A School in England: The History of Repton is the last book by the respected historian and Old Reptonian Hugh Brogan. This final masterwork is the fruit of twenty-five years' research, completed shortly before Brogan's death in 2019, using hitherto untapped sources (such as the Fisher family papers) and delivered with his trademark acid wit and astute observation. Here is a clear and invaluable account of how Repton evolved from grammar school to major public school, acquiring a national reputation and sending out boys across the globe in quest of fortune or adventure, as well as producing such sporting greats as C. B. Fry, Harold Abrahams and 'Bunny' Austin. Woven through with strands of drama, humour and pathos, A School in England is the first scholarly history of Repton for many years and the first by an award-winning historian. As well as providing a fascinating record for members of the Repton community, Brogan's highly readable history is a vital resource for those engaged in the debate over private schooling, and for those reflecting more generally on the purpose of education and how it has changed over the centuries.

The sixth and easily the best history of Repton, Brogan's last work ranks alongside the very best public school histories... A School in England represents an elegant finale for a life of first-class scholarship, as entertaining as it is informative. Not least amongst its qualities is the fact that reading it will reward the general reader as much as the Reptonian. -- John Plowright * Conference and Common Room * Those looking to explore a rich slice of Derbyshire - and national - life from Mercia to almost the present day could hardly do better than to place themselves in Brogan's capable hands. -- John Plowright * Derbyshire Life * Brogan's research ... is immense, his observations are astute and objective, and his text is littered with delightful phrases and sharp wit. -- Malcolm Tozer * History of Education *
