Felsted is an independent school, overseen by a board of governors who agree the fee levels each year. Founded by Richard Lord Riche in 1564, Felsted School is a charity (no. 310870) and as such reinvests any surplus made back into the school, ensuring that future generations of Felstedians receive the very finest of British education that their predecessors have experienced over the past 458 years.

Felsted aims to keep its fees as low as possible and sits at a very competitive level compared to schools of a similar type nationally. We appreciate what a commitment it is for parents to pay for a leading education and as such would recommend that you gain independent financial advice to secure the best method for paying these fees.
