What Our Staff Say

Working at South Chingford Foundation School is truly a unique experience. Our strong vision and ethos encourage all staff and students to strive toward the same goal, and our small, family orientated community is positive; driving students to be the best version of themselves. The positive teaching and learning environment and broad enrichment programme inspires our students to take part in life-changing experiences, and to contribute that towards their lives, and witness them develop into independent, confident, ambitious and well-rounded young adults is incredibly rewarding.


Our school offers both student and staff a valued education. As a smaller school, students truly reap the benefits as staff are passionate about going above and beyond to support them in realising their ambitions. Working within a culture such as this is very fulfilling, with all staff supportive of one another, appreciative, friendly and with senior leader’s visionary for the future success of the school.


Having worked across both schools within the Trust, I have witnessed the transformational journey and progress that both have been on. Students enjoy coming to school as they feel valued and welcomed, the inclusive community reflects the diversity of cultures within our local community, and success is measured beyond just academia, encouraging every student to realise their potential and take advantage of the opportunities available to them to broaden their horizons. Chingford Academies Trust is all that is good about education.
