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 School and nursery in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, with about 640 pupils.

It's All Kicking Off!

There’s always something happening at Chase Bridge and the last two weeks in school have been no exception! Euro 2016 has kicked off in France and the children were able to watch England vs Wales live in the Chase Hall yesterday—what a nail-biter! We also celebrated the Queen’s birthday last week; our top athletes competed in the Borough Sports; year 6 have been camping, making fires and learning to sail; we held an ‘Empty Classroom’ outdoor learning day today; years 2-5 visited Kneller Hall for a fantastic afternoon concert; children in years 2 and 4 took part in Richmond’s Battle of the Books … and our chicks have hatched in the nursery!

My thanks to the staff for making all these wonderful opportunities available to the children. As always, please look on our Facebook page and YouTube channel for more pictures and information.

Next week will be no less exciting for the children as we are holding our sports days: infants on Wednesday morning and juniors on Thursday morning. More detailed information will be circulated shortly about the events on Parentmail. Both sports days will start at 9.30am and should be finished by around 11.00am—and Mr Bruce has promised to arrange for the sun to shine on those days!
