Foremarke School is soon to become Repton Al Barsha in a rebranding ‘transition’ that will create a third Repton school in the UAE. The other UAE schools in the ‘Repton Family’ are Repton Dubai and Repton Abu Dhabi.

The rebranding will coincide with physical upgrades to the Al Barsha campus and will be fully implemented by the start of the 2021-22 academic year. This lengthy transition to the new brand has been planned to ensure “both parents and students are acclimated with comfort and ease” said a school spokesperson.

The news comes soon after the school announced its expansion into Senior School years. Originally planned as a classic British ‘prep’ school, Repton Al Barsha, as Foremarke School will now be known, is now open to Year 8 and will open Year 9 in the 2021-22 academic year. Eventually, the school will grow to offer the iGCSE curriculum to Year 11 and A-Levels for Years 12-13. We are told that the school believe that all current Repton Al Barsha students are ‘positioned on the same academic trajectory’ as others within the Repton Family of Schools.

Zoe Woolley, Headmistress of Repton Al Barsha had this to say of the change,

“We are overwhelmingly excited to welcome parents and students on this new journey of Repton Al Barsha, and promise to continue providing the same level of outstanding education that safeguard students’ successful path to a fulfilling professional and personal career’.

David Cook, Chief Education Officer of the Repton Family of Schools and Headmaster of Repton School Dubai congratulated the Repton Al Barsha team on the change.

“I would like to congratulate Repton Al Barsha for its pioneering transformation. While the school has always been part of the Repton Family of Schools, it is a proud moment for us to officially welcome another Repton-branded school in the UAE.
"We want to show gratitude towards our parents and students for their continued support in this endeavour and want them to rest assured that Repton Al Barsha will continue to provide the same level of exceptional education to which they are accustomed. Furthermore, we are delighted to share additional positive prospects in the coming few days.”
