Epsom and Ewell High School is a secondary school located at Ruxley Lane, Epsom, Surrey, England that opened in 1989. It is a coeducational, academy that educates children from ages 11-18, with over 900 on the roll. It is situated in the borough of Epsom and Ewell, in the outlying suburbs of London.


In 2008 the school was put in special measures following a critical Ofsted report. The school was again inspected in 2010 in which the outcome was very positive with Ofsted saying the school had gone from being in "Special Measures" to 'Good with outstanding features'. [1] In September 2010 the school was designated as a specialist Language College.

Bourne Education Trust[edit]

In October 2011 Epsom and Ewell High School converted to academy status. The school is now part of the Bourne Education Trust, a Surrey-based multi-academy trust which includes Jubilee High School, Matthew Arnold School, Pyrcroft Grange Primary School, Sayes Court Primary School and Sythwood Primary School.[2] Epsom and Ewell High School acts as the lead school of the trust.
