It is with great excitement that Epsom College has announced its ambitious plans for a new centre to transform the educational experience of its pupils, with particular focus on the Sixth Form.
The new building is ambitious and requires significant investment. The whole project will cost £8.4million, to which the College is contributing £2.4million. In order to raise the remaining £6million, Epsom is embarking on its most ambitious fundraising campaign since the College was founded.

Built on the footprint of the current Sixth Form Centre, located at the heart of the campus, and spread over almost 2,000 sq m, the building will equip students with the skills to succeed in the 21st century. In particular, it will help to foster a seamless transition into undergraduate life.
The College is on an excellent trajectory, and the new building will play a key role in enabling Epsom College to become the pre-eminent co-educational day and boarding school in London and the South East.
"Among this positive growth and strong sense of community, the College lacks one essential space: a co-educational space for pupils to come together, particularly in the Sixth Form," says Mr Jay Piggot, Headmaster at Epsom College.
"Pupils learn as much outside the classroom as inside it, and as much from each other as from adults. Truly great schools need to provide safe and imaginative spaces for this to happen."
