Year 9 Entry

We offer 3 entry testing points for Year 9 - when pupils are in Year 6, Year 7 or Year 8. Wherever possible, we would encourage early application to avoid any disappointment.

Year 10 Entry 

Subject to availability of places, we accept applications for Year 10 entry and assessments take place in October prior to the year of entry, when pupils are in Year 9.  Please note that places may be limited and preference may be given to weekly or traditional boarders. Year 12 (Sixth Form) is the next entry point after Year 10.

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.

Key Dates

We made the decision to move our son to Felsted for Year 10. It was a hard decision, being the start of his GCSE course, but we could not be happier with the school. The fantastic thing about Felsted is how accommodating everyone there has been.
