Rosebery School is an all-girls school located in Epsom, Surrey. It consists of a lower school for those aged between 11 and 16, and a Sixth Form for those aged between 16 and 18. The school has academy status. It is situated close to the A24 and the railway.


Rosebery School sits on an area of land given to the borough by Lord Rosebery, along with the nearby Rosebery Park. It is the product of the amalgamation of Rosebery Grammar School for Girls and Epsom County School for Girls. It was founded in 1927 and became an academy on 1 December 2011.


At Rosebery, pupils are organised into different houses: Diamond, Emerald, Ruby and Sapphire. When a new pupil joins she is placed in a house, remaining part of it throughout her time at the school.Pupils who already have a sister in the School join the house to which their sister already belongs.


All girls in the lower school, Years 7-11, wear a uniform, recognised for its kilt and navy blue jumper bearing a red primrose. This is said to reflect the Tudor rose. The school was founded by Lord Rosebery and Hannah Primrose, Countess of Rosebery who also used their family tartan for the initial uniform. Sixth formers do not wear a uniform, but must wear appropriate clothing, no extremes of fashion are allowed.Girls will also, depending on which house they belong to, wear a coloured badge with the logo of Rosebery School.

Specialist status

In 2006, Rosebery was awarded specialist status for Mathematics and ICT. Following this they installed a VLE or Virtual Learning Environment, which enables students and staff to post work and information making them available both at school and home.
