OUTSTANDING" was the term used to describe Felsted Preparatory School in a recent government report on its boarding provisions.
Ofsted reported on the social care provided by Felsted. The report covered all aspects of boarding for which the school received "outstanding" on all criteria, bar achieving economic wellbeing for which it received a good rating.
Head of Boarding at the school, Andy Finch, said: "To receive such a high result is a superb accolade and is a great reward to the staff for all their efforts.
"It shows that the boarders' welfare is at the heart of everything we do in the House and the School. You can't get better than outstanding.
"The inspector looked at all the paperwork, questioned the staff, parents and the boarders about every aspect of life in the Boarding House"
The report stated that "the overall quality rating is outstanding". It added: "Boarders' experiences are very positive with lots of fun being had and many rating the school as excellent.
