Welcome

Welcome

If you are new to our school we hope you enjoy visiting the website and find the information you are looking for and, in future, that we have the pleasure of welcoming you in person.  We organise school tours for prospective parents throughout the year - please contact us if you would like to know more about life at Chase Bridge or have a look on our Prospective Parents webpage by clicking here.  Click here for an introductory message from our Headteacher, Andrew King.

The school community works closely together to provide exceptional opportunities for our children.  Many of these are recorded on our Facebook page, YouTube channel or in our school newsletters - please take time to have look so you can get a sense of life at Chase Bridge and why it is such a special place.

At Chase Bridge we set high standards for work and behaviour. Our most fundamental principle is that we believe intelligence and ability are not fixed and if our children develop skills such as resilience, resourcefulness, reflectiveness and reciprocity (learning to share and work as a team), they can meet their full potential. We expect all members of the school community - children, staff, parents and governors - to work together to maintain these standards and for children to work purposefully towards achieving their best at all times.  Our school motto is Excel at Learning; Express Your Talents; Care for Others.

Chase Bridge first opened as a Primary School in 1953.  Our location is unique: we have two special neighbours, the Rugby Football Union in Twickenham Stadium and the Royal Military School of Music at Kneller Hall.  We are also close to the Harlequins ground, The Stoop, and many of our families are passionate rugby supporters!  In recent years the school has undergone a programme of expansion and refurbishment to allow us to accommodate additional classes - children, staff and parents are all very proud of our 'new' school!  Today we are a three form entry Community Primary School and nursery in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, with about 640 pupils.

It’s All Go this Autumn!

It feels as though we are getting properly stuck in to the autumn term now and it’s wonderful to see all the exciting activities, teaching and learning that are going on throughout the school. The lead picture above is year 5—they’re all learning what is was like in a Victorian classroom. They started with a fingernail inspection and so far no one has had to stand in the corner with the dunces cap on! There are little snippets of what the different year groups are up to on the back page of the newsletter with links to the curriculum pages on the website that give more detail about the teaching plans for the year and what you can do to help your children. Click here for our curriculum pages.

And now it’s autumn it’s conker season! Even at my age, when I probably should know better, I still get excited about finding beautiful conkers. The children can bring them in and if they have them on a string have battles with them at playtime – I’m looking forward to it already!
