Clubs, Societies & Activities | Epsom College

Our pupils want to be rounded, experienced and world-ready. We want to help them. That’s why each day, once lessons are over, all our pupils take part in our award-winning co-curricular programme. There are over 150 clubs, societies and activities to choose from, helping pupils to find like minds, new experiences and fresh challenges.

Breadth of Opportunity

We don’t pigeonhole our pupils, and we don’t want them to limit themselves. That’s why – in Years 7, 8 and 9 – the co-curricular programme is a combination of ‘free choice’ activities, and a Carousel of experiences that pupils engage with on rotation. 

Choices extend from the academic and cultural to the physical, ensuring that pupils stretch mind as well as muscle.

In the Senior years – Year 10 and above – students take on leadership roles. They work alongside younger pupils – for example, by directing plays – or they lead the academic societies.

And if a burning passion isn’t sated by what’s on offer, students can bid to start their own society. The Climate Committee, Amnesty International and the Diversity, Equality and Inclusivity Society are just a few recent examples.

Many of our clubs offer opportunities to compete in national competitions. The STEM Club, for example, competes each year in the UK Rocketry Competition, and races electric cars against schools, universities and youth groups at the Goodwood Race Course (pictured).

Award-Winning Choice and Opportunity

Our co-curricular programme has won multiple awards in recent years. Recognised by The Week magazine as ‘the best of the best’ within independent education, pupils are spoilt for choice with more on offer than they could ever reasonably expect to experience.
