Welcome to Saffron Walden County High School Website

Saffron Walden County High School is committed to providing education of exceptional quality for its local community. That we have been successful in this goal is shown by our examination results, our University successes, by our drama and musical performances, by our sporting activity, by the many and varied activities our pupils are involved in.

We are a big school - on the outside. It is that which allows us to provide an exceptional range of skills, expertise and resources for your children's benefit. But we are small - on the inside. We do not lose sight of the individual. A staff dedicated to supporting individuals in all they do ensures that our pupils are happy and secure in their time with us, so that they achieve their full potential.
