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.

Settling In To The Start Of Term

It now feels as though we are properly settled into the autumn term with the weather a little more normal for the time of year, the clubs starting this week and all the children – including nursery and reception - in class. We have only had one disappointed child in reception: her mother promised her she would learn to read when she went to big school and much to her disappointment came out at the end of the first day and said “I still can’t read yet!” … if only learning were that easy!

Other year groups have been getting into the swing of things quickly: Year 3 have had an Egyptian day and all looked fabulous in their ancient Egyptian clothes – I’ve never see so many pharaohs, princesses and mummies in one place! Year 5 have also been celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. Look at all the pictures about this and more on our Facebook page.
