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.

‘Spring has Sprung…..’

‘… the grass is riz, I wonder where the birdies is?’ goes the song. Well, the chicks have hatched and now left the building for a better place … but, as always, the children have loved watching them hatch and looked after them really well. And, of course, the children are now thinking about eggs of the chocolate variety as we head towards the spring holiday break. We have had lots of spring and Easter events this week – the Nursery held a wonderful Easter show; the infants created and wore some beautiful Easter bonnets and the jun-iors decorated egg-cellent (sorry, it’s compulsory to use a pun like this at Easter) eggs around the theme of the winter Olympics.  Meanwhile our sports successes continue with fantastic performances from our gymnasts, netball and rugby players.

The spring has flown by and now we look forward to the excitement of the summer term – summaries of the curriculum are available on our website as always - click here to find out more. It just remains for me to say, have a wonderful holiday and I look forward to seeing the children back at school for the start of the new term on Tuesday 17th April at the normal time.
