Leaving a legacy gift in your will is possibly the greatest gift you can offer during your lifetime.

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. 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.
Whatever amount you choose to give will make a difference. Legacy gifts can be used to support:

• Bursaries – allowing pupils with the aptitude to attend the School, but not the financial resources, to benefit from a Chigwell education. As well as providing full scholarships, we also offer assistance to those pupils whose personal circumstances change whilst at school, so that they can complete their education with us.
• Buildings – ensuring that our pupils benefit from the best possible facilities for many years to come.

What type of legacy gift can you leave?

The 1629 Society

we hope that those who plan to leave a legacy will inform us of their intentions so that we can thank them for their kindness and generosity during their lifetime.
In order that we can recognise the kindness of those who have remembered Chigwell in their Will, we have founded the 1629 Society, marking the year our School was founded by Samuel Harsnett. All those who have made us aware of their intention to include the School in their Will automatically become a member.
