Independent Co-Educational Day & Boarding School for Ages 2 - 18. The Best of British Boarding by the Sea.


Welcome to Saint Felix School. We are 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.

Our aim is to develop well-rounded students with the skills and the personality to make a success of their lives during and after their school years. We are very proud of our academic and sporting record, and the self-belief that we foster amongst all Saint Felix pupils, as individuals, to be the best that they can be.

Established over 125 years ago as an all-girls school, Saint Felix was a pioneer of its time, and this same spirit lives on today. Our broad curriculum and extensive offer of more than 40 enrichment activities enables us to provide opportunities for all children to develop their own particular talents, wherever they may lie.

Fully co-educational since 2002, our pupils come from a variety of backgrounds. Our highly regarded swimming programme attracts students from across the globe, while our prime location, friendly atmosphere and beautiful grounds also make us very attractive to parents and children closer to home in Suffolk and Norfolk.

As Headmaster I am incredibly proud of our pupils and staff. I now invite you to explore our website further and arrange a visit to come and see for yourself what makes Saint Felix so successful.
