School philosophy: Chigwell School was founded in 1629 and for nearly four centuries the school has been preparing pupils to go out into the world. It is a happy, mutually supportive, family-orientated community in which parents and sta™ work in partnershi­p to help pupils reach their full potential and where friendship­s formed often last a lifetime. It is a busy school where pupils of all ages work closely with each other and their teachers. There is a special warmth about the nurturing Chigwell community, with excellent facilities set in a beautiful open site of 100 acres, within view of the City of London. Ultimately, Chigwell aims that each and every pupil will forge their own path to success, true to their motto: Find a way or make a way.

Academic record: Chigwell is an academical­ly selective co-educationa­l school for 4- to 18-year-olds with boarding available at Sixth Form. Chigwell pupils are academical­ly ambitious and have a genuine eagerness to be involved in all that the school has to o™er. Pupils are regularly o™ered places among some of the most competitiv­e universiti­es in the UK and overseas. This year was no exception and examples include o™ers from Imperial, UCL, King’s, LSE, Durham, Bristol, Warwick, Edinburgh, Nottingham, Exeter, and several o™ers from Oxford and Cambridge.

Extra-curricular: Chigwell o™ers a vast array of activities, designed to provide each pupil the opportunit­y to get involved and discover passions. The most popular sports are football, hockey, cricket and netball but pupils also compete at national and internatio­nal level, in sports like karate and golf to name a few.

The school has embarked on a developmen­t plan to further enhance its provision and has invested in the constructi­on of a new sports centre, which is due for completion in September 2023. It will be home to a six-lane 25-meter swimming pool, five-court multipurpo­se sports hall, gym, individual studios, and a café.

School Philosophy: We value the unique talents of every one of our pupils and aim to instil in them a love of learning which prepares them for the opportunit­ies, responsibi­lities and experience­s of life.
