Epsom College Head’s Death; The Whole Family Found Dead!


A real tragedy! The “Independent School of the Year” Epsom College head’s death on Monday (February 6, 2023) was reported as a big shock; Emma Pattison and her whole family were found dead.

The Independent School of the Year board conveyed their ‘utter shock and disbelief’ at the tragedy. May they rest in peace and our thoughts and prayers are with their loved ones.

The headmistress of Epsom College, Emma Pattison, was tragically found dead alongside her 39-year-old husband, George, and their young daughter, Lettie, at a property on the school’s grounds. Lettie was only 7.

The bodies were discovered after Surrey Police were called to the “Independent School of the Year” by paramedics at 1.10 am on Sunday. The 45-year-old had only joined the school in September. She had previously been head at Croydon High School.

The family’s next of kin have been informed and supported by specialist officers while an investigation is now underway to establish the circumstances of their deaths.

A spokesperson announced the college community will be “coming together” to “process the news, grieve and pay our respects to a wonderful Head.” The school said that chapel services would be held throughout Monday morning and counseling would be made available to students, according to an email to parents seen by The Sun.

Headteachers will be “on hand” to offer support and additional counselors are on-site, parents were told. The force said they are confident this is an isolated incident with no third-party involvement.
