The majority of our children are day pupils, but the Boarding House remains a key feature of the school and on any weekday evening from Monday to Thursday (and some occasional Friday nights) anywhere up to 52 pupils will be boarding at school. In addition an increasing number of pupils join the boarders for any combination of breakfast, supper, or evening study periods and activities.  we call this Day Boarding.

Facilities

The school enjoys a superb range of facilities on its 25 acre site.

In early 2015 a brand new state of the art 400 seat Performing Arts centre opened to complement the Drama, Music and Dance departments. The new, award nominated space, which includes the Ashbee Theatre and Dance Studio, is linked to the original building via an impressive glass corridor which houses the Main Reception. It encloses a marvellously landscaped courtyard garden, open to pedestrian access and very much for the use of the entire community.  The theatre has retractable seating for up to 400 and advanced sound and light systems, providing a wonderful performance space and event venue.

Set against the existing Arts and Crafts main school building, the new building offers a clean style and a modern contrast to the elaborate features of the Grade II Listed boarding house.  The theatre has retractable seating for up to 400 and advanced sound and light systems, providing a wonderful performance space and event venue.  The theatre has retractable seating for up to 400 and advanced sound and light systems, providing a wonderful performance space and event venue.

Calvi House (the Pre-Prep department) was re-developed in 2009 to give our youngest pupils the best learning environment.  They enjoy a suite of spacious classrooms with interactive white boards, landscaped play areas, their own purpose-built hall, as well as a well-stocked Library and Digital Learning facility.

In the Prep School specialist Science, Digital Learning and Design Technology labs are used by all pupils, and there are further specialist facilities for Music, Art and Drama.  The school has a purpose built suite of Music practice rooms and a Memorial Hall which is used for informal concerts and rehearsals. 2013 saw the re-development of our Junior Department (Years 3 and 4) which opened in early 2014. This self-contained block is now home to seven spacious classrooms whilst continuing to provide pupils with access to their own suite of i-Pads and their own kitchen garden.

A major development of the school’s sporting facilities in 2010 means that, in addition to an extremely well-equipped sports hall, extensive playing fields and hard surface tennis courts, Feltonfleet boasts a 15m indoor swimming pool, floodlit all-weather Astroturf pitch and climbing wall. The school has its own rifle ranges for both air-rifle and .22 shooting. Beyond the playing fields a band of woodland is home to the eco-pond and a wilderness area for play and Science study.
