Inspiring Passions

Listen to any ‘Desert Island Discs’ interview and you’ll hear of a pivotal moment in the interviewee’s life when a spark was ignited, a curiosity born or a life-long passion inspired. The inspiration invariably happens during the interviewee’s formative years, often at school. On occasion the role of a teacher is even publically acknowledged.

That is why at Felsted dedicated teachers will provide your child with a very rich diet of sport, music, drama and art alongside a plethora of extra curricular options such as, Medical society, Journalism, CCF, Cookery, D of E, Debating or Creative Writing.

Our job is to help your child unearth their strengths, interests and talents. It doesn’t matter what fields these lie in. Indeed, Felstedians have gone on to hold senior positions and seen success in such diverse areas as the arts, academia, business, media, medicine, the military, public service, science and sport. What matters is that your child finds his or her inspiration and leaves us with passions that will be fulfilling and sustaining in later life
