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 of 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.

Great End to a Wonderful Year!

As we come to the end of the year we have a brief moment to reflect on the children’s wonderful achievements and what we have all accomplished collectively in the Chase Bridge community. Many excellent results on the sports field including a well-deserved silver medal in the highly competitive borough sports; great performances on stage culminating in a gold Sing-Up award and the stunning Summer Spectacular event in Twickenham Stadium. Children in year 6 also won first and second prizes in the national Cut Films awards recently with short films warning us about the dangers of smoking – if you haven’t seen them yet please click here and here.

I am also delighted to let you know about the outstanding academic achievements this year: standards in the infants and at the end of the juniors in year 6 are all way above those nationally and on most measures outstrip the Richmond averages, which, as I am sure you are aware, are the highest in the country.

So, congratulations again to the children for all their hard work and also the staff and parents for working tirelessly to provide the opportunities that have enabled them to achieve such high standards – a great way for us all to start the summer holidays! I hope you all manage to get a good break and I look forward to seeing you at the start of the new academic year on Wednesday 6th September at the normal time.
