Epsom College's vision for a new Centre for Excellence
Epsom's vision is to provide much-needed space for academic and cultural enrichment, with seminar rooms, discussion pods and a large study area. The space also features a screening room and a lecture theatre that can accommodate up to 189 students.
The new facility, and the additional support it provides, will foster a seamless transition into undergraduate life. Central to this aim is a state-of-the-art careers centre, supported by interview practice rooms.
The Mermaid will also provide students with a much-needed co-educational space for social interaction, relaxation and culture. It will house Epsom's programme of arts, culture, debates and performances. The café will double as a gallery space, celebrating students' art and photography.

Ashley Head says, “As Chair of the Campaign Board, I have been privileged to lead and support the campaign from the outset, by striving towards the Headmaster’s vision to create a space for pupils to come together, particularly in the Sixth Form. Both of my sons, Ryon (F 2008-2013) and Liam (F 2013-2018), have benefited from an education at Epsom College, which has provided them with a first-rate education, the use of exceptional facilities and a strong sense of community. By supporting the campaign, I feel I am helping Epsom achieve its ambitions, as well as providing a facility to support the next generation of students. I hope the whole Epsom Community will get involved with the Campaign in the coming months and take part in the many exciting upcoming events.”
