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.

Application deadlines

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.

"Living in Dubai, we made the decision to send both our children to Felsted Senior School in the UK. Our daughter attended Sixth Form and our son, Years 9 to 11.  
We wanted to send them to a school that would provide a stable and happy environment, where they would not only be nurtured and gain academically, but also partake in the extra-curricular activities and clubs offered.  Our decision to send them to Felsted was the right one, as the School provided all that and more.  The children settled in very well from the start; and the support and dedication of all the staff involved from the Housemasters, Matrons to the Teachers and Administrative staff could not have been more helpful.  The children have now left Felsted, but what they learnt and gained during their time there and the many friendships forged will no doubt stay with them for many years to come.
Thank you Felsted School!"
