Open Mornings are the best way to see Epsom. You will be shown around the College by your own personal pupil guide, taken into departments, Houses, the Lower School and any other areas you wish to see.

Senior staff and Admissions colleagues will be available throughout the morning to talk in more detail about the College and answer any questions you have.

College Tours

Smaller than an Open Morning, a College Tour allows you to see Epsom on a normal working day. Each event is limited to a small number of families.

What to expect from your tour

Your morning begins with a welcome from our Head, Mark Lascelles and the Head of Year. You will then be taken on a tour of the College by a pupil relevant to the school year you’re considering.

You will be taken around the College grounds and departments – but please bear in mind that this is a normal working day at the College. If you would like to see departmental showcases, you may wish to consider attending one of our termly Open Mornings.

Your tour should take around an hour. Afterwards, refreshments will be available and you can chat with senior staff and our Admissions Team.

We also have a virtual tour, to give anyone who is unable to visit the College in-person the chance to look around our grounds, facilities and inside some of the buildings.

For the best experience, please view it in the YouTube app on your phone or tablet. Remember to set playback to the highest quality – so you can enjoy our estate in all its glory!

Any Questions?

What's the difference between an Open Morning and a College Tour?

Open Mornings

Open Mornings are the flagship events, with departmental showcases, bigger crowds and a talk from the Head. They take place on Saturday morning. 

You will get to see: buildings, classrooms, departmental showcases, sports facilities, our grounds, the Lower School and a day or boarding house.

College Tours

College Tours are smaller affairs, that take place on weekday mornings throughout the academic year. You will see the school on a normal working morning – with lessons rather than showcases and no formal presentation from the Head.

When's the best time to see the College?

Year 7 & Year 9 applications

You’ll need to register by the October of your child’s Year 6. Therefore we recommend looking around when your child is in Year 5 (sometimes Year 4 if you’re really keen).

We would recommend coming with your child so that they also get a feel for the College and our pupils.

Year 12 applications

The best time to see the College if you’re considering applying to our Sixth Form will be in Year 10, as the registration deadline is mid-October in Year 11.

Should I bring my child?

Absolutely! Whichever school your child ultimately joins, it’s important that they will be happy there. We believe that they also settle best when they feel they have been involved in making the choice. 

Tours and Open Mornings are tailored to prospective pupils, so we hope they will get plenty from the visit.

We provide each family with their own pupil guide, who will be close in age to your child. We hope this means that your child will feel able to ask them questions, speak to them more easily and gain valuable insights into life at Epsom.
