I am delighted to be able to take this opportunity to introduce you to Chigwell School, an independent foundation offering a first class education to boys and girls between the ages of 7 and 18, and, with the introduction of the Pre Prep from September 2013, from age 4 to 7.
We offer children a balanced education in a stable, traditional environment, but one nonetheless focused on the future. Renowned for our high academic standards, we set equal score by our wide range of extra-curricular activities, our well-developed sense of pastoral care, and the spiritual dimension to our life. Chigwell School is, above all, a community in which children can grow, for we seek to develop the whole person, so that ultimately he or she can enter the fast changing world of the 21st century with confidence and make a really positive contribution.
We work closely with parents and believe strongly in a partnership between school and home. When Chigwellians finally leave school, most have achieved academic results of which they can feel very proud and which enable them to thrive at university. Beyond that point, we want them to be eminently employable, able to work in teams, to get things done, to be resourceful, able to communicate, adaptable and always able to learn more.
We hope that the Chigwell pupils of today will make good citizens in the future, secure and confident in their own beliefs, and tolerant of others.
Above all, we want Chigwellians to fulfil their potential in all they do at Chigwell School and to be the very best they can.
The following website pages explain how we go about developing the potential of your sons and daughters. If you would like to know more and to see for yourselves how our community works in practice, we invite you to come and visit us. My colleagues and I would be delighted to meet you and show you our School.
