SWS are proud to have being entrusted over many years with the supply of the door furniture and ironmongery to this prestigious college.  To date, we have provided our quality ironmongery solutions to Robinson House, Fayrer House, North Lodge, Holman House, Forrest House, Propert House, Carr House and the Newsom Building

Epsom College was founded in 1855 and granted royal patronage by Her Majesty Queen Victoria in the same year. Today it has Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II as its patron.

The College has a truly unique history. It began life as The Royal Medical Benevolent College thanks to the work of founder Dr John Propert, who raised funds to build an institution for qualified medical practitioners and their spouses as well as a school for their sons.

The Royal Medical Foundation, based at the College, continues to play an active part in school life. The charitable foundation was built through generosity and a dedication to improving the lives of the individual and society, values which remain at the heart of the College today.

Built in 1857, the Chapel of St Luke stands at the heart of the College estate and is a physical reflection of the school's Christian heritage.

Investment in the school's infrastructure continued at a remarkable pace during the latter quarter of the 20th century as buildings were upgraded, Houses changed and extended.

The College has been co-educational for more than 40 years, with girls first welcomed to the College in 1976.Since the opening of the Lower School, in September 2016, Years 7 and 8 number as many girls and boys, something of which we are immensely proud.

The school now has more pupils than ever before and the number is rising. From September 2017, for the first time in Epsom's history, the school will teach pupils in all school years, from Lower Third (Year 7) to Upper Sixth (Year 13).
