What we do and who we are

The Development Office maintains a comprehensive database of Old Chigwellians and works to keep them in touch with the school and each other by organising events and producing publications.  All information held by the Development Office is only available to the School for non-commercial purposes in line with data protection requirements.

Chigwell School has long depended on the far-sighted generosity of its supporters, which began with its foundation in 1629 by Samuel Harsnett who established the School for the education of poor scholars.  One of those poor scholars was William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania and the city of Philadelphia.  Over the years, supporters who wish to see the School prosper have made generous contributions, helping Chigwell to become what is today.  However, we must continue this tradition and welcome support, involvement and charitable giving from Old Chigwellians, parents past and present, and friends of the School. 

Development particularly supports the School in the provision of funds for capital projects and the provision of means-tested bursaries.  We therefore continue to help serve all pupils by providing the best facilities possible necessary for a first class education, and promoting social mobility through our drive to widen access.  This approach, we believe, is very much in the sympathy with our Founder’s intentions.

If you would like to find out more, we would be delighted to hear from you.
