Friends' School


Saffron Walden CB11 3EB


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.
