Round Square is more than anything an ethos. This ethos stresses that we are rounded individuals who have many talents and that these talents need to be encouraged for us all to develop our true potential. Membership of the Round Square is a great honour for Felsted.
It recognises that Felsted does many things well, that we are leaders in adventure training, carers for our environment, democratic in our outlook and give each Felstedian responsibility from an early age.
“Plus est en vous!” is one of the leading beliefs and mottos of the Round square Organisation.
Round Square at Felsted
Membership of the Round Square opens up access for Felstedians to numerous exciting opportunities to visit the 80+ schools worldwide who share these beliefs. Through exchanges, gap year opportunities and educational conferences at European and World level, the school experience of the Felstedian is enriched.
Felsted is justly proud of its traditions, but we are also excited to be part of a worldwide community of schools who try to make the difference, to go that extra mile, to help others, both locally and internationally, and in so doing to grow as people who are truly international citizens of the world.

International Service Projects
Round Square International Service (RSIS) projects are opportunities for students and adults from Round Square schools to come together from across the globe and to take part in something amazing. Participation in a Round Square International Service Projects is a great way for young adults to learn about global citizenship, community engagement, develop a deeper understanding of the world’s problems and experience a new culture. Packed with challenging adventure and cultural awareness opportunities, the project programmes are designed to ensure that students have an exciting, experiential and holistic learning experience that is second-to-none.
Each year Round Square host two unique service projects for 50 students from Round Square Schools. The projects take place every year in July and December and run (on average) for two weeks.
Students work together with a rural community in need to build a vital piece of infrastructure. In the past this has been classrooms, accommodation for teachers, bridges and clean water systems.
