Open Days, Tours & Prospectus

For entry in September 2020

We appreciate that finding the right school for your son or daughter is an important decision and you will want to get to know Chigwell School in the fullest sense. The aim of our Open Days are to provide a taste of all aspects of the School so that you can decide whether your son or daughter will thrive here and be happy.

As part of your Open Day visit, you will hear from the Headmaster as well as the Head of Sixth Form, Junior School and Pre Prep as appropriate.  You will also meet pupils who will guide you on a tour and you will have plenty of opportunity to talk with them and staff on an informal basis.

Tours will include visits to:

  • Academic departments
  • Drama Centre
  • Walde Music School
  • Sports facilities
  • Risham Sarao Sixth Form Centre

Plus other key areas across our extensive site that will be part of your son or daughter’s everyday life at Chigwell.

The School’s admissions team will be present at all events to assist families with the admissions process for all age groups, including advice on bursaries, scholarships and bus routes as appropriate.

We would be delighted to meet you at one of our Open Days.

If you would like to let us know that you are coming to any of the following events, please book your place here.

If you are unable to attend one of our Open Days, many families tell us that they find it helpful to have an individual tour on a typical working day.
