An Introduction to Chigwell School
I am delighted to welcome you to Chigwell School and I encourage you to come to see us for yourself.
If you do, you will find that we are a busy school where pupils of all ages work closely with each other and their teachers. In Chigwell pupils we look for academic ambition and a genuine eagerness to be involved in all that the School has to offer.
Ours is a happy, mutually-supportive, family-orientated community in which parents and staff work in partnership to help pupils reach their full potential and where friendships formed often last a lifetime.
Chigwell School was founded in 1629 and for nearly four centuries we have been preparing pupils to go out into the world. Clearly that world has evolved a great deal since then, and whilst we are conscious of our long heritage, we are always looking to innovate so that Chigwellians are well-prepared to contribute positively, to inspire change for the better and to continue learning throughout their lives.
We are very proud of our pupils and we strive to ensure that, through the curriculum and the wide range of opportunities available to them beyond the classroom, each becomes the very best they can be: independent in spirit, adventurous in approach and empathetic in how they treat others.
