When we receive a completed form from you, we will email you to make sure we have fully understood what you want to know, if anything is unclear.
We will also offer you a free online consultation to better understand what you and your family are looking for from a UK education provider.
Then we will confirm that the request for information has come from a parent/guardian, not a child (under 16). If this is unclear from the information provided, we will separately email the respondent and ask for a return email copying in a parent/guardian, or ask for added confirmation of the age of the respondent. If necessary, we will then verify the identity of the parent/guardian with a separate email requesting confirmation of this relationship before any further information is sought from the respondent and before any data is shared with any 3rd party (requested school/university). Also, all ongoing communications will be copied to the parent.
Following this, we will email the right person within the faculty office of the chosen University or Boarding school admissions department, you want to make contact with, and copy you on the email, so you can see your request has been actioned.
The chosen University or Boarding school will then seek your permission (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) to send you the information you have requested and will make you aware of their own data protection policies.
If you have given permission for the Boarding School or University to contact you (EU regulations, relating to EU data subjects) we will ensure you get a reply from the University or School of interest.
We will then follow up with you to make sure your questions have been answered and you feel able to move forwards with your planning.
We are happy to provide any further assistance we can offer at any stage of your application process to any UK educational institution featured on the site.

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 Year 5 upwards (typically age 9/10) and there are just over 100 international boarders in total. The youngest boarders (9-12) 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!
