                               End of Summer Term 2009


Dear Parents

ACADEMIC

Senior Pupils
The Heads of School for 2008/09 have once again been outstanding with Helena Mortimer
(W), Suzie Blunt (Cr) and James Measures (Rn) doing a first-class job in their three terms.

I am pleased to announce the following Heads of Houses for 2009/10: Xavier Dialdas (C),
Rosie Wilson (Cr), Joe Toomey (Fa), Otis Earle (F), Mark Tampin (G), Ben Scarles (H), Nikhil
Waugh (P), Anna Hurley (Rv), Max Nicholson (Rn), Holly Crompton (R), Stephanie Rew
(Wh), Charlotte Mungavin (W). I am delighted that Alex Dowle (C) has accepted my
invitation to be Head of School from September 2009.

Summer Reports
The following top U4 pupils achieved the outstanding and unbeatable straight As for Effort
and 1s for Achievement in all their GCSE subjects: Patrick Lewis (Rn), Zoe Sciver (Rv),
George Lindley (C), Michael Riddelsdell (P), Rebecca Tattersall (Rv), Ming-San Andy Wong
(F), Thomas Williams(F), Max Dialdas (C), Hugo Coleman (Fa), Rachel Mewett (R), Lok-Him
Melvin Chow (F), Harriet Skan (W), Rebecca Todd (W), Olivia Jenkins (Cr).

Headmaster’s Award: Henry Nelson (H) for service to back stage support technical team.

Arkwright Scholarship: Edmund Peppiatt (H) has been awarded an Arkwright Scholarship
for Design and Technology.

Leaving Staff

Mr Graham Poupart
Mr Graham Poupart became Head of Art in Epsom in 1980. He was trained at the Edinburgh
College of Art and after a short career in the army in the Ulster Defence Regiment became a
teacher in Northern Ireland. The Art Department has been tremendously successful in his
time winning national plaudits for the exceptional quality of its Fine Art and ceramics for
countless Epsomians in the last 25 years. Shaw may have quipped that 'Nothing that is

                                             3
worth knowing can ever be taught' But Graham has vigorously refuted this and carries our
very best wishes with him as he retires after a long and distinguished career.


Mrs Carole Rice
Mrs Carole Rice has been part of the Sports Department at Epsom for 22 years, coaching all
the major and many of the minor girls’ sports, from when girls were a relative novelty in the
Sixth Form right through to complete co-education in these last few years. Carole and her
husband, Norman, ran Fayrer House for 15 years and have been guardians to many
overseas pupils in the last few years.

Mr Donald Campbell
Mr Donald Campbell came to us in the summer of 2003 as the College’s cricket coach after a
highly successful career in Zimbabwe playing for the national side in two world cup squads.
Mr Campbell expanded his post to become a sports master and then in September 05 joined
the UK Graduate Teacher Programme in History and Geography. Since qualifying he has
taught History, Geography, PE, Politics, PSHE and is a genuine all-round academic
schoolmaster. He has been a most successful and valued Tutor in Fayrer, and has coached
first side rugby, first side cricket and junior boys hockey. He returns to run what was his
father’s prep school in Zimbabwe.

Mrs Katie Sinnett
Mrs Katie Sinnett joined three years ago after two years as an investment banker having
studied Economics at Cambridge. She completed her teacher training here and stayed for
two years, teaching Mathematics and running Dance and tutoring in Cr. She leaves to take
up a post at Francis Holland School in Chelsea as Head of Mathematics.

Miss Naomi Crossland
Miss Naomi Crossland joined us just a year ago having taught at Winchester College as a
student entry physicist for 2 years after gaining a Physics degree from Oxford. She goes off
to join the NHS as a trainee medical physicist.

Mrs Lynne Isaby
Mrs Lynne Isaby retires having been my secretary and the School secretary for 8 years
during which she has been a key Epsom voice to parents and pupils.

