Welcome

WelcomeIf 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.  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 and the children often write about their experiences on our school blog - please take time to look so you can get a sense of what a special place Chase Bridge is and perhaps make a comment too!

At Chase Bridge we set high standards  of work and behaviour.  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 Schoool and nursery in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, with about 640 pupils.

There seem to be lots of rumours and stories circulating about the fate of Kneller Hall at the moment. We have a close connection with the Royal Military School of Music not least because many families there have had children coming to Chase Bridge for the last 50 years. It is not my role to take a position on this matter but our local councillors and MP, Dr Mathias are opposing the MoD’s decision to sell Kneller Hall. An official petition can be signed by calling in to Ultralux (next to Tesco on Whitton High Street). You can also contact Dr Mathias’ office to get forms for signatures.

The children too have been telling stories and this week teams of children from year 2, 3 and 5 won Gold and Silver in the local storytelling festival. Congratulations to them and my thanks to all the teachers (and parents!) that prepared them for the event.

Last of all can I thank everyone again that took time to complete the annual survey. I will be sharing the outcomes shortly after they have been presented to the governing body next Wednesday as part of the annual review. Collectively the parent, staff and children’s surveys paint a picture of a happy, thriving school with a community that works together that helps children to achieve their very best. Your comments are particularly helpful (I read through every questionnaire received) and I will follow up with some parents if a name has been given and a particular concern has been raised.
