Pre-Prep (age 4+)

Admissions Update Spring 2021

One of the best ways to get to know Felsted is to visit during an Open Day, but due to the current Covid-19 related restrictions we are not able to welcome large groups of visitors at this time. We have filmed a number of virtual tours and have hosted a number of virtual Open Events for different age groups that can be viewed in retrospect.

We encourage you to explore these to give you an initial insight into life at Felsted. We will also be hosting more virtual Open Events over the coming months. Please do reach out to our Admissions Team who will be able to assist you with any queries you may have.

2021 Entry

We still have a few places remaining for Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 entry in September 2021. Please contact our Admissions Registrar, Susan Godfrey, to discuss.

If you would like to submit an application, we will ask you to register and we will then arrange for you and your child to have a short video call with the Head of Stewart House (Reception to Year 2). We can also arrange a virtual meeting with the Headmaster if you would like to discuss anything with him.

For Reception entry, we are asking parents and nurseries / pre-schools to complete a questionnaire to help us get to know your child and understand their current development stage. Places are offered after we have reviewed both questionnaires.

For Year 1 and Year 2 entry, please send a copy of  your child’s most recent school report to We will ask your child’s current school for a reference and we may ask for a sample of recent maths and English work and a picture of your child’s current reading book.

Register with us

We encourage you to register with us by completing our Registration Form and fee as soon as you are ready; once we have this, you are then included on our list of applicants for the appropriate year and will be contacted for taster days and any assessments required. Please contact the Admissions Office before registering, to ensure we have places remaining.

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

Next Steps: Reception Entry 2022

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.
