Felsted International Summer School gives children from all nationalities the opportunity to learn, keep busy and make new friends during an intensive yet rewarding four-week programme. This year, Felsted Summer School has gone from strength to strength, welcoming 175 students from 23 nationalities.
Those who spoke English as a first language were able to fully immerse themselves in the Summer School ethos, whilst those who struggled more with the language or cultural changes were guided by returning pupils, including a group of current young Felstedians.
Former Felsted pupils returned once again to join the dedicated team leading the cohort of students through their action-packed four week adventure.
There were plenty of new additions to the programme this year, including an elite Performing Arts Academy led by renowned Theatre Director and Old Felstedian, Max Stafford-Clark. The weeks of fun-filled activities also included some fantastic excursions into London and Cambridge as well as big attractions such as Thorpe Park, all in addition to the intensive academic programme and co-curricular timetable.
Director of Felsted Summer School, Mr Daniel Emmerson commented; “I feel incredibly privileged to have worked with such a remarkable and diligent team this year. I feel that our students had a phenomenal experience at what was our biggest and best summer school yet. I can't wait for 2017!”
