Language Level Guidelines
Best years for entry
The best years for an overseas student to enter Felsted are in Years 7 to 10 (ages 11 to 14) and Year 12 (age 16). We will accept students mid-year if space allows, but this is rare and not to be recommended after Year 9.
Number of places for international students
In Years 7-8, we have approximately 10 boarding places for international students.
In Years 9 and above, we have approximately 105 international boarding places (20% of total). Felsted aims to recruit a wide range of nationalities (currently around 25) and to restrict the number per nationality.
Sixth Form entry requirements
For Sixth Form entry (Year 12, age 16 on entry) a standard equivalent to 5 GCSE passes at grade B or above is expected.
Short term places
We are happy to consider international students for one year only in Years 7 and 8 (ages 11 and 12 on entry). For Years 9 and above placements for one term or one year are not available.
Due to high demand, please apply as early as possible to secure a place. However, places can become available at any time, so do please contact us at any time.
Scholarships for overseas students
The same scholarships are available to overseas students as to UK students. These include Academic, Music, Art, Design and Technology, Drama and Sport Scholarships. Applications from outstanding musicians for the joint Junior Guildhall/Felsted Music Scholarships are also welcome.
