Chigwell School

Chigwell is a co-educational school for pupils aged between 4 and 18 set in 100 acres of beautiful grounds. We offer a balanced education in a stable, traditional environment, but one nonetheless focussed on the future. Renowned for our high academic standards, we set equal store by our wide range of activities and our well developed sense of pastoral care. We aim to ensure that children have a happy and busy time at School but are well prepared for the 21st century world when they leave us.

Since its foundation in 1629, the School has always given means-tested financial support to a number of pupils whom we know will thrive at Chigwell but whose families cannot afford full fees. This support is known as a bursary which may be awarded in the form of a discount of up to 100% on tuition fees, depending on the financial circumstances of applicants. Chigwell encourages applications from pupils who, without a bursary, would not be able to access an education of the highest quality, but who would thrive with the academic, extra-curricular and developmental opportunities offered here. The School offers bursaries in the belief that a first-class education in the broadest sense can change lives of the individuals, whilst they are at school and for their future.

Further information on both bursaries and the range of scholarships offered may be found on the admissions pages of the Chigwell website.
