Epsom one of just three schools ‘highly commended’ in three TES Award categories

Epsom was named runner up in three categories in the prestigious TES (Times Educational Supplement) Independent School Awards 2019. In recognition of another outstanding year for the College, Epsom was runner up across three categories:

  • Senior Leadership Team of the Year
  • Whole School Community Initiative of the Year
  • Wellbeing Initiative of the Year.

The awards applaud excellence and reward innovation by individuals and teams making remarkable strategic and financial contributions to independent schools across the UK.

Now in their tenth year, they are the highest accolades in secondary education. They also provide benchmarks for the sector as a whole and networking opportunities for schools to learn from each other.

TES Editor, Ann Mroz, said: “Independent education in this country is truly world class. It is one of our great success stories. Those shortlisted for the TES Independent School Awards are the crème de la crème. We received a record number of entries this year and the standard is the highest yet, so to be shortlisted is an extraordinary achievement for any school.”

Headmaster, Mr Jay Piggot, said: “To be named runner up in three award categories is gratifying as it formally acknowledges the distance our College has travelled over recent years, and stands as a monument to all the hard work and commitment all pupils and staff have contributed to the College to take us on this exciting journey and impressive trajectory.

“Great schools are built around teams of talented people rather than individuals, we are fortunate at Epsom to have assembled a talented Senior Leadership Team who are devoted to the College and eager to continue to contribute to the school’s exciting advancement.

“Similarly, to be recognised in the School Community and Wellbeing Initiatives highlights the excellent work undertaken by students and staff across an impressive range of important areas of school life.”
