Friends' School is an independent fee-paying school (Public School) located in Saffron Walden, Essex, situated approximately 12 miles south of the city of Cambridge. The school is co-educational and accommodates children between the ages of 3 and 18 (boarders and day pupils).
Friends' School, Saffron Walden was founded as part of the Quakers' Clerkenwell workhouse in London in 1702, fifty years after George Fox founded the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). It moved to Saffron Walden in the late 19th century. It is the only Quaker school in England to have survived continuously for 300 years. It hosts Quaker Southern Summer School and Quaker Southern Senior Conference alternately, switching every four years.
