U.K. : Epsom College principal Emma Pattison found dead along with her husband and seven-year-old daughter

An Epsom Col­lege prin­ci­pal was found dead in her home on the school grounds, along with her hus­band and sev­en-year-old daughter.

Emma Pat­ti­son, 45, her hus­band George, 39, and her daugh­ter Let­ty, were found dead at 1:10 a.m. Japan time on Sunday.

The South East Coast Ambu­lance Ser­vice vis­it­ed the pub­lic school, accord­ing to Sur­rey Police.

Police believe the inci­dent was a sin­gle inci­dent “with­out third par­ty involvement.”

An inves­ti­ga­tion is cur­rent­ly under­way to deter­mine the cause of death.

On behalf of the Sur­rey Police Depart­ment and my team, and myself, first of all, to the friends and fam­i­ly of Emma, Let­ty and George, and to the stu­dents and staff of Epsom Col­lege, my heart­felt con­do­lences for this trag­ic loss. 

“I want to assure you that we will thor­ough­ly inves­ti­gate what hap­pened last night.” .”

Pat­ti­son has been the prin­ci­pal of Croy­don High School in South Lon­don for six years before she became Epsom’s first female prin­ci­pal in Sep­tem­ber 2022.

Accord­ing to Com­pa­ny­house, her prin­ci­pal’s hus­band, George, was a CPA and a direc­tor of a man­age­ment con­sul­tan­cy called Tan­gle­wood 2016.

The school’s direc­tor called her late col­league “a won­der­ful teacher and most of all, a love­ly person.”

“On behalf of every­one at Epsom Col­lege, I would like to express my shock and dis­be­lief at this sad news,” said Dr. Alas­tair Wells.

“We imme­di­ate­ly think of Emma’s fam­i­ly, her friends, her loved ones, and her many stu­dents and col­leagues with whom she has enriched her life through her dis­tin­guished career. I think of her and extend my con­do­lences to her.”

In Octo­ber, Pat­ti­son tweet­ed that she was “delight­ed” that Epsom Col­lege won the 2022 Inde­pen­dent School of the Year award.

Sheena’s daugh­ter attends Croy­don High School, where Pat­ti­son used to work.

Her moth­er, who gave only her first name, called the news “absolute­ly shock­ing and tragic.”
