Prep Boarding

Lorem Ipsum Dolor

Children may start boarding from Year 5 in our homely awarding winning Prep Boarding House, called Hamilton House. Children may opt to board for a couple of nights or choose our weekly or full boarding option. Hamilton House has the capacity for 60 boarders, with dedicated bedrooms and relaxation/recreation areas for boys and girls.

Our committed and caring team are all familiar faces for our boarding children. With their encouragement, children feel at home and contribute to house life through joining in, enjoying being with their friends, eating and sleeping well and learning to manage and organise themselves. All alongside working hard and making the most of all that is on offer.

“I think Felsted is wonderful and am so grateful to all the people who work so hard to make it such a fantastic school where my son feels valued. Well done!”

BSA Sleep Champions

The Boarding Schools' Association (BSA) has awarded Felsted “Sleep Champion” status! The award comes after a BSA audit of the school's facilities and bedtime routines.

Boarding School life offers a unique environment that offers young people so many opportunities. One that is often not recognised is the opportunity for young people to achieve their sleep goals. 



“We were impressed by the way topics such as diversity and inclusion as well as sustainability were woven right through the school and not just stand-alone programmes or initiatives. The school is also bucking the trend with their incredible over-subscription for admissions: this is clearly a fantastic school that people want to send their children to.”

Our Boarding Stories

“The best thing about boarding is having all of your friends around you - it provides an amazing foundation with so many people - you get to experience so many wonderful things”

Shiro Weekly Boarder

“I started boarding when I was in Year 6 as a flexi boarder -  it was the best thing having fun with friends. Boarding at Felsted Prep prepared me very well for boarding in the Senior School. I would definitely recommend boarding at Felsted Prep”

Oly Flexi Boarder

I started boarding in Year 5 as a full time boarder . The best part of boarding is the independence you are given and the opportunity to spend time with friends. To sum it up in one word - FUN!