Mrs Jo Vernon Harcourt
Mrs Jo Vernon Harcourt leaves Rv this summer after 4 years, with massive respect and
affection for her consummate skills, experience and faith in her girls. Motherhood beckons:
good luck!

Dr Murray Tod
Dr Murray Tod leaves Granville as Housemaster after 3 years to join his wife, Kirsty in
Wilson - out of the proverbial male 'frying pan' into the female 'fire' perhaps? His busy
intellect, loyalty to his troops and sheer professionalism will be missed in Granville but
welcomed in Wilson.

MUSIC

Concerts
Three outstanding and highly contrasting concerts in the first half of term demonstrated the
extraordinarily high quality of ensemble music making that has gone on throughout this
academic year.

                                             4
An enthusiastic audience were thoroughly and professionally entertained by The Downs
Singers and The Big Band, under the direction of Mr Holiday, in the first concert of the term.

A similar high standard was achieved in the orchestra and ensembles concert. The orchestra
led by Harry Bradshaw, under the baton of Michael Hampshire, played in a wide variety of
styles and was joined by the Flute Ensemble, Sax Ensemble, Clarinet Ensemble, Clarinet
Quartet, Percussion Ensemble, and Samba Band, all of whom gave memorable
performances.

The Chapel Choir has led the worship in Chapel with some fine singing throughout the year
and has had a very successful Summer Term. The Chapel Choir Recital was splendid,
showing the full range of music the choir has performed and demonstrating some positive
and exciting choral singing. Suzie Blunt and Richard Trépant now hand over as Choir Prefect
to Laura Frazer.

In the Leavers’ Concert a significant number of the Upper Sixth presented an entertaining
programme and clearly enjoyed sharing their love of music with a large and appreciative
audience. This was a fantastic evening.

There have also been two informal concerts given by M4 and U4 pupils with packed
programmes, showing the extent of the talent and enthusiasm for music in those year
groups.

Individual Achievement
Each year a cup, The Scott Cup, is presented to a musician in the Upper or Middle Fourth
Form who shows great promise and has made a very significant musical contribution. This
year the cup is awarded to Andrew Wallace (Rn) who is an incredibly promising musician. An
accomplished pianist and clarinettist, already playing at grade 8 level on both instruments,
performing with Clarinet Ensemble, Clarinet Quartet, and Chapel Choir, as well as developing
as an organist: he is a true ambassador for musical excellence within the school.

We await the results and certificates for the many music examinations taken last week but
there are four certificates from last term to present today:

Max Austin                first concert certificate (singing)
Philippa Smith            grade 6 (flute)
Anna Halstead             grade 7 (piano)
Curtis Man                performer’s certificate (piano)

DRAMA

Another full and demanding term for academic and extra curricular Drama. In May the AS
Theatre Studies pupils performed Diane Samuel’s, ‘Kindertransport’ and Sarah Kane’s ‘4.48
Psychosis’ with great success. M4 academic Drama culminated in scripted performances of
plays and short extracts studied in weekly lessons performed at the end of the first half
term.

The main extra curricular Drama event has been the ambitious production of Alan Bennett’s
‘The madness of George 111’ this week. With a strong ensemble cast and a tight knit,
disciplined backstage team, this show has offered a great many opportunities to pupils to
excel. They have more than risen to the demands of the 81-page script and have managed
to recreate the 18th Century period with flair and ceremony. Well done to everyone for

                                               5
playing their role with confidence, commitment and great energy, whether on or off stage –
what a spectacle you’ve all achieved.

(Next year sees a Shakespeare season, starting with ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ at
Christmas, followed by Porter’s musical adaptation of ‘The Taming of the Shrew’, ‘Kiss Me
Kate’ in Lent and culminating in the Junior production this time next year of ‘Macbeth’.)

CCF AND DUKE OF EDINBURGH’S AWARD

During half term cadets completed a parachute jump. Prior to undertaking the 3500ft static
line jump cadets took part in three days of training at South Cerney Army Camp near
Cirencester.

