Epsom College was founded in 1855 by Dr John Propert to provide the orphans of impoverished medical families with free housing, clothing and schooling. The values of benevolence and excellence which guided his work find their modern-day expression in Epsom’s Service programme.
Our work in the community delivers an estimated £40,742 of social value each academic year, according to the Office for National Statistics. Over 200 Sixth Form students (65% of the total cohort) are involved in the programme, with 150 going out each week on placements in the local community. In a single academic year, our students give over 8,500 hours of service to those most in need.
“By spending time each week with individual children, Epsom's students have developed their language, social and emotional skills - and enhanced their emotional wellbeing”Nicky Mann, Co-Headteacher, Wallace Fields Infants School
