this new school will ex­pand Ep­som Col­lege’s in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion as a provider of high qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

it main­tains links with the top med­i­cal schools in Bri­tain and the Rus­sell Group, which rep­re­sents one of the world’s elite group of uni­ver­si­ties.

With over 150 years of ex­pe­ri­ence, Ep­som Col­lege pro­vides an all-round ed­u­ca­tion to gifted boys and girls.

Ep­som’s aca­demic ex­cel­lence is ob­vi­ous with 84% of A-Lev­els (A2) stu­dents re­ceiv­ing A*, A or B grade.

typ­i­cally, two-thirds of all iGSCE en­tries scored A* or A in the last four years. Each year, around 75% of stu­dents man­aged to se­cure places in pres­ti­gious re­search-in­ten­sive uni­ver­si­ties.

Ep­som Col­lege is renowned for pro­duc­ing top qual­ity per­form­ers in a va­ri­ety of sports.

Well known alumni in­clude ir­ish rugby player Paul Burke, Eng­land hockey player Stuart head, Eng­land net­baller Eboni Beck­fordCham­bers, Bri­tain’s lead­ing pro­fes­sional golfer Ross McGoWan and Com­mon­wealth Games full bore dou­ble gold medal­list Parag Pa­tel.

While ex­cel­lence is pur­sued for those with tal­ent and has led to many pupils achiev­ing county, na­tional or in­ter­na­tional rep­re­sen­ta­tive hon­ours, the aim is to cater for ev­ery pupil at their own level of abil­ity and en­thu­si­asm.

Stu­dents can also choose from 25 types of sports, along­side op­por­tu­ni­ties in mu­sic, art, drama, de­bat­ing, tech­nol­ogy and aca­demic en­rich­ment.
