Scholarships & Bursaries

Chigwell School has always done its best to ensure that children who would benefit from an education at the School are not excluded for financial reasons. We offer means-tested financial support with the payment of school fees to parents/guardians who would otherwise be unable to afford them. This support is known as a Bursary and these may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees, depending on the financial circumstances of applicants. For further details, please see our Bursaries Policy

CHIGWELL SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded each year primarily at 11 and 16. They are awarded in recognition of academic merit, irrespective of financial means.

MUSIC SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded at 11, 13 and 16.

ART and DRAMA SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded at 16.
Applications for scholarships and bursaries can be made on the Registration Form.
