The 720 boys and girls at Epsom College, together with the staff, the great majority of whom live within the College grounds, form an integrated community whose strength lies in the emphasis it places on discipline, tolerance and understanding of others.
The close-knit House System is an integral part of College life. All pupils are members of a House, under the charge of a Housemaster or Housemistress, ably supported by a team of tutors, always available for pupils to discuss any concerns. Regular monitoring of progress and the setting of clear targets are key features of the tutorial process. This system ensures that pupils receive the guidance and support they need in a happy and encouraging community.
Additional support is provided by Housekeepers, a Medical Centre staffed by qualified resident nurses, the College Chaplains and a School Counsellor.
Epsom's long established tradition of educating day and boarding pupils within the framework of a boarding week gives better opportunity to care for teenagers than within the limitations of a day school. Pupils develop respect for others, personal independence and self-esteem. Weekly Boarding allows a regular link between home and school for those families with busy lives.
