We were thrilled to be recently featured by lifestyle website, Muddy Stilettos, and to appear in their Best Schools Guide. Read some of the highlights below!

"Perched on the outskirts of London and fringing the great, green boughs of Epping forest, this selective co-ed is set in 100 acres of prime Essex countryside and offers a holistic approach to education."

Warm, charismatic, inspiring: three words that spring to mind when you chat with Chigwell School’s confidence-boosting head, Michael Punt.

Community is king here

"Despite being a selective independent on the outskirts of London, Chigwell School seems to have fostered a village feel that encompasses not just the students and their families, but the entire area. Neighbours join the school quiz nights; parents have been known to nip into the canteen for a coffee together; the headmaster visits bursary application families at home rather than school. In short, this is a hands-on, there-for-everyone approach."

It’s encouraging that a lust for life-long learning seems to be most valued here.


Good for...

"Kids who love to get in the mix. Offering co-ed learning from pre-prep to sixth form, Chigwell School is a thoroughly modern set-up and the seniors’ impressive drama suite is particularly standout. If your child is naturally inquisitive and into everything, they’ll excel here: introverts will be brought out of their shell, budding environmentalists will love the focus on outdoor learning, and the school’s unstuffy, down-to-earth values cultivate adventure, independence and empathy over keeping up good appearances. There’s a palpable family vibe here sociable kids and parents will love."
