There are many aspects of Repton School that imply some antiquity. The church of St Wystan is visibly mediaeval in date, and the village itself has a market cross of similar date outside the school grounds. However the story of Repton goers back further. Repton village lies on the edge of the floodplain of the River Trent. In times past, rivers formed the major lifelines for settlements as they provided water, transport and fishing for food, all of which was essential for survival of a settlement. Repton also has another attractive feature: its geology.

The village is built on a band of gravels that overlie impermeable marls. Remains of flint tools and other were found a round the church, and cropmarks from the area around the village show Bronze Age ring ditches and barrow remains. Into the Roman period, whilst no direct evidence of Roman structures has been located, excavations in ands around the village have found scatters of Roman pottery. Other Roman finds from around the village include tile sherds and a supposed column base found in the churchyard in 1968. These would suggest the presence of a large, villa type building in the vicinity, although this cannot be confirmed. Common farmsteads dating from the Roman period were excavated as part of the large-scale excavations around Willington. The main archaeological significance of Repton, and certainly that which has attracted and continues to attract scholars, is the presence of the Anglo-Saxon monastery and church here.

The history of Repton in this period is closely linked to the Anglo-Saxon kingdom of Mercia. After the initial period of the Saxon migration and settlement, the new arrivals developed political territories in the form of kingdoms. The kingdom of Mercia originated at some point in the 6th century. The early Saxon period is reflected by the discovery at Willington of a small agricultural settlement of three sunken feature buildings, with associated pits and pottery.

Despite a reasonably large excavation, there was no evidence of post-hole building, but the great halls excavated at Catholme are a short distance upstream. There is no firm evidence of the Early Saxon period at Repton itself, and it is not until the Middle Saxon period that the focus of activity appears to shift across the river from Willington to Repton. During the Roman period this area appears to have been mainly a quiet agricultural area focused along the River Trent. The first reference to Repton is questionable and depends upon an interpretation of the Anglo-Saxon form of its name. It is recorded in the later Saxon period and Domesday as Hrepandum but an unlocated place name called Hrepingas occurs in various early charters. Taking as accurate the interpretation of Stenton, then Repton appears as an early possession of Peterborough Abbey in Cambridgeshire. Wulfhere of Mercia in AD664 has Repton on its list.
