Murrell House opened its doors for the first time in September 2017. It is a day House for girls aged 13-18, and adjoins Fayrer House.

Reonovation to the old Fayrer building took place in the summer of 2017. The building was modernised and remodelled in a £3.6million project to make way for two new day houses: Murrell and Fayrer.

Murrell House has been named in honour of one of the College’s pioneering female figureheads: Dr Christine Murrell.

Dr Murrell represented the Medical Women’s Federation at the first Epsom College Conjoint Committee meeting in 1932. She was the first woman to sit on this committee, and the first woman to be elected to the council of the British Medical Association and appointed to the General Medical Council.

Housemistress, Lynsey Buhagiar, joined Epsom from Box Hill School in 2019, where she was Director of Wellbeing. For the last four years, she was a Housemistress for both boarding and day girls alongside teaching Dance, Drama and PSD.

Lynsey grew up in Somerset and attended Millfield School where she was Head Girl. She then went onto London Studio Centre to train as a professional dancer, gaining a BA(Hons) in Theatre Dance from the University of the Arts London. She joined Intoto Contemporary Dance Company for her graduation tour before starting work for a Dance production company and agency. Eventually, she entered the teaching profession, completing her teacher training at Beechwood Park School.

Lynsey joins her husband, Alex, who has been teaching at Epsom since September 2017 as Head of PE and Head of Activities.
