Chigwell School welcomes applications from all pupils regardless of race, religion, sex and disabilities. If parents feel any reasonable adjustment should be made when assessing your child please let us know.
Chigwell fosters an environment where children can discover and nurture spiritual values. Whilst the inspiration and ideals of the School’s foundations are Anglican, nowadays all the principal world faiths are represented on the School’s roll, and we value and respect this important dimension to our life. We believe worship is important and everyone in the School attends services in the Chapel and/or Church twice a week. Although these services are grounded in the Christian faith, we draw consciously on the insights and experiences of the world’s great religious traditions and are inclusive of all pupils. We delight in what we have in common, but also respect and affirm distinctiveness.
In assessing your child we take account of the following factors:
• Performance in the exam
• Group session (7+ only)
• Performance in the interview
• The report from the current head teacher
