Epsom College was inspected in February 2019 and received a glowing report. The ISI Inspectors commented that Epsom pupils “demonstrate commitment to excellence in all areas of learning; they do not settle for mediocrity and express confidence in the culture of the school that inspires them to be the best they can be.”

ISI inspections judge schools to be either ‘unsatisfactory’, ‘sound’, ‘good’ or ‘excellent’ and then make recommendations as to where schools can further improve. They focus on pupils’ academic and other achievements, and their personal development.

Across all measures, inspectors judged Epsom to be ‘excellent’. They made no recommendations for improvement; an achievement that is extremely rare.

“It is very rare for a school to receive a report without recommendations,” comments Jay Piggot, Headmaster. “As the Lead Inspector made clear in her feedback, the ISI team may only make recommendations where there is clear evidence of a need for improvement and no such evidence was found at Epsom.”
