Felixstowe College was a girls' independent school, located in Felixstowe, Suffolk. It was established in 1929[1] and closed in 1994. In 1995, a different school called Felixstowe International College was founded on part of the site of Felixstowe College. Other former boarding houses, playing fields and the main school site were sold off for private housing.


The school's original name was Uplands School. It became Felixstowe Ladies' College in January 1929. In the 1930s, the name changed to Felixstowe College for Girls, and then to Felixstowe College.


The main boarding houses were Cranmer, Latimer, Ridley and Tyndale. Wycliffe was the first year house (Lower IV). Sixth form accommodation was located in Old Hooper, Coverdale and the Sixth Form Centre.
