Epsom & Ewell

Learning & Results

Any good school will balance the emotional needs of the child with the academic needs. At Epsom and Ewell High School we are proud to have developed a learning identity that is embedded across departments, underpinning our broad, balanced, and bespoke curriculum.

Staff carefully distinguish between the teaching of knowledge and skills. Students learn fundamental knowledge which is sequenced to support understanding and retrieval. Students then apply Deep Learning in every lesson allowing them to think deeper, and practice vital skills.‚Äč

Our curriculum model

Deep learning

Deep learning is our new and innovative approach to learning.

Our aim is to create a learning identity which is unlike anywhere else. We want to challenge our students to ‘think hard’ in every lesson, become independent and feel better prepared for the challenges of the new educational landscape.

Results

Students at Epsom and Ewell High School make progress that is far above the national average.

A school’s progress score is a measure of how well students do compared to where they were when they entered the school in year 7 (for GCSEs) or sixth form (for A Levels). Scores range from -1 to +1 with 0 meaning that students progressed in line with how they were supposed to.

Our progress scores over the last 3 years have always been positive and improving year on year. This year our students at GCSE level made over a third of a grade higher in all their subjects compared to similar students nationally.

Students who took A Levels made almost half a grade more than other students nationally. We are extremely proud of our academic success and the fact that all our students get to the destination of their choice once they have left us.

Our track record over the past 3 years proves that your children will do better with us than similar students who attend other schools nationally.

My daughter's results speak for themselves (including 5 level 9s, English Language at level 7 and English Literature at level 8) and the support she received from the school made a big difference not just to her academic achievements, but also her confidence.
