Epsom College has a long tradition of excellence. It allows boys and girls aged 13 to 18 to thrive and develop in a stimulating environment.
Set on a beautiful 80 acre campus, the impressive Victorian buildings complement the recent additions, which are very well equipped and resourced. St Luke's Chapel stands at the very heart of the thriving community of over 720 students.
Two current M4 (Year 9) students outline their reasons for choosing Epsom College in the accompanying video.
For over 150 years, Epsom has consistently delivered a first class education and that continues today within a modern and enlightened community, where passion and commitment work side by side to inspire and enrich.
With its medical heritage, the College has a worldwide reputation for excellence in the sciences and that reputation now extends to all areas of its broad academic curriculum. Everyone at Epsom is encouraged to achieve their maximum potential.
For the last five years Epsom has consistently achieved high value added scores at both GCSE and A Level. Value added is a measure of the outcomes achieved in relation to the baselines on entry. It is a measure of the positive input that Epsom College makes to each individual boy and girl.
The close-knit House System is an integral part of College life. All of the Houses have a Housemaster or Housemistress, together with their family, living alongside students, creating a family environment. This helps to ensure that pupils get the guidance and support they need to achieve their potential in a happy and encouraging community. Ably supported by an experienced team of Tutors, Housemasters and Mistresses are responsible for all aspects of a student's welfare and progress at Epsom, whether it be academic, extracurricular, social or personal.
‘Something for everyone' would best sum up the College's unrivalled co-curricular programme. Outstanding facilities, coupled with dedicated, experienced teachers, provide students with a wealth of opportunities to discover new interests and excel in areas in which they have talent.
Aside from the 25 plus sports available on a regular basis, pupils can also get involved in music, art, drama, design technology and textiles, as well as a range of academic societies, debating, community and voluntary work.
The College also has one of the largest Combined Cadet Forces (CCF) in the country, providing an opportunity for pupils to work towards their bronze, silver or gold Duke of Edinburgh's Award.
Epsom has a unique location, nestling in the heart of the Epsom Downs, home of the famous Derby, yet only 10 minutes walk from Epsom Town Centre.