This term the Middle Fourth joined the CCF. They participated in a wide variety of activities
culminating in an overnight camp at Aldershot during Field Day.

In the Inter-Squad Competitions the results were close but squad 8 were the eventual
winners.

The following were commended by the Commanding Officer
James Arnold (F); Sammy Boddy (Cr); Edwards Boughton (P); Thomas Camp (G); Natalie
Edwards (Cr); Lewis Harland (G); Bella Kristiansen (R); Michael Leung (G); Sam Owen (C);
Harriett Phillips (W); Olivia Robinson (R).

The following were highly commended by the Commanding Officer:
Keara Acton (W); Amber-Rose Billings (Cr); Sareena Blackburn (R); Jade Butcher (Rv); Thijs
Heijna (Fa); Anne Hogath (R); Igul Nazarova (W); Lauren Richardson (Cr); Amelia Warner
(W).

Anne Halstead (Cr) was best girl cadet and Max Gathercole (G) and Bogdan Stoichescu (G)
best boy cadets.

Winner of The Best Recruit Trophy was Matt Pollard (H)

At the end of term nearly 300 cadets took part in overnight camps and activities. These
included camps, Duke of Edinburgh’s award expeditions, navigation exercises, sailing and
infantry tactics. The whole middle fourth went to Aldershot to practise skills they had learnt
in previous weeks. In addition some leadership exercises were introduced. A highlight was a
visit from the Household Cavalry Regiment and the Princess of Wales’s Royal Regiment.

Adventure Training in Scotland and diving in the South of France.

SPORT

Boys Athletics
Once again this was a highly successful season. The team won the Goddard and Gomme
Cups, the Lord Burghley Trophy and the District Championships, coming second in the other
major matches. We also had another successful year at the County Championships with 6
County Champions and most other athletes well placed in the finals.

It took a couple of matches before the coaches managed to get the athletes in the right
events. Once that was done, the Junior team went on to have a very good season. They
have been unbeaten since winning the District Championships just before half term.
At the County Championships Chris du Toit (Fa) (javelin) and Ejiro Avwunu (H) (triple jump)
won their events with Nick Scales (Ca) and Mide Ajibade (H) second in these two events.
Ejiro, Mide and Nick went on to represent Surrey in an inter-counties match.

The Intermediate team was one of the most successful teams that the College has ever had.
They won all their matches, often by extremely large margins. Only last weekend they fell
just short of a perfect score by winning 12 of the 14 events contested
At the County champs our best placed athlete was Joe Toomey (Fa) 2nd in the 1500m,
Bradley Smith (Fa) was 3rd in this race, Tom Flynn (P) was 3rd in the hurdles and Will
Brown 3rd in the 400m.
The inter relay team of Lloyd Allen (Fa), Alex Aves (P), Tom Flynn (P) and Jordan Burns
broke the College record on no less than three occasions. Jordan also set a new best time for
the 200m and equalled the College track record for 100m; both of these records have stood
since 1953.

The Senior team lost to just two of the schools that they played against and produced two
County Champions. Tom Brown (H) in the 200m and Jite Avwunu in the Long Jump.

Boys Tennis

A pleasing season overall. Few sides could say they dominated the opposition, but then few
suffered the other way.

At the senior level, we had decent strength in the As to give anyone a game, but failed to
take our opportunities on too many occasions. Wins against St Georges, Eton           and
Wellington were pleasing, but losses against KCS, Marlborough, Cranleigh and Charterhouse
shouldn’t all have happened. The B’s played some great tennis but not often for long
enough. The C’s only had a couple of fixtures, and we struggled at this level.

U16s had a short season, and struggled against most opposition, although the top 4 excelled
in the ISL – especially against Dulwich Radley and Charterhouse in the second round pool.

