Helping the next generation
Bursaries provide financial support for children who show great promise in the entrance exam process, but whose families could not otherwise afford to send them to Chigwell School.
In addition, the Chigwell School Bursary Fund provides financial support to families whose children did not join the School with an assisted place, but whose circumstances have since changed.
Changing lives through Bursaries
“Attending Chigwell School had many benefits, benefits that represented true differences from alternate paths that were available to me at 11, ultimately shaping my life trajectory.”
“One of the key benefits was the supportive learning environment. The small class sizes, attentive nature of the teachers and the all-round caring environment meant that I was not allowed to fall behind. Most importantly, no doors of opportunity were closed.
It was only heading into sixth form that I truly began to narrow down on subject matter that I was passionate about – this process being aided by the number of extra-curricular activities available at Chigwell. For me, the William’s Project and the Geography Society gave me a clear indication of my passions, which led me to attend the London School of Economics. Firstly as an undergraduate, studying Geography with Economics and later as a postgraduate, studying Local Economic Development, after being awarded a full scholarship.”
