International Admissions

Felsted has a long and well-established tradition of educating pupils from all over the world. Our international pupils make a major contribution to the richness and diversity of community life at Felsted and we welcome applications from overseas full boarders from Year 5, as well as relocating families with younger children.

The international intake makes up 20% of our total pupil body, with a dedicated introductory week held at the beginning of each academic year (called LEAP week) in which our new overseas pupils are introduced to Felsted School Life. This induction gives these pupils a head start before term begins so that they get to know their way around the campus, make strong friendships, meet their key teachers and arrange their uniform. The week also includes some fun cultural trips to London and Cambridge and is a key part of integration into Felsted.



Entrance Requirements and Procedures

Further details regarding the entry procedure can be found below, but there are four steps to follow:

  • First steps: The pupil’s details and documents are to be sent to the International Registrar
  • Registration 
  • Entry Testing
  • Visiting Felsted School (Skype interviews can be organised if a visit is not feasible)

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

Felsted Boarding 2020

We have created a short video so that you can learn more about what we have put in place to ensure boarding is safe for our pupils. It is wonderful to see staff and pupils working together to make it a safe and rewarding experience. We hope that it will give an insight into what a positive experience boarding can still be.
