COVID-19: Admissions Update 

One of the best ways to get to know Felsted is to visit, but during this time of Covid-19 related restrictions unfortunately our site is currently closed to visitors. However, we were lucky enough to be able to film some virtual tours before this happened and we encourage you to explore these to give you some insight into life at Felsted. Alternatively you can register for one of our Virtual Open Events below. We hope to be able to welcome visitors on site as soon as restrictions are lifted. Our Admissions Team are on hand to talk through any queries you may have and are happy to arrange virtual meetings with our Headmaster and key members of staff.

We do still have a few places in some year groups for September 2020 entry, but please get in touch as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
 

Virtual Open Events

One of the best ways to get to know Felsted Sixth Form is to visit, but during this time of Covid-19 restrictions unfortunately our site is closed to visitors. However, we are excited to invite you to a Virtual Sixth Form Open Morning on Thursday 9 July. 

Our Sixth Form virtual Open Evening is an ideal way to gain a first impression of Felsted. You will have the opportunity to hear from the Headmaster, our Deputy Head (Academic), our Senior Housemaster about boarding life and current pupils who will give you an insight into their experience at Felsted. Admissions staff will also be on hand to explain our admissions procedures. You will have a chance to ask questions in our live Q&A, and following the main event, we will be hosting a session on Scholarships & Bursaries.

If you are interested in any specific areas, we can arrange for our Head of Departments to contact you for an in depth chat eg Sport, Art, DT, Music and the Performing Arts.
