Saint Felix School

An Education By The Sea – Broaden Your Horizon

Saint Felix School in an independent co-educational day and boarding school for children aged from 2 – 18, located close to the glorious seaside town of Southwold on the Suffolk coast.

With over 300 pupils on its roll, Saint Felix is enjoying its best reputation for decades for the quality of its academic teaching and learning.  We have recently featured in both the Times and Telegraph’s top independent schools for A Level and GCSE results and our progress score at Key Stage 5 ranks within the top 5% of all schools in the UK.

We promote inspirational teaching to small class sizes with an emphasis on achieving academic excellence through developing the individual as a whole. The community spirit is strong, instilling school values at the expense of nothing else. Our broad curriculum of 25 subjects and extensive offer of more than 40 sporting and enrichment activities enables us to provide opportunities for all children to develop their own particular talents, wherever they may lie.  The school enjoys a large open site in 70 acres of outstanding natural beauty and our facilities include a sports hall, dance studio, 25 metre swimming pool, fitness centre and theatre along with a textiles and art studio, and Sixth Form Study Centre and Refectory Café.  It is a great place to learn, work, grow and live.

With three boarding houses, Saint Felix School has, for a long time, enjoyed a boarding community that is rich in its diversity of cultural and ethnic backgrounds.
