extends far beyond our curriculum. Through the significant investment of time and effort made by our experienced, dedicated staff, we seek to equip children with the skills, attitudes, values and experiences which will carry them through happy, successful and fulfilling lives.
We would be delighted to welcome you and your children to ‘where children come first’.

Safeguarding Statement

St Wystan’s School and Nursery is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Child Protection Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.
We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism. 
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mrs Karan Hopkinson (Headteacher). Our Deputy DSL is Miss Rachel Haynes (Early Years Coordinator).
