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, Pilates, Photography, Debating or Travel Media. 

Our job is to help your child unearth his or her strengths, interests and talents. It doesn’t matter what fields these lie in. Indeed, former Felstedians have held 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

 

Great mix of opportunities in things such as music and sport – children have time to develop interests that they can take on with them later.

Senior Activities - Spring 2021

While we know many of you enjoyed our microsite last year and the many options available there, we felt that maintaining our usual timetable and the opportunities for students and teachers to interact outside their usual academic classes was important. We also felt that students should be encouraged to take the opportunity to spend time on enrichment activities that will be of benefit to their general wellbeing. 

Challenges will be set via Google Classrooms; students have a set time to meet with their group but have the flexibility of taking a few days to complete their challenges so that they can plan their time around their needs. We hope this also allows for the wider family to get involved too. We’ll be posting challenges below so parents can view what has been set.  For more information please contact Rebecca Purdy, Assistant Head, rjp@felsted.org.
