Welcome to our Stephen Perse Dame Bradbury’s virtual open day experience. It will show how our school, set in the heart of Saffron Walden, is a distinctive, creative community where ideas, individuals and imaginations thrive. Learn how we build on discovery and individual potential, where horizons expand rapidly involving science, languages, sports, music and drama and where positive learning habits and thinking skills are part of every lesson.

Our boys and girls share a willingness to experiment and question, to rise to the challenge of a highly connected and ever-changing world. Find out how we offer a breadth of experience in a stimulating environment where every pupil is known and celebrated. Discover how our approach encourages young people to become independent thinkers, preparing them for life way beyond school.
