Choosing a new school is an important, but sometimes difficult, task. We understand this, and – as parents ourselves – endeavour to make our Admissions process as stress-free as possible.
The information below, and on the following pages, takes you through the different stages in the admissions process for each specific year of entry; from initial registration through to assessments and scholarships.
In all instances, if you haven’t done so already, we strongly recommend visiting the College. Information on Open Mornings and other ways to take a look around can be found here.
11+ entry (Year 7)
We were excited to open the doors of our Lower School in September 2016, and are now in our fourth year of enjoying a full complement of Lower School pupils. The Lower School has a wonderful community feel and provides the perfect transition from Prep and Junior School into College life. The Lower School is for day pupils only.
13+ entry (Year 9)
We welcome a number of pupils to Epsom at 13+ (Year 9). Thanks to our House system, which starts for all day and boarding pupils in Year 9, in no time at all pupils are happy, settled, and immersed in College life; performing academically and competing with pride in a host of competitions and social events for their new House and their new friends.
16+ entry (Sixth Form)
Entering the Sixth Form is an exciting step, a time of new challenges and growing independence, with extensive opportunities for enrichment as well as a time for serious study. At Epsom College, the Sixth Form offers a broad range of learning opportunities that allow individuals to flourish and prepare for the demands of the wider world.
Epsom is a diverse and welcoming community. Around 20% of our pupils are international, making use of our excellent boarding facilities and all that an education at one of the UK’s top independent schools can offer.
We participate in an entrance test called UKiset – the UK Independent Schools’ Entry Test. UKiset is an adaptive online test, taken in English, designed to support admission into the UK independent education system
