Epsom College was founded in 1855 with Royal patronage granted by Her Majesty Queen Victoria. This friendly and inviting school is particularly popular with the younger age group studying English abroad on our residential Summer School courses.
Inviting and friendly are the terms usually used to describe Epsom. This makes it particularly appealing to the younger age group studying for the Trinity exam.
The campus may be relatively compact, but there is no shortage of facilities. There is a large sports centre with two sports halls, squash courts and a 25 metre indoor swimming pool. You’ll also find 18 tennis courts, an indoor shooting range and extensive games fields in 32 hectares of magnificent grounds.
The school is justly proud of its new state-of-the-art studios for music, drama, film and dance. Lighting, sound and multi-media facilities here are up to the highest professional standards.
Most bedrooms at Epsom are single or twin study bedrooms, with some 3-5 bed rooms also available, all of which are less than 5 minutes’ walk from the main buildings of the college. All have attractive common rooms with TV/DVD.
Epsom is a small market town, and the town centre is a short walk from the school. Epsom is 22 km from central London, with fast and frequent trains to Victoria station (journey time 30 minutes). Heathrow and Gatwick airports are less than 45 minutes by coach.
The college is ideally placed to provide students with excellent excursions to London, Brighton, Oxford and Canterbury. These trips are designed to give students an understanding of English life, culture and history, and are primarily educational, although there are opportunities for shopping and sightseeing on every excursion. The attractions visited do vary, and may include trips to the Sealife Centre in Brighton, the British Museum, National Gallery, National Portrait Gallery, Museum of London, Natural History Museum, Science Museum and the National Maritime Museum in London, along with Canterbury Cathedral and a visit to a college of Oxford or Cambridge University.
