International Admissions

COVID-19: Admissions Update 

Our Admissions Office is open and members of our Admissions Team are available to talk to you, explain our entrance procedures and chat through how Felsted might suit you as a family.  The team can also arrange a digital opportunity for you to talk to the Headmaster or another member of the senior management team. In the meantime, why not find out more about Felsted via our Virtual Tours. 

Virtual Tours

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.

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.

James - Portugal

I originally joined Felsted in 2005 but had a 5-year stint out in Bahrain and Portugal before returning to Felsted in 2012 for year 7. I have always enjoyed my music and play the trumpet and piano, as well as singing in the choir. I have played rugby since I joined Felsted, but I made the switch over to football last year, and now play goalkeeper for the 1XI.

Diletta - Italy

One of the particularities that I truly like about Felsted is that they encourage you to do many activities. Not all of them are compulsory but almost all of them are super interesting. These are really important if study the IB Diploma. If you participate, you are guaranteed to meet lots of new people.
