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 456 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.
April 2020 Update: Ordinarily we review fee increases each academic year at the end of the Spring Term for the academic year ahead. We believe that with so much uncertainty for parents this year it would not be appropriate to increase fees at this time. Therefore the school pledges that the fees for 2020/21 will remain at the same levels as those 2019/20. Additional charges will be reviewed at a later date.

Thank you all for the support and encouragement you’ve given our son. His progress over his years at Felsted has been nothing short of phenomenal. We’ve always has faith in his potential, but turning that potential into achievement is a testament to the expertise of the Felsted teaching team. He has tremendously grown in confidence and relishes the many, many opportunities he has. No other school could have done better. Thank you.
