There should be no barrier to an Epsom education. Our school was founded on the principles of ‘benevolence and excellence’ and we follow through on that promise today. We will endeavour to help any pupil who has the potential but not the financial means to join our College.
Driving Social Mobility
Epsom enjoys a long-standing partnership with social mobility charity, the Royal National Children’s SpringBoard Foundation. This charity helps to identify and support children of talent and ability from disadvantaged backgrounds who would benefit from a boarding education.
As a partner school, we have taken a number of SpringBoard students into our Sixth Form, covering all fees and providing full boarding. While it is true to say that these pupils gain from an Epsom education, the benefits are mutual and each student has brought a great deal to our school.
How to Apply
If you feel your circumstances qualify you for financial support, we would encourage you to read our guidance for means-tested bursaries.
Funds are limited, therefore we advise you to apply 6-12 months before your child enrols at Epsom. If your child is already a pupil here, and your financial circumstances have changed, please speak to the Bursar at the earliest opportunity.
Even if no more funds are available, or you don’t qualify for a bursary, there may be other means of support available.
If you require further information regarding bursaries then please contact the bursar.
Additional Sources of Help
