Medical and Catering

Medical Centre

​Chigwell has at least one qualified nurse on duty throughout the school day and there are nurses on call for boarders outside of this time.  In addition, a number of staff are first aid trained.  Parents will always be contacted by a school nurse if their child needs to be taken home or requires further medical treatment and parents who have any concern should contact the Medical Centre by telephone on 020 8501 5763.



Pupils lead busy lives at Chigwell and it is important that they are well fed.  We work closely with the school caterers, Chartwells, to provide a variety of good quality and healthy food which pupils enjoy.  There are also a number of initiatives to promote cooking and healthy eating.  Current menus are available here
