We are proud of our academic reputation, and we celebrate our students’ personal successes. A*s are great for league tables, but the real value of an Epsom education can be found in the student who gets a grade or two higher than they ever thought possible, or the pupil who is supported from lacking confidence in a subject to becoming passionate about it.
Over the last 10 years, we have seen a steady rise in academic standards at Epsom. Without resorting to gaming the system, becoming highly selective or culling out students post GCSE, the College has strengthened its academic culture, focused on the quality of teaching as well as supporting students extremely effectively to achieve their very best.
Of particular note are the College’s value-added results. These are a tribute to the hard work of both students and staff and demonstrate how we take our pupils further than they could have imagined. In the last published tables from the Department for Education, Epsom was in the top 1% of all UK schools for the value we add to a child’s education.
- 59% of all exams graded A*-A
- 86% of all exams graded A*-B
- Over a third of all students achieved a clean sweep of A*-As
