Margaret Morris writes "as we have heard a good deal about Rugby School in former Jottings, I thought perhaps you would like to hear a little about Repton, another of the large public schools of England. The first mention of Repton occurs in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle in the year 755, so you see Repton is a very ancient place indeed. . . . . . The school itself was founded by Sir John Porte, who found the remains of a dissolved Priory well adapted to the purpose. In 1857 Repton School commemorated its Tercentenery, . . . . . Repton now is a very little place, boasting only of one long, straggling street, lined either side with cottages, a few tiny shops, and the masters houses. . . . . it does not even have a station to itself. . . . . the "Sanatorium" is a commodious building only recently erected. It is the ambition of most of the boys to be only slightly ill and be ordered off to the San. Once there he considers himself in the lap of luxury, as the Matron is a general favourite and spoils them to their hearts content. . . . . . The great event of the school year is Speech Day, about June 22nd. Repton is very gay indeed just then, as all the parents, who are able, come down to see the boys act in their much rehearsed Greek, Latin or French plays, or receive a prize, if they are fortunate enough to get one. . . . . .
