|Co-educational, day and boarding|
Friends’ is a co-educational, Quaker day school for pupils aged between 3 and 18 with boarders from age 11. It occupies a beautiful site on the edge of Saffron Walden, a small market town with excellent transport links to Cambridge and London and within easy reach of international airports.
The Junior School takes pupils into the Nursery at rising 3 and into Reception at age 5, enjoying purpose built classrooms and facilities including outdoor play areas and use of the heated indoor swimming pool, sports hall and other specialist facilities in the Senior School.
The Senior School takes pupils from the age of 11 through to the Sixth Form. Students enjoy working in a fabulous Victorian building, built as a school in 1879 in a leafy green campus with access to more modern classrooms, science laboratories and other specialist facilities and spacious playing fields.
We are a lively and caring community with one simple aim: to realise the potential and talent of all pupils within a friendly but challenging environment. High standards of teaching and academic attainment are obviously hugely important to us, but we make sure they are complimented by a broader framework of personal development
Cambridge is a distance of 10 miles, London is just 45 miles' distance.
