Saffron Walden County High School is popular and heavily oversubscribed. We admit 290 children from our priority admissions area in each year group and arrange them into 10 mixed tutor groups. All applications are evaluated against a set of published admissions criteria. These are to be found on our Admissions Policy. If you are keen for your child to gain a place at the school it is vital that you put SWCHS as your first preference on the application form.

If you are interested in visiting the school we can arrange for you to have a tour, please contact our admissions officer Alison Sharp
