We are delighted that you have chosen to take a look at the website for St Wystan's School and Nursery. I hope that the information that you find will be informative as well as giving an indication of our aim to maximise the potential of each of our pupils.

Set in the heart of the village of Repton, St Wystan's provides an inclusive all-round education for children from 2 ½ to 11. In being a coeducational Independent School we are proud to offer young people an extensive range of opportunities and experiences within a secure and happy environment.

At St Wystan's the family ethos is at the heart of our education and pastoral care. Although small in number, both in school roll and class sizes, our school produces pupils of exceptional talent, brimming full of confidence, who have been treated very much as individuals.

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.

Within this website you will find information which will give you a flavour of our school. I would encourage you to make a personal visit to experience the school for yourself and to truly appreciate the unique aspects of our education. You will always be assured a warm welcome.

Philip Soutar, Headmaster


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 Mr Phil Soutar (Headteacher). Our Deputy DSL is Miss Rachel Haynes (Early Years Coordinator).
