What the school says...
Saint Felix is a very special place in which to grow up and develop as a young person. Starting in the Nursery and Reception, we begin the slow, but rewarding, task of making each child ever more independent so that, as they progress through the school, they can take on increasing responsibility for all aspects of their lives and be as well prepared as possible to thrive in our rapidly changing modern world.
The ethos of Saint Felix focuses on the individual. Expectations are high and students achieve things here that they might, early in their school lives, have thought to be beyond their reach. This in part is due to the relationship between pupils and staff which is always professional - but warm and very supportive at the same time. The staff give generously of their time, energy and skills to support their pupils, whether they are teachers or those who work in the school in a myriad of other roles. It is this team that makes all the difference to the children in our care.
Everyone who visits us comments on our warm, friendly, relaxed, family atmosphere. On another level, they also discern a real sense of purpose, where pupils are motivated and ambitious. Our pupils and students are given every opportunity to develop their own interests and talents and yet much is demanded of them in terms of team work, communication and collegiate life. Academic success is one of our strongest aims and together with activities such as creative arts, equestrianism, music, sport and swimming, the wider curriculum provides every opportunity for individuals to acquire and practise those skills that are so sought after in the world beyond school. ...Read more
