Felsted is a co-educational, boarding and day school for children aged 4 to 18 years. There are over 500 pupils in the senior school and approximately 80% of these pupils board in some way. International boarders are welcomed from the age of 8 upwards and there are just over 100 international boarders in total. The youngest boarders (8-12) stay in the Prep School boarding house, and transfer over to the senior school at the age of 13. A dedicated English as an Additional Language Department provides excellent support to those children who do not speak English as a first language and a specifically designed induction programme enables international boarders to settle as quickly as possible into Felsted school life.
Felsted is located in a rural, English village setting, just one hour north of London, and just 90 minutes from London Heathrow or Gatwick Airports. Stansted International Airport is 15 minutes away.
A day in the life of…
A normal school day starts at 7.00am, with a great breakfast selection in our communal dining room. At 8.20am Tutor or House time or a whole school Assembly is followed by lessons until 1pm, with a break in House during the morning. A wide variety of food caters for all tastes at lunch, in our communal hall, followed by some free time. Co-curricular activities and sport mostly take place in the afternoons, with fixtures on Tuesdays and Saturdays.
After supper at 6pm and some free time, Prep (homework) is completed in the boarding house from 7-8.30pm. Children are then free to relax in house, visit friends in other houses or get involved in a variety of activities. Bedtimes start from 10pm.
Weekends have a different routine. After Saturday morning lessons, sports fixtures are followed by a variety of activities and socials. Sundays are more relaxed with a lie-in, brunch, coffee club and opportunities to go on a fun outing (such as go carting, shopping, cinema) or partake in activities in school such as cake making, craft, rounders or treasure hunts!