U15s
This year's U15 tennis team have been a hard working group and a couple of additions to
the squad as well as their improvement has meant they probably boast the best results of
any age group.

U14s
The top four of Rooke (F) Galazka (P) Haville (G) and Jennings (Fa) have been excellent
throughout the season, but the squad has lacked consistency further down, and the lack of
depth has cost us a few matches.

                                             8
A strong group of 14 girls opted for tennis this term. The ‘A’ and ‘B’ teams results reflect
the improvement they have made throughout the term. In the A Team, 2 of their losses
were only by one game.
Amelia Warner (W) and Lindsay Sinclair (R) represented Epsom in the U.14 Group at a
tournament at St Georges, Weybridge. They won 2 of their 4 matches, narrowly missing
qualification to the next round.
The girls have worked hard and made very good progress with the consistency of their
stroke play, their mobility on court and their tactical awareness of match play. Well done to
them all.

The ‘A’ team started slowly at the beginning of the season with heavy losses v King’s
Canterbury & Cranleigh but found their form just before half term with a wopping 9-0 victory
v Christ’s Hospital followed by a similar thumping of 8-1 v Lord Wandsworth. As the term
progressed the team gained in confidence and consistent play, particularly by the top two
pairs Higgs (Rv) & Norkett (Rv) and Sciver (Rv) & Lundsberg (Rv). Shrewdly captained all
term by Polly Norkett in Raven

U15 B         Played 7          Won 1        Lost 6
Let’s focus on the one win v Brighton at home. A real battle was had by all 3 pairs, the end
finale seeing Durgan( Rv) & Storr (Rv) outplay the opposition. Brilliantly captained all season
by Bonnie Cheung (Cr)

A short season but with lots of success. The U16 As achieved great wins this season, some
closely fought, culminating in their impressive victory against Christ Hospital. The U16 Bs
had a less consistent season and swapped players as well. Despite some losses, they gained
in confidence in new pairings which should last into next year and finished the season with a
convincing win. Special thanks go to Louise Kelly (W) for her organised and steadfast
captaining.

Colours: Louise Kelly (W); Emma Albon (Rv) and Jess Wong(W).

Unlucky to lose out twice matches, to Wellington and King’s Canterbury one by the narrowest of
margins.
Had good wins over Cranleigh, Eastbourne. Pangbourne and Christ’s Hospital.
Some superb individual performances to reflect on.
Helena Mortimer(W) and Danielle Rice(W) only lost one set all term and that in their last match.
This pairing won 17/18 of their matches and have the ISTA Championships at Eton to look forward
to.
The team reached the semi finals in the Branston Shield our best result to date.
Harriet Canby(Wh) and Sophie Pontifex(Wh) supported well at 2nd pair and Caroline Seabrook(Cr) and
Natasha Watson(5th Form W) often bolstered results with some steady play as our 3rd couple.
Overall a pleasing season.

Rounders

U14A       Played 7              Won 3       Lost 4
The season began with a tough match against Kings Canterbury. Playing together for the
first time as a rounders team meant that communication was desperately needed to pull the
group together, by the end of the game this had happened and took their new confidence
into their second match, which was against Eastbourne, which they won. We met our match
against Cranleigh though and the two teams were neck and neck the whole time, Cranleigh
just pipping us at the post with an extra rounder beating us 15 rounders to 14. Before and
after half-term saw us play two matches against Sutton Valence, both of them nail-bitingly
close but Epsom's level-headedness under pressure meant we won both matches by just half
a rounder. Well done all for an excellent season - they have been a pleasure all term and
worked really hard at their game.

U14B       Played        Won          Lost
Cheerful and always up for a game whether it be practice or match, the girls have been
successful at winning one match against Brighton College. On that day they displayed great
fielding techniques and fantastic communication which got them to not only score 19 1/2
rounders but get all their opponents out in their first innings. Great team spirit all
throughout their term. They will improve no doubt.

