Felsted Philosophy of Learning    

Felsted’s holistic approach to learning aims to develop each pupil’s intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials. This brings powerful benefits, not just in academic terms, but in the development of a fully rounded individual. Pupils progress better at university, in business, with interests and with life in general.

Felsted’s size allows each student to be known extremely well by the teaching and pastoral team, complementing our individual approach to learning. As a fully co-educational school for over 30 years, our own research tells us that it is the way in which a child is taught as an individual that is important and not by being categorised, for example, by gender. Supportive academic tutoring through the House system ensures all students make excellent progress.
