Tracy HandfordEvery child that joins us takes an individual journey at Dame B’s, through which they flourish and succeed.

Set in the beautiful town of Saffron Walden, we pride ourselves on getting to know every child and their family.

We are not afraid to do things differently. Our approach, in both Pre-Prep and Prep, encourages young people to become independent thinkers – preparing them for life way beyond school.

Creativity and fun is everywhere – in our Forest School and inspiring art facilities, as well as in our clubs. From ballet to photography, rugby to rock band – there's something to capture the imagination of every child. 

From 3 to 11, our pupils share a willness to experiment, to question and to take on new challenges. They leave us full of enthusiasm, equipped with a love of learning and ready to take their next steps in life.

We warmly invite you to come and see us in action.
