Felsted Prep School / Ages 4 -12
Taking those first steps towards lifelong learning starts at Felsted Prep in Reception at Stewart House. Surrounded by green open spaces, our dedicated and highly skilled team create a caring and nurturing environment where your child can grow in confidence as they start that all important learning journey.
Our learning focused environment provides the space needed for children to direct and shape their experiences in partnership with our Felsted team and parents. The thrill of learning is an adventure that is nurtured and brought to life both inside and outside of the classroom.
The fun does not stop when the school day ends; Felsted’s boarding culture is at the heart of our holistic education with many prep school children choosing to reap the rewards of boarding life. As our older learners advance through Felsted Prep, they experience an abundance of opportunities for service and leadership that help develop skills of confidence, communication and collaboration.
Building character and making a difference starts with inspiration. Our Felsted learners are ready to welcome exciting challenges across all aspects of school life. We respect that ‘give it a go’ attitude that allows children the freedom to explore new interests that lead to passions that they have yet to discover.

Children may start boarding from the age of eight in our homely Prep Boarding House, called Hamilton House. Children may opt to board for a couple of nights or choose our weekly or full boarding option. Hamilton House has the capacity for 60 boarders, with dedicated bedrooms and relaxation/recreation areas for boys and girls. They have a jam packed schedule of fun activities to keep them busy in the evenings and at weekends and are cared for by our highly experienced and much loved House Parent team.
