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

RPT Tennis Centre of Excellence

The Academy has now opened, with a wide range of coaching available from the Summer Term. Barry Collis will support Lee Austrin in delivering this initiative.

Tennis facilities at Saint Felix will improve as the business evolves and Lee will lead tuition provision across the whole school. Indoor and outdoor class lessons will be available, as well as high performance individual lessons, other individualised coaching, school holiday lessons/camps and adult lessons.

Lee has recently developed a strong reputation locally at Beccles Tennis Club, including coaching Saint Felix pupils, following his repatriation from Thailand where he developed national champions and the profile of tennis at the British International School, Phuket.

Lee Austrin is a certified RPT coach and his leadership will elevate Saint Felix to become the first UK registered RPT centre. RPT (Registro Professional de Tenis) was founded in Spain in 1989 and is now widely regarded to be global leader in the provision of tennis tuition. RPT coaching takes a highly technical approach to the sport, ensuring that players develop the strongest possible all round game from an early age.

Lee’s appointment is expected to lead to significant pupil recruitment locally and from overseas, enabling Saint Felix to compete strongly against other top tennis schools within the UK.
