    A head teacher, her daughter and husband have all been found dead in the grounds of a British school.

    Emma Pattison, 54, daughter Lettie, seven and husband George, 39, were found at Epsom College.

    Detective Chief Inspector Kimball Edey said, “On behalf of Surrey Police, my team, and I, I first want to express my sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Emma, Lettie and George, as well as to the students and staff of Epsom College, for their tragic loss.

    “I want to give my assurance that we will conduct a thorough investigation into what took place last night, and hope to be able to bring some peace in these traumatic circumstances. I would ask that their privacy is respected at this very difficult time.”

    No details on how the three died have been released, but police were called to the site at 1am this morning (February 5).

    According to a now-removed page from the college's website, she was officially appointed the establishment's 14th head in January, 2022, although her Linkedin states that she started in September of the same year.

    She had previously spent six years as head teacher of Croydon High School, and was deputy head of St John's School in Leatherhead for four years before that.

    Dr Alastair Wells, chair of the board of governors at Epsom College said that everyone was "shocked" by the news.

    He said: ""Our immediate thoughts and condolences are with Emma’s family, friends and loved ones, and to the many pupils and colleagues whose lives she enriched throughout her distinguished career.

    “Emma was a wonderful teacher, but most of all she was a delightful person.

    "In time we will commemorate Emma and her family, in the appropriate way, and in line with the wishes of her family. But for now, we ask that we are all given the time, space and respect we need to come to terms with this tragic loss.”

    There are no publicly available details about George or Lettie Pattison.
