Robinson | Epsom College

Robinson House was founded in 1968 and is named after Dr Henry Robinson, treasurer of the College between 1952 and 1960. It is one of four boys’ day houses at Epsom, and is led by Housemaster Paul Gillespie (who is also the School’s Senior Housemaster).

The House, which is spread over three floors, backs onto the College playing fields and the Chapel Astro – this is particularly popular with the boys as it makes it easy to get out and enjoy some sport.

Paul Gillespie, Housemaster

I have been at Epsom College since 2004 and was Head of Economics and Business Studies before becoming Robinson Housemaster in 2016. I love my job as Robinson Housemaster. There is such a variety of individuals in the House, all with their own strengths and they have a continuous ability to surprise you. Everyone is proud to be part of the Robinson team where we look to share and celebrate everyone’s success.

I studied Economics at Exeter University and graduated in 1996 before completing my PGCE at Warwick University. Before arriving at Epsom, I taught at Sir William Ramsay School in Buckinghamshire and New Zealand International College in Auckland.

My first sporting passion is football – I have an interest in many sports and keep fit with regular running, swimming, yoga and playing golf.

I also enjoy reading, a game of chess and playing the guitar when time allows. I am married to Sarah, who teaches in the junior school at City of London Freemen’s School. We have two daughters, Anna, who leaves Epsom this summer for university, and Daisy, who is currently studying for her GCSEs at the College.

Tracey Pointing, Matron

I have worked at Epsom College for the past 26 years and love being the Matron of Robinson House. The camaraderie between the staff and the boys is second to none. Robinson House is a positive, inclusive, diverse and happy environment!

I have been a member of my local rugby club, Sutton & Epsom, for nearly 30 years and I also enjoy my weekend breaks pursuing my love for Historical Britain.

Fin Stirling, Head of House 2024-25

My name is Fin, I am Head of House for Robinson. I am currently studying Maths, Economics and Physics, with aspirations to study mechanical engineering at university. I have recently completed an EPQ on how we can best support dyslexic students in education.

I represent the College in 1st team tennis, whilst also playing rugby and football. I am proud to have been a peer mentor and part of the STEM team this year.

I have been at Epsom College since Year 7 and joined Robinson in M4. I have had an incredible time in Robinson, and am honoured to have been appointed as the new Head of House. My aim as Head of House is to create a supportive and welcoming environment for all students to prosper.
