Parents speak highly of the school’s pastoral care. ‘They know the children really well, both tutors and subject staff, and everyone seems to know who to go to with a problem and feels comfortable with it.
The Good Schools Guide
Felsted’s boarding culture is at the heart of the holistic education we offer all our pupils. Irrespective of whether your child boards, and many choose to as they progress through the school, they will benefit tremendously from the boarding culture. There is no substitute for an extended day in affording your child time and space to explore their unique combination of passions and interests outside the classroom. This, in turn, greatly strengthens confidence within the classroom.
Many staff members live on site, generously investing as much time as your child requires. As such, they will know your child holistically in a way that isn’t possible in a typical day school. In this way mutual respect is born. Most importantly of all, though, is the community that a boarding culture creates. By living, working and sharing life’s inevitable ups and downs on one beautiful, spacious campus, both staff and pupils become fiercely loyal to the community. It is this loyalty that makes staff go the extra mile for their students and students commit to being the best they can be for their teachers, friends and school.
