Boarding at Epsom College
Epsom College has been committed to providing a boarding school education since it was founded in 1855. It is that commitment, combined with its broad curriculum and outstanding pastoral care, which continues to give the school its distinctive ethos today.
The boarding environment at Epsom encourages pupils to live their lives to the full in as many spheres as possible, allowing individuality and independence to flourish.
Life in a boarding school is challenging and fun and for boys and girls to reach their full potential, they need guidance, support and encouragement. Epsom offers a unique experience of community living, which builds an awareness of the needs of others and a tolerance of difference and diversity which, as they move up through the year groups, prepares them for life at university and beyond.
The Houses are the focal point of the pupils' lives at the College. Each Boarding House has a Housemaster or Housemistress, who has overall responsibility for the pupils in their care. They live in accommodation within the House, and are assisted by a team of experienced and dedicated resident tutors, providing boarders with a warm, homely and supportive atmosphere. Overall, some 90 per cent of Epsom College staff live on the campus.
All Boarding Houses have excellent facilities and benefit from a continuous process of refurbishment. They are designed to be homely and comfortable and also offer up-to-date facilities such as Wi-Fi, IT suites, games rooms, modern furniture and fitted kitchens.
For those who stay at weekends, a wide range of activities is provided, from themed dinner parties and theatre visits to trips to central London, which is only 30 minutes away by train.
Boarders have access to a well-staffed Medical Centre, which is manned 24 hours a day by trained nurses. Doctors from a local practice hold surgeries at the College five mornings a week. Boarders also have access to a school counselling service and the College Chaplain.
Busy family lives and the increasing need for working parents to travel means that a boarding school, which provides a stable educational environment and a relaxed and friendly home from home, is invaluable. At Epsom, families can choose a boarding option that suits their lifestyle, with either full or weekly boarding available.
