Encouraging an energetic commitment to achieving personal excellence.
In partnership with its community, Epsom Girls Grammar School seeks to provide a wide range of learning opportunities and a quality environment to meet the learning needs and aspirations of our students. We promote and affirm personal excellence, achievement, confidence, respect and concern for others, and a sense of community.

Excellent academic results from our students enable them to study successfully at tertiary institutions after leaving our school. Students also participate fully in our co-curricular programme of sports, arts and cultural activities. Our school orchestra is award-winning and we have a range of musical groups and choirs.
