Admissions Videos


Open Mornings

You are welcome to join us for a Whole School Open Morning, which are held on a Saturday in May and September each year, where you will be able to hear our Headmaster speak, meet our teachers and be taken on a tour of the Prep School by one of our young Felstedians. If you have the energy, and recommended for those thinking of joining Year 7, you may also visit the Senior School afterwards and enjoy a delicious school lunch.


Taster Mornings

We host a number of taster days throughout the year for your child to get to know Felsted better. Your child will be able to sample a mixture of academic lessons and some of our co-curricular activities.


Individual Visit

Book an individual visit at your convenience to meet Headmaster, Mr Simon James and the appropriate Head of Phase, and enjoy a full tour of the Prep School by some of our young Felstedians. Please allow 1.5hrs for this visit.

Register with us

We encourage you to register with us by completing our Registration Form and fee as soon as you are ready; once we have this, you are then included on our list of applicants for the appropriate year and will be contacted for taster days and testing. Please contact the Admissions Office before registering, to ensure we have places remaining.

We would like to make this process as smooth as possible for our prospective families, so please do contact us at any stage if you would like further clarification.
