Repton School Abu Dhabi expands its presence with the launch of new campus on Al Reem Island
 

New campus with state-of-the-art facilities will cater to pupils from Years 3-13

Abu Dhabi, UAE (February 21, 2018) –   Repton School Abu Dhabi announced a significant expansion of its presence in Abu Dhabi with the launch of a new campus occupying a 25,000 sq. meter plot on Al Reem Island with a range of world-class facilities for pupils and staff. The new campus, called Fry Campus, which soft launched in September 2017 is currently catering to pupils from Years 3-6. The school will offer 3 more year groups (up to Year 9) for the academic year starting September 2018 and will eventually provide specialist facilities for pupils from Years 3-13.

The new campus, which can accommodate up to 1800 pupils, will be a significant addition to the existing campus of Repton Foundation School, Rose Campus, which opened in September 2013.  In terms of capacity, both campuses will eventually serve 2300 pupils. The school is currently rated Band A which is a Very Good rating by ADEK. 

Fry Campus has an urban design which blends well with its surroundings. It is designed in a contemporary style with an innovative learning environment and has been carefully designed for each year group. It is spacious and bright while being illuminated by natural light from the atrium which is the focal point of the campus. It houses state-of-the-art facilities including a six lane 25-meter indoor swimming pool, 3 indoor sports halls covering badminton, basketball, handball, netball and volleyball, 30,000sqft shaded rooftop outdoor courts and a multipurpose hall for creative arts.

In addition, there is a sky-court/dining area, a stunning  4 level glass cylindrical central library, art centre, design & technology rooms, music halls, science laboratories, a dedicated 6th form centre and many educational learning spaces. The campus will support the commitment of the school to specialist teaching, with a focus on STEM subjects such as science and coding which have been taught by specialist teachers since junior school.

According to Khaled AlMheiri, Chairman, Evolvence Knowledge Investments, “We are very pleased to open this stunning new campus to support our vision of offering world-class education to children in Abu Dhabi. Since our entry into the Abu Dhabi educational landscape in 2013, Repton Abu Dhabi has steadily carved out a distinct reputation as a premier school in the emirate. The addition of Fry Campus will be a significant boost in consolidating Repton Abu Dhabi’s stature as a beacon of educational excellence.”

Mr. Mheiri added, “Our schools have an outstanding reputation for educational excellence and we aspire to compete with the best schools across the globe. As a leading educational group, we are committed to supporting the UAE leadership’s emphasis on education to prepare pupils for a knowledge based economy and help them maximise their potential through our network of reputed schools.”

“The opening of this new campus will give a tremendous boost to our mission to innovate in terms of our approach to teaching and learning by providing specialist facilities,” said Robert Relton, Principal, Repton School Abu Dhabi. “We have a curriculum that blends the best of the British schooling system and the vibrancy of UAE culture aligned to our vision to be the premier technology school in the UAE while being supported by our achievement of being an Apple Distinguished School. Our success has also been due to the strong support from the parent community. We look forward to creating a truly inclusive and supportive learning environment for our pupils while continuing to set high academic standards.”
