Prep School (ages 11+)
We understand what a big decision it is for you to choose the right school for your child. We aim to make the process as simple as possible and have a number of options below for you to get to know Felsted. Please also read through our admissions procedures for each entry point, found at the bottom of the page.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
