Children of Lower School age – 11-13-year-olds in Years 7 and 8 – require boarding provision that is tailored to their unique academic, social and development needs. We believe this is best delivered by a school that already provides dedicated, high-quality boarding provision to this age group.

Boarding in Years 7 and 8.

Following careful consideration of local prep schools with close links to Epsom, and especially those with an ethos and sense of community similar to our own, we are delighted to announce that pupils looking for boarding places in Years 7 and 8 will be offered this expert provision at Feltonfleet School.

Feltonfleet.

Feltonfleet is a long-standing partner of Epsom, and has offered weekly boarding to children in Years 7 and 8 for a number of years.

They know from experience what works best for children of this age, and have built a notable reputation for the high quality education and pastoral care they provide.

Benefits to your child.

There remains a clear expectation that children taking up the opportunity of boarding at Feltonfleet would join Epsom College as a weekly boarder in Year 9. The benefits to each child are clear:

  • they are supported by the kind of specialised boarding provision appropriate to their age and development
  • they remain closely connected to Epsom throughout Years 7 and 8 thanks to our dedicated transition programme
  • they, ultimately, have a natural pathway to joining the College at the start of Year 9.

Further information.

The Admissions Department is able to provide more details on this incentive, and the recruitment process for families considering 11+ entry to Epsom and who are keen to explore the option of weekly boarding.
