Murrell House

Murrell House is the newest House at Epsom College, opening its doors for the first time in September 2017. It is a day House for girls aged 13-18, and adjoins Fayrer House.

Reonnovation to the old Fayrer building began in the summer of 2017. The building is being modernised and remodelled to make way for two new day houses: Murrell and Fayrer. By September 2020, 60 day girls and 70 day boys will occupy the two Houses in the renovated building. The programme of work will cost £3.6 million - an investment that ensures you will enjoy state-of-the-art facilities.

Murrell House has been named in honour of one of the College's pioneering female figureheads: Dr Christine Murrell. Dr Murrell represented the Medical Women's Federation at the first Epsom College Conjoint Committee meeting in 1932. She was the first woman to sit on this committee, and the first woman to be elected to the council of the British Medical Association and appointed to the General Medical Council.

Kate Hancock will be the first Murrell Housemistress, having taught at Epsom College since 2015. Kate is a mathematics teacher, a former tutor in Rosebery House, and is Head of Core Curriculum for the Sixth Form with overall responsiblity for EPQ, Global Perspectives and Young Enterprise.

Kate is married to Christopher, a corporate financier who is also an ordained priest. They have three children and live close to Epsom, in the nearby village of Headley. Kate enjoys emtertaining, musical theatre, pilates, quizzes and playing backgammon.
