About Epsom College

Epsom College is one of the UK’s leading independent co-educational schools providing both boarding and day education for over 1025 boys and girls aged 11 – 18. Established in 1855, and granted royal patronage by Queen Victoria in the same year, today it has Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as its patron.
The College has a truly unique history. It began life as The Royal Medical Benevolent College thanks to the work of its founder, Dr John Propert, who raised funds to build an institution for qualified medical practitioners and their spouses as well as a school for their sons. The Royal Medical Foundation, based at the College, continues to play an active role in school life.
The College has been co-educational for more than 40 years, with girls first being welcomed in 1976 and a Lower School, for years 7 and 8, opening in 2016. The school now has more pupils than ever before and the number is rising.
Set on a beautiful 85 acre estate, only fifteen miles from central London, the still red bricks of St Luke's Chapel, and the other original Victorian buildings, stand as a monument to the breadth of an Epsom education. The College offers an outstanding all-round education built, in part, upon an appreciation that activity beyond the classroom enhances our pupils and their relations with staff, and that passion and commitment can transform pupils and prepare them for the richest possible lives as adults.
The College is on an exciting trajectory with academic performance notably advancing in recent years, the Senior Leadership Team shortlisted in the Outstanding SLT category of the 2019 TES Awards, recognised as runner-up as Best School for All-Rounders (2017), Best School for Co-Curricular Activities (2018), Best School for CCF (2019), Best for Lower School Sport (2020) and Best for All-Rounders (2020) in The Week Independent School Guide. A sister school recently opened in Malaysia, a Lower School opened in September 2016 and a plethora of dynamic new Heads of Departments and senior teachers appointed since 2012 under the Headship of Jay Piggot.
This is an exciting time to join Epsom and to contribute to the further development and success of the College. Working at Epsom is both personally and professionally rewarding; staff flourish in the boarding school community and significantly enhance their own professional development.
The ISI Inspection report in February 2019 adjudged the College to be excellent in all areas with no recommendations for improvement. The report observed that pupils ‘demonstrate commitment to excellence in all areas of learning; do not settle for mediocrity and express confidence in the culture of the school that inspires them to be the best they can be.’ Similarly, the recent 2019 ‘Good Schools Guide’ concludes ‘You feel you are part of a school that’s really going places. Led with real vision, this school offers an exciting learning environment within an extensive, top-notch campus and the students are among the most inquisitive and delightful we’ve come across.’
