Leadership | Responsibility | Decision-making | Adventure | Socialisation

The final stepping-stone marks the conclusion of the Feltonfleet experience, which for many pupils culminates in applications for scholarships at their senior schools.  


Subject teaching is firmly focused on Common Entrance.  However, alongside their academic preparation, pupils flourish in assuming wider responsibilities within the Feltonfleet community , from taking meaningful leadership roles to representing the school at the highest level in sporting, creative and academic spheres. As the Upper School pupils mature and take on further leadership opportunities, they are rewarded with their own Upper School Common Room, a purpose built space set within the school grounds, created, owned and managed by our Year 8 pupils.

The Enrichment provision, including the Upper School Graduation Programme, the Leonardo Lectures and annual academic symposiums with partner schools, offers exciting opportunities for academic and personal development. Individuals can challenge themselves and develop resilience through pursuing a wide variety of interests.

As their Destination 13 journey concludes, pupils cultivate a mature approach to learning, confident in making independent decisions. Above all they feel a sense of security and belonging that proves indispensable throughout their lives. They have become the best version of themselves.
