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.

2019 - Here we go!

A New Year and new resolutions - I hope too many haven’t fallen by the wayside already! There is certainly lots we are looking forward to at Chase Bridge and lots we want to achieve this year. The next few months are going to be exciting as we look forward to our Edible Playground being created in the wild area close to years 4&5 to enhance our ‘food curriculum’. We also have the build up to the Rugby World Cup in Japan which felt as though it had kicked-off on Thursday when year 6 met PMs Theresa May and Shinzo Abe from Japan. We have already begun to develop some links with a school and rugby club in Japan and are looking at ways we can use this opportunity to further enhance the curriculum for our children.

The start of the new term also means the children are excited about their new curriculum themes: Nursery and Reception will be learning about Heroes and Fairy tales; year 1 are learning about toys; year 2 will be Time Detectives; year 3 will be finding out about forces in their Pole to Pole topic; year 4 are learning about the Extreme Earth; year 5 Arabian Nights; and in addition to starting to prepare for the national tests in May, year 6 are also looking forward to learning about Greek life.
