A Message from the CEO

At South Chingford Foundation School, we pride ourselves on our close-knit community, where we understand every student as an individual; enabling us to drive their ambition, nurture their passions and inspire new ways of thinking in our rapidly changing world.

Our vision is to build ambition in every learner; opening up the opportunities available to them so that they reach their potential and more.

We call this ‘The South Chingford Experience’ which is achieved through 

a rigorous, academic curriculum
  a wide range of enrichment opportunities beyond the classroom
delivery of our vision, mission and values
 a dedication to pastoral care 

Our values can be observed in all that we do. Our students’ ambitious attitudes to learning mean that they achieve well, our ‘Hall of Fame is Testament’ to this; in trying to be the best version of themselves they become resilient, independent young citizens, ready for the world beyond the school gates; they are unified by the strong sense of community that South Chingford has created, as a consequence our past students tell us that their school experience lives long and fondly in their memory.

Within the Chingford Academies Trust, South Chingford has continued to grow as a centre of educational excellence; where the ability to combine our resources, work together to provide the very best in traditional education and offer a unique learning environment defined by academic and cultural success ensures that every student is well-equipped for the demands of today’s global and ever-changing society.

We want our students to leave South Chingford confident in themselves and their achievements; as young adults who are courageous, aspirational and prepared to make informed decisions about their future. On behalf of all students and staff, we are all incredibly proud of our school and welcome you to visit our school, experience our ambitious culture and meet with our team, to find out more about how we can make sure your child is as successful as they possibly can be.
