AN UTTLESFORD school has received international recognition for its educational standards allowing pupils to go on and take part in worldwide events.
Felsted Schools has been awarded European Regional Membership of the Round Square after being accepted into an elite group consisting of only 80 schools in the world.
According to headmaster Dr Michael Walker, membership affords wonderful opportunities for exciting exchanges, trips and activities throughout the year for all year groups.
