The School 

Founded in 1629 by Samuel Harsnett, the son of a Colchester baker who went on to become Archbishop of York, Chigwell School stands on its original site with the original school building still in use.  However, whilst Chigwell of today is conscious of its long-standing history, it is a forward-looking, ambitious, co-educational independent school of 970 pupils aged four to eighteen.  It enjoys excellent facilities, a dedicated staff, bright and hardworking pupils, and a site of 100 acres.  There is a small community of international boarders.

Chigwell is a high performing school. As well as being an academic school, Chigwell has the reputation for providing a rich and full education, with plenty of opportunities for all pupils who are enthusiastic, co-operative and able.  There are over a hundred teachers and together with the support staff, there is a friendly, mutually-supportive atmosphere.  

The School offers a competitive salary for this position. In addition, staff at Chigwell School enjoy a significant range of benefits. The School places great emphasis on the professional development of all its staff with comprehensive continuing professional development and training.
