Felsted is a popular co-ed boarding and day school (approx. 106 full boarders but around 424 students who board at least 3 nights a week). Felsted offers both A levels and the IB. The school was founded in 1564, but is a progressive and forward-thinking school. It is based on a rural 80 acre village campus in the north of Essex, approximately an hour from London. There is a wide range of extra-curricular options on offer, and sport is traditionally very strong at Felsted.
