Academic achievement is not the only important thing at Chigwell. We wish our pupils to become good citizens, decent human beings, successful employees and team leaders. This is why we attach great importance to extra curricular activities. A wide variety of clubs, societies and activities, many run by the pupils themselves, take place during the lunch break, after school and during the holidays. 

Boys and girls are encouraged to be inquisitive and broaden their horizons in the world beyond so that they can understand and appreciate different customs and cultures and learn to live and work together in harmony. 

The following pages illustrate how we endeavour to bring this about.
