Ideally located only one hour from central London, Felsted is a co-educational day and boarding school for children aged 4-18, set in a beautiful, rural 80 acre village on the Herts/Essex border. Offering a selection of contemporary boarding options to suit modern family life, pupils may board three, five or seven nights a week. Many London families have chosen Felsted to gain a better of quality of life;

"We wanted our children to have an 'all-rounded' education in a rural environment with like-minded people, away from the pressures of inner-London schools. A big attraction was the fact that all Co-Curricular activities are undertaken during an extended school day, so there are no more overwhelming logistical puzzles to resolve after pick-up".

It's been an exciting time at Felsted, as the School celebrated its 450th Anniversary in 2014 and has announced professional partnerships with the Junior Guildhall of Music, Saracens Rugby, Blue Hornets Hockey and Essex Cricket.

Academic, Boarding and Co-Curricular provision is 100% 'excellent', as rated by ISI at its last inspection, with Felsted achieving its position in the top 10% for Value Added for the third year running. This score proves that Felsted pupils are more likely to exceed their academic performance at Felsted than at 90% of all other schools in the UK, both state and independent.

Strong academic results and excellent entry to top universities are annually achieved, via A Levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma, allowing for a wide scope of academic possibilities. A Gifted and Talented programme extends the most able and an experienced Support for Learning Department assists those that need extra help.

Felsted sport is for the elite and the enthusiast - national and regional success is annually achieved across all core sports, including titles such as National Champions in Hockey and Netball. More recently Felsted became the first school to take two rugby teams into the Finals of the National Daily Mail Vase Competition, at Twickenham.

The Felsted Diploma offers a tailored co-curricular programme for every senior student, who follow their own unique pathway through the School. All Felstedians have access to an excellent work education programme and are provided with career support through the Felsted Network. As a Global Member of the Round Square organisation, pupils are also able to exchange and have dialogue with a network of over 115 schools worldwide.
