Welcome toChingford Foundation School

A very warm welcome to Chingford Foundation School. We have been providing an excellent education to our Chingford community since 1938. Steeped in history, our alumni is impressive; it is proof positive of the high calibre, traditional and ambitious curriculum on offer. 

We pursue excellence in all that we do, resolute in the belief that every student should be given the opportunity to fulfil their potential and build 'firm foundations' for their future. 

Our expectations are high. Academic progress, traditional values and personal development are strong. Our impressive wider enrichment programme including the arts, science, sport, Duke of Edinburgh and leadership programmes. Alongside the academic curriculum, this provides opportunities for students to build character alongside knowledge.  

Our students, staff, parents and carers are incredibly proud of our school and our Trust, the Chingford Academies Trust. We work hard to support the wellbeing of our students and staff and as a consequence our learning community is built on strong, respectful, friendly and caring relationships. Our Chingford Academies Trust Charter describes the importance of relationships and forms the guiding principles which we work to, each and every one of us, every day.
