Help us fulfill our dream and build the Creative Arts Lodge!
Updated: Nov 20, 2019
There is a lot of creativity going on at our school and music, dance and singing has had such a positive affect on all of the pupils. Our core values (‘Nurturing, Unique, Ambitious and Creative’) help us to achieve and to express our creativity through music, art, dance and drama. We have developed opportunities in lessons, provided more clubs including choir, musical theatre and street dance. There are also more instrumental teaching sessions like piano and violin, as well as getting involved in the ever growing Concert Band. However, we have a problem! We do not have a space for children to learn and practice their instruments, for the choir to sing, concert band to rehearse and pupils to dance… Our dream is to have a CREATIVE ARTS LODGE! It is something everyone at EPS is working really hard on to make this dream come true. It would provide the much needed space, our very own special place where children are transported into a world of song, dance and drama.
EPS is a fast-growing school and we desperately need a dedicated space to nurture and develop the amazing talents of all the children at this unique, inclusive and hardworking school. The Concert Band and the choir for example, who are so committed, have had the wonderful and rewarding opportunity of performing at various exciting venues such as the O2, the Epsom Playhouse and Dorking Halls.
Our school is also very involved with our local community. Our talented pupils have performed at the Christmas Lights ‘switching on’ event in Epsom, at the Ashley Centre and regularly visit the local residential care home, Appleby House, where the lovely people there thoroughly enjoy listening to the choir and often join in. Music is appreciated by everyone and brings so much joy.
The whole school is involved in raising as much money as possible. We have had different fundraising events such as cake and book sales, mufti days, discos, bbqs and many more.
Although we have already raised an incredible £17,000, we need to raise a total of £30,000 to have our very own EPS Creative Arts Lodge.
Will you help us make our dream come true?

Business donations would benefit the school community whilst promoting your business for many years to come. Your donation will be communicated to the families in the school, posted onto our blog and social media platforms, and your business will have a permanent plaque inside the Creative Arts Lodge.
