I started Felsted in Year 5 as a full boarder and is an experience that will stay with me forever. From the first day I was welcomed in with open arms.
I was only 10 years old when I started boarding and I was really scared to be far away from home, but the staff were and still are very kind to me. They took their time to show me everything and now I really love coming to school. I have learnt a lot about myself and I believe that I have built friendships that will last a lifetime.
Even though I board seven days a week it doesn’t feel like it. This is because every week we have different activities and sports, and I am developing great life skills. For me Felsted is a home away from home.
