Many move from the city to Chigwell, Loughton or Woodford to raise a family and Chigwell Schools are a key part of that equation. It’s that back to school time of year and if you have been too busy enjoying your Chigwell summer holidays school uniforms may have not been top of your list. Never fear John Lewis in partnership with Chigwell School and many others make it easy. 

They offer a service for buying the correct school uniform and if you need school-specific uniform in a bespoke size, they'll be happy to order it for you. The John Lewis & Partners allocated to Chigwell school can offer more details about the Special Measure service. 

Here are some of the John Lewis tips to help you find new school clothes: Measure your child beforehand. Remember to have a list of the school's requirements to hand. Allow for growth: when you're buying shirts, make sure you can fit two fingers inside the fastened collar. Choose simple styles with easy fastenings for younger children. Order name tapes in advance, so you'll have time to sew them on before the beginning of term. Good quality school clothes will give you years of wear and can often be handed on to a younger brother or sister, so don't economise on quality.

The Chigwell School’s uniform and sports kit are provided by the John Lewis Partnership. This is available online. You can try the full range of samples at John Lewis, Westfield in Stratford. Remember the Chigwell School Shop is also available for uniforms it's based in Westward Ho!, the old stable block by the Chigwell Junior School car park its open from noon – 5 pm. The School Shop provides a service for parents in supplying the uniform at a reasonable price; usually well below other school outfitters, in a convenient location and with the security of knowing that the item is acceptable as school uniform. A second-hand service is also available.
