Saint Felix is a unique and distinctive school. Set in 75 acres of outstanding natural beauty, it is one of the few schools which offer an ‘all through’ education, with Nursery, Pre-Preparatory, Preparatory and Senior departments located on the same campus.
Saint Felix deserves its reputation for having a warm family atmosphere. The School is well known for the quality of relationships between pupils and staff and for its excellent links with the local community. At Saint Felix, the aim is to provide a distinctive and exciting education where pupils are taken on a journey of self-discovery and challenged to find that there is more in them than they could ever have imagined. The focus is upon achieving the best possible academic results and equipping pupils with the skills they will need to cope with the challenges of an ever-changing modern world. It is the intention that pupils are prepared for the present and the future, and that they are taught how to have fun and to learn for life.
A well-structured timetable and a broad and balanced curriculum encourages children in the Pre-Preparatory and Preparatory departments to achieve their very best. Small class sizes and specialist teaching staff ensure excellent results from happy, well-mannered and confident pupils.
In the Senior Department, each individual child is encouraged to achieve the highest grade attainable, made possible by the expertise of committed, skilled and motivated teachers working in small class groups. A wide and distinctive range of subjects can be studied at GCSE, AS- and A-level.
