Jigsaw Chelmsford Turns 5! 

Abbie from Jigsaw Chelmsford reflects on her time as a Jigsaw Franchisee, as her school turns 5 this term! 


“I cannot believe how fast the 5 year mark has come around- it feels like I only opened the school yesterday! I can still remember how nervous I was on the first day of opening Jigsaw Chelmsford, but as soon as the customers began to arrive my nerves slipped away.


I have always felt a sense of privilege that people choose to send their wonderful children to my school. It has been a very eventful 5 years with building a new school, navigating the business through covid and most importantly building a Jigsaw community in Chelmsford.

For me, the highlights of the last 5 years have been creating our wonderful shows each year, seeing my students make new friends, and the performing arts fun we had during the holiday workshops.

I am so proud of my school, the staff, the students and the community we have built in the last 5 years.

The support from Jigsaw Arts and their team has motivated me to reach for the stars with my business! I love working with like-minded, creative individuals who are student focused with their own businesses. Jigsaw truly has given me the place where I belong.”  – Abbie, Jigsaw Chelmsford


Abbie has decided to open up a second Jigsaw school in Brentwood, Essex. Jigsaw Brentwood will be opening its doors this September 2023.  We can’t wait for the launch of Abbie’s new business!
