Introduction from the Head

Introduction from the Head

I am delighted to be able to take this opportunity to introduce you to Chigwell School.  We are an independent school offering a full and rich education for boys and girls between the ages of 4 and 18.  Although we have a beautiful campus of 100 acres, we are a medium sized school in terms of overall pupil numbers.  This is important to us because we believe that it helps us to get to know pupils really well.

The education that we offer children takes place in a supportive, stable and traditional environment, but one nonetheless focused on the future.  Renowned for our high academic standards, we set equal score 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, and 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.   Above all, we want Chigwellians to fulfil their potential in all they do at Chigwell School, to enjoy their time with us and to be the very best they can.

The following website pages will enable you to get a feel for Chigwell and how we might develop the potential of your sons and daughters.  However, if you would like to know more and to see for yourselves how our community works in practice, you are very welcome to come and visit us.  My colleagues and I would be delighted to meet you and show you our School.
