Felixstow Community School (FCS) is a small Department for Education public school that is currently under the guidance of a DfE Capacity Management Plan and zone which was gazetted on April 30th 2020.

FCS is committed to the development of a community environment, where teachers, parents, students and extended community work together as partners in learning with a progressive education and creative arts focus and high expectations for every learner.

As we are a small school we have limited places and operate under a Capacity Management Plan and zone.

Felixstow Community School zone
A school zone is a defined area from which the school accepts its core intake of students.

Felixstow Community School operates a school zone within the area bounded by:

  • The River Torrens, Riverside Drive, Langman Grove, Cardigan Avenue, Payneham Road, Glynburn Road, Allen Avenue, Scott Street, Davis Road, Almond Avenue, Castres Street, Barnes Road, Castres Street, Avenue Road, Rosella Street, Portrush Road, Payneham Road and O G Road.

An online map of the Felixstow Community School zone and a search tool to indicate if an applicant’s home address is within the school zone is available here.
