TES Independent School Awards

Felsted is delighted to be only one of eight schools in the UK to be shortlisted for the Boarding School of the Year Award 2020; an award that is given to a boarding school for its performance, rapid improvement or continued excellence in the 2018-19 year.

The judges looked for schools offering more than just academic achievement, but those that have demonstrated innovation, imagination and efforts to develop children in ways that go beyond the league tables.  

The winner will be announced in February 2020.

While education is not about winning prizes, it is very pleasing to see this recognition of the hard work being put in by staff and pupils across the whole school. To be shortlisted as Boarding School of the Year shows the breadth of achievement and experience at Felsted and it is a real privilege to lead a School that is making a difference in so many ways.
