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.

Remembering ...

Well done Pranav who was specially selected to read ‘We Shall Keep the Faith’ as part of the Remembrance service held at Kneller Hall by the Royal Military School of Music - he read superbly! It was a cold but sunny morning with a bright blue sky. After the solemn but moving service, accompanied by the bandsmen, the children got to march to the beat of the drum before returning to school.

Meanwhile the children have been working hard on their maths – I hope you saw Seren and Amisha’s work high-lighted on Facebook. Y6 have also been solving lots of tricky but interesting problems as part of the national Primary Maths Challenge. This is a prestigious competition involving about 80,000 children. Last year three of our Year 6s won silver medals reaching about the last 100– an exceptional achievement. About 40 of our children have attempted the first round today and we’re cross-ing our fingers that some of them will pass to the next stage. See if you can solve the problem  below that was in one of the past tests …

Maths Challenge 

In 4 years time I will be 5 times as old as I was 16 years ago.  How old am I?

And lastly (but definitely not least!) we have updated our website with the provisional results from the national tests (SATs). And what excellent results they are too! The outcomes show that Chase Bridge’s performance is not only better than that nationally in all measures, but in nearly every case is also better than the Richmond average, which is no mean feat given that Richmond is top in the country. We are particularly pleased with the results in mathematics as this has been a focus of improvement for us over the past year. http://www.chasebridge.richmond.sch.uk/Performance-information
