Welcome to the Junior School

Friends' Junior School, Saffron Walden, Quaker Mosaics

Friends’ Junior School prides itself on its friendly, family feel. The school has outstand­ing facil­it­ies, includ­ing an indoor swim­ming pool and is set in extens­ive grounds. Chil­dren enjoy parti­cip­at­ing in a wide vari­ety of subjects and activ­it­ies enhanced by the use of Senior School facil­it­ies and expertise.

The Quaker ethos under­pins all of our pastoral work and every member of staff looks for ‘that of God’ in each and every child. Here at Friends’ chil­dren are nurtured, suppor­ted and encour­aged to reach their full poten­tial in all aspects of school life. They are encour­aged to stretch them­selves to ensure they produce their very best results both in academic and pastoral pursuits.  Our aim is to foster a real love of learn­ing and thirst for know­ledge that will see them through their whole school career and beyond.

Music and sport oppor­tun­it­ies are abund­ant at Friends’ and are key, along with our Forest School, in help­ing the chil­dren develop confid­ence and inde­pend­ence. Para­dox­ic­ally, these char­ac­ter­ist­ics also help them begin to under­stand the import­ance of team­work and respons­ib­il­ity in respect of their peers.
