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.

Resolutions...

We already seem well into the new term and the New Year. It is a time when we all traditionally seem to have a race to see who will be the first one to break their New Year’s resolution in the family – it’s always hard to sustain all those good intentions! Nevertheless, the children have had some good ideas which we have talked about in assembly and are doing their best to stick to them …

Ishika said “I want to get better at making slime!”; Isla is determined to “get better at walking on stilts and eating choco-late - you have to try, try and try your best!”; Jack is clearly a very helpful boy and says he will “get better at loading the dishwasher everyday”; Adam is going “to start being nice to my brother”; Oliver is going to “become better learning my timetables”; and Kuba, I think, speaks for many of us saying “I want to get better at actually doing things rather than just saying I will do them”! I hope they are all successful in sticking with their resolutions.

Have a very Happy New Year!
