Chigwell School Boarding

The students live in four extended family-style houses (two for girls and two for boys), and in each house, students of different nationalities live together with their house parents, who are experienced teachers and academic staff, and their families. In each house, a group of 7 or 8 students of different nationalities live together with the houseparents and their families. 

Boarders enjoy regular outings such as ice skating at Somerset House in London and various theatre productions as well as day trips to places like Brighton, Oxford and Cambridge.

Chigwell School Pastoral Care

The house system creates an identity and sense of belonging within the school. A key role for the house system is the pastoral care it offers; tutors tend to stick with tutor groups, so know their pupils (and often their parents) really well by the time they leave the school. 

Boarders here benefit from a dual pastoral support system, where they are also members of ‘day houses’ and are part of the school’s local student community.
