Take a Look Around

Fayrer is known as ‘the House on the hill‘ because it stands among the sports fields near the Cricket Pavilion and commands spectacular views towards London. Named in honour of Sir Joseph Fayrer, a leading doctor and reformer at the start of the last century, it is a boys’ day house. 

The House is located in what used to be the school Sanatorium (which explains its remote location away from the main school buildings). There is no hint of the building’s history today: Fayrer was refurbished in 2018.

Christopher Telfer-Mason, Housemaster

I have been Fayrer Housemaster since September 2021 and prior to that held the role of Head of Physics.

Along with teaching Physics, I am passionate about the STEM subjects and have recently achieved my Professional Doctorate in Education. One of the highlights of my time so far at Epsom College has been establishing a successful STEM Club, that enters a wide range of national and international competitions that have seen students achieve notable honours.

I am married to Charlotte who is a senior product developer for one of the UK’s biggest fashion retailers, and our first child, Leo, was born last summer. I am a keen sportsman and am actively involved in coaching rugby, football and tennis at the College. I still enjoy playing football and can usually be found cycling or running around the Surrey Hills.

Caroline Stimpson, Matron

I joined Epsom College as Fayrer Matron in 2023, having previously worked in the Boarding provision of a Special Needs school for the past 16 years. Fayrer is so friendly, welcoming and great to be a part of. It’s a pleasure to support the boy’s day to day, hearing their news and being able to work alongside a great team to bring out the best in all the boys.

Apart from spending time with family and friends, in my spare time I also enjoy crafts, cooking and reading.

Sean Cotton, Head of House 2023-24

My name is Sean Cotton. I joined the college in Year 9 and have loved every minute of it since. I am currently studying Physical Education, Business Management and Design Technology for my A-levels and I really enjoy them. I hope to further my education at university by studying Business and Finance. Outside of the classroom I keep myself busy, I play lots of sport and I proudly represent the College’s Football 1st XI as well as the Cricket 1st XI.

I have been appointed the Head of House for Fayrer for the 2023/2024 academic year, it is an aim of mine to ensure a warm and positive environment around the House to allow every single member to prosper in all areas of school life.
