Felsted offers boys and girls aged four to eighteen a first class all round education, based on a safe, rural village campus in stunning North Essex, only one hour from London and Cambridge. We welcome students from all over the world to appreciate a British boarding school education. For our more local families we also offer day and a variety of boarding options, with daily bus routes from across the region.
A rounded, holistic approach
At Felsted, we value emotional and social development as much as academic and intellectual development. From the moment that your son or daughter joins Felsted's supportive and close knit community, he or she will be nurtured and challenged. We take pride in knowing and valuing every child as an individual, stretching them, encouraging them, and appreciating them for every contribution that they make to the community. Characteristics such as compassion towards one's peers or resilience through adversity are developed just as much as creative, academic or sporting prowess.
Pupils instantly become part of the Felsted family and quickly make new friends. They thrive in a School which cares for the individual and gives so many opportunities to excel both academically and in a wide range of activities. Away from the classroom, your child will become a valuable member of sporting teams (hockey, tennis, netball, cricket, rugby, squash, polo etc), involved in drama and music or many of the other clubs and activities available. The welcoming Boarding and Day Houses ensure that strong friendships are made, with an active weekend programme to ensure your child is happy and stimulated.
We believe that our rounded and holistic approach, supported by the global Round Square network to which we belong, is what will make a difference to your child's path through life. In return, we hope that your child will also develop into someone who seeks to make a difference to the lives of others at school and in the wider world. Leadership, Service, Charity and Internationalism are core values here at Felsted.
"Felsted produces self-starting, entrepreneurial and independent spirits...a school that brings out the best in everyone."
