It enjoys excellent facilities, a dedicated staff, bright and hardworking pupils, and a site of 100 acres. There is a small community of international boarders.

Chigwell is a high performing school. As well as being an academic school, Chigwell has the reputation for providing a rich and full education, with plenty of opportunities for all pupils who are enthusiastic, co-operative and able.

There are over a hundred teachers and together with the support staff, there is a friendly, mutually-supportive atmosphere. All teaching staff contribute to the extra-curricular programme.
