About Felsted School:
Felsted School was founded in 1564, offering children aged four to eighteen a first-class all-round education, based on a safe, rural 80-acre village campus in stunning North Essex, only one hour from London and Cambridge. Felsted welcomes students from all over the world to appreciate a leading British boarding school education, plus offers day and a range of flexible boarding options to suit modern family life, with daily bus routes from across the region.
Felsted has a formidable reputation for boys' & girls' cricket; locally, regionally and nationally. Overseen by Felsted’s experienced Director of Cricket, Jason Gallian (ex-England, Essex & Notts) and Carla Rudd (current Super League player), Felsted offers both boys and girls a well-established cricket programme that develops as they progress through the school.
Several former Felstedians have gone on to become professionals for County and England teams, including Derek Pringle, John Stephenson, Nick Knight, Tim Phillips, Jordan Cox, Will Buttleman and Grace Poole.
