Felsted receives the British Council’s International School Award
FELSTED’S commitment to bringing an international dimension to pupils’ education has been recognised by the British Council.
Both the senior and preparatory schools were bestowed with the prestigious International School Award, a distinction to demonstrate a school’s global outlook.
Some 17 per cent of senior school students at the co-educational boarding and day school are based overseas and represent more than 20 different countries, from Austria to Uganda.
All students, whatever their nationality, are encouraged to have a truly international view of the world and to develop an enthusiasm for understanding different ways of life and cultures, both here in the UK and abroad.
Assistant headteacher Tom Vignoles said: “We are delighted to have been given this prestigious award in recognition of the many strands of our total curriculum that together ensure that our students leave Felsted as informed global citizens.
