Information about the School

Chigwell School is a leading independent foundation offering a first class education to boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 18.

We offer children a balanced education in a stable, traditional environment, but one nonetheless focused on the future. Renowned for our high academic standards, we set equal store by our wide range of extra-curricular activities, our well-developed sense of pastoral care, and the spiritual dimension to our life. Chigwell School is, above all, a community in which children can grow, for we seek to develop the whole person, so that ultimately he or she can enter the fast changing world of the 21st century with confidence and make a really positive contribution.

We work closely with parents and believe strongly in a partnership between school and home. When Chigwellians finally leave school, most have achieved academic results of which they can feel very proud and which enable them to thrive at university. Beyond that point, we want them to be eminently employable, able to work in teams, to get things done, to be resourceful, able to communicate, adaptable and always able to learn more.

We hope that the Chigwell pupils of today will make good citizens in the future, secure and confident in their own beliefs, and tolerant of others.

All appointments are subject to safer recruitment requirements to ensure the safeguarding of children and young people. All positions will involve appropriate checks and clearances.
