Senior School (ages 13-16)

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 this page.

1. Open Mornings

You are welcome to join us for one of our Whole School Open Mornings, 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 Senior School by one of our young Felstedians. You are also welcome to stay and enjoy a delicious school lunch and watch any fixtures that are being held in the afternoon.

2. Taster Days/Nights

We can arrange for your child to spend a taster day and/or night with us, at a time to suit you, so that they can get to know Felsted better. Your child will be accompanied by a buddy from the same year group to sample a mixture of academic lessons, co-curricular activities, sport, social time, meals and time in one of our boarding or day houses.

For Year 9 entry, we hold an Enrichment Day in the June, one year prior to entry, for children to get to sample our range of activities and to get to know Felsted better. An Induction Day is then held in the June prior to entry for children to meet their peer group in their allocated boarding or day house.

3. Individual Visit

Book an individual visit at your convenience to meet the Headmaster or a member of the Senior Leadership Team, a House Master or House Mistress, and enjoy a full tour of the Senior School by one our young Felstedians, including a boarding or day house. Please allow at least two hours for this visit.

I just wanted to say that our connections with Felsted have been outstanding since the first time we contacted you which has made us more confident it is the right school for our son. Having worked in the service industry for many years, building a unique culture and core purpose and executing this across all parent pupil touch-points takes effort as well as belief in what you are doing. This is what helped finalise our decision over another leading school.
