The school is also bucking the trend with their incredible oversubscription for admissions: this is clearly a fantastic school that people want to send their children to.  Gwen Byrom TES Awards 

Reception Entry

Year 1 and 2 Entry

Please contact the Admissions Office to discuss your enquiry. As well as September admissions, we are often able to offer in-year admissions, as long as spaces are available. 

If you would like to find out more, please contact the Admissions Office to find out about availability at our Welcome Wednesdays.

If you would like to proceed with an application, we will ask you to register and complete a short online application form, where we ask you to send through a copy of your child’s most recent school report and any other relevant reports, as well as a Pupil Information Form. We will also request a reference from your child’s current school.

We will invite your child to join us for a taster day in their current year group and they should bring their current school reading book with them. Prospective pupils will be welcomed by their class buddy for the day and they will join in with normal lessons. We carry out informal assessments as part of the class activity. Taster days can be arranged on an individual basis and places offered once this process is complete.

Our Little Voices Big Thoughts project started in 2017 and has been following pupils through the phases of Felsted Prep. From a Mermaid to a Scientist or an Engineer. Find out how Felsted develops individual character and prepares pupils to go out into the world and make a difference.

I wish to thank the Felsted dream team on the superb job you have done this term. I’m sure intake at Reception takes energy every year, but this year must have been wild! We are both so very impressed with the experience our daughter has had to the start of her school life; simple things for us like hearing her progression in reading words in particular when she calls them out on TV or road signs in passing, speaking some Spanish within a few weeks, her writing, her love of books and reading already! Honestly just lovely for us to see.
