What says..

Mega results in shooting - teams beat everyone everywhere, including older siblings in senior schools (Wellington and Epsom College). Coach, who travels here from Wales ‘because he likes us’, secret weapon. At one time, the school was known locally as one of the less academic; no longer, with a strong and dedicated staff cohort and ever-enhanced strategies to ensure the curriculum and its delivery is top notch. Parents generally delighted with academic running. Weekly and flexi plus day boarding options from year 3 - latter can include ...

What the school says...

Feltonfleet is situated in Cobham, Surrey on a stunning 25 acre site of sports fields, landscaped play areas and pine woodlands. Pupils join the school in Pre-Prep and leave at 13 to join a wide variety of senior schools. A further intake occurs at Year 3 when the year group increases to 3 forms per year. Occasionally places are available in other year groups, particularly Years 4 and 7. We are proud of our recent ISI Inspection report (Oct 2018) which awarded us the highest category of 'Excellent' in every area of educational provision, our fantastic Common Entrance results and the increasing number of senior school scholarships awarded to our pupils.

In November 2019, Feltonfleet was shortlisted for two awards at the prestigious Tes Independent School Awards – the Sports Award and Wellbeing Initiative of the year. The judges were impressed by Feltonfleet’s strategic and structured approach to mental health across all areas of our community and our holistic sports programme embodying sporting values of Participation, Respect, Integrity, Determination and Enjoyment (PRIDE).

We pride ourselves on high quality teaching, outstanding pastoral care and the wealth of opportunities our pupils can enjoy. Early morning / after school care is available for pupils in Years 3 upwards, to help working parents; and weekly / flexi boarding in our Grade II listed Boarding House is immensely popular with girls and boys alike.

What The Good Schools Guide says


Since January 2018, Shelley Lance, previously deputy head. Theology degree from King's College London; began her teaching career at Alleyn’s, then taught at Whitgift, where she was head of lower school and responsible for the school’s pastoral care provision. She joined Feltonfleet in 2010.

A self-confessed ‘reluctant head’ - ‘I love the frontline coalface interaction, which can very easily be squeezed out when you’re leading a school,’ she explains. So she teaches RS and mindfulness, as well as sitting in on other classes, including in pre-prep, and doing gate duty every morning. ‘It can mean long days and be exhausting, but it pays dividends because I know all the teachers, children and parents, which facilitates easy communications and means I sense frustrations and know when changes are needed.’ Charismatic, grounded, gutsy...

Special Education Needs

At Feltonfleet, we endeavour to provide for the individual learner. We have a Head of SEN (SENCo)who works closely with the teaching staff, providing teachers with advice on planning and teaching through INSET, and working to ensure that pupils with a Specific Learning Difficulty (such as Dyslexia) or with other educational needs are given the best opportunities to achieve their potential throughout the curriculum. Both the SENCo and SEN teacher support sets in English and Maths as an additional teacher, working with groups or providing some individual attention. We have 3 peripatetic 1-1 specialists teachers who work with those pupils identified with a SpLD or other literacy/mathematical difficulties. Pupils are recommended by their teachers for these lessons. The SENCo ensures that all teachers are aware of the targets taught in these lessons and that they are used, where appropriate, in their own teaching objectives. A specialist peripatetic teacher for pupils with English as an Additional Language works in the same way.