A great season for this very enthusiastic team. Captain Rachel Mewett (R) led by example,
slogging many balls over the oppositions heads, and clearly instructing the field. Other
notable batting performances came from Felicity Beckett (R), Becky Quinlan (R) and Katie
Adam (Cr). Felicity was also consistently outstanding in the field, along with Katie Patel (Cr),
Janine Zager (Cr) and Maisie Bayley (R).

U15B       Played 4               Drew 1       Lost 3
The U15B's seemed to really enjoy this season, sometimes perhaps a little too much!! Amy
Gynell (Cr) was an excellent captain, and bowled consistently well throughout. Her focus was
matched by Becky Todd (W), who emerged as an excellent back stop. Annabel Lindsay was
dynamic in the field, resulting in her playing a couple of games for the A's. Support from the
rest of the team was excellent and all girls who trained were able, at some point, to give an
important contribution.

The U16s rounders continued to improve throughout the season. Although they did not
manage to win a match, the girls showed great sportsmanship and were dedicated to having
a good time. The team was ably captained by Delna Karanjia (W) and special mention must
be made to Jenny Watkin (W) for her outstanding batting.

The senior rounders team have enjoyed a tremendous unbeaten season and the girls have
been great fun on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons throughout the term. Ably captained by
Sam Burke (R), other prominent players have been Flo Kirby (R), Elspeth Marrow (Cr),
Emma Cockeram (Cr), Hattie Askew (Cr) Lowri Needham (Wh), Katie Everett (R), Ilsa
Forsberg (Rv) and Megan Bailey (Wh). The team was not permanently settled however and
many other girls not mentioned here have also represented the school with enthusiasm and
skill. Congratulations to all who have been involved this year, and thank you to all for your
good humour and motivation.

Golf
The summer season began with a successful tour for 20 golfers to Port Aventura, Spain.

In the HMC we have beaten St. Paul’s, Dulwich, Hampton, KCS Wimbledon, and Whitgift, to
reach the National Finals for the second year running. These are being held at the start of
July at the Royal Ashdown Forest.

In friendlies, we have beaten Hurstpierpoint, Brighton, Cranleigh and Reigate. A team of 12
beat the Old Epsomians four and a half to one and a half. Yesterday saw a match halved
against a strong Common Room side.

David Boote (Rn) was chosen to play for the Surrey adult team and reached the semi-final of
the Surrey Open.

The House golf trophy was won by Forest.

Major Colours have already been awarded to the Boys Captain, Gareth Blease (C), and the
Girls Captain, Madeleine Kuhler (Wh).

Half Colours: Charlie Higgs (Rn), Lewis Kuhler (P), and next term’s Captain, Jeremy
Morgan (H).

Target Rifle
The Target Rifle squad has had yet another outstanding term, successfully integrating the
new faces at M4 and L6th level with the 'old hands'. Beginning with the Malvern Cup on
Easter Sunday, the squad made their mark, beating Bradfield to retain the trophy for the
eighth year running. The VIII then went on to win the Clayton Challenge trophy in the
second week of term, despite it being the first session of the year shooting with the Cadet
Target Rifle! Three big matches in the form of the LMRA Schools, Surrey Schools and Sawyer
Cup followed in swift succession, and under sometimes challenging conditions, the
developing squad were successful at the VIII and Reserve Pair level in each and every one.
The Cadet Pairs also showed great promise with the new M4 intake hitting the ground
running. The term's training has put us in an excellent position moving towards the
culmination of this year's efforts; School's Week and the Ashburton in the third week of the
summer holidays.




                                            13
Congratulations must go to the whole squad, but in particular: Peter Slater (Fa), William
Broad (C) and Samir Amin (Rn) for consistently high scoring as part of the VIII, and also
Alistair Mazumdar (P) and Alex Brunton-Reed (C) for their success as Reserve Pair.

Swimming
Full colours: Andrew McIntyre (C); Rupert James (Fa); Connor Payne (C);Charles
