Epsom College

In 1855, Dr John Propert built a College to house, feed, clothe and educate the widows and orphans of medical men – a treacherous profession at the time. His guiding principles were ‘benevolence and excellence’ and these have remained at the heart of the College ever since.

Almost 170 years later, our pupils have taken inspiration from Dr Propert’s philanthropic zeal. They have developed values that connect us to the College’s rich history, but which will also help us to lead successful and fulfilled 21st Century lives.

Epsom College is consistently among the UK’s leading schools, based on its performance in public exams. In its last set of league tables, the Department for Education places us in the top 1% nationally. In 2022, we were voted Independent School of the Year (both as the Overall Winner, and as School of the Year for Student Wellbeing).

However, an Epsom education has always been about far more than results alone. We pride ourselves on offering all our pupils every possible opportunity to develop passions and interests that extend far beyond the classroom and last long after they have left school.

Following a traditional boarding school model, the school day extends until 6pm and Years 9 and above have lessons and fixtures on Saturday. This provides our girls and boys with the gift of time. The longer days allow all activities, lessons, sports, service in the community and academic extension to take place within the timetable, on our grounds.

The structure and routine of our days and weeks are guided by the philosophy that children learn as much from each other as from adults, and as much outside the classroom as inside. It also means that we can deliver on all the initiatives and values.
