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 for 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.

A Summer of Success!

As we reach the end of term – the end of the academic year – it’s nice to reflect back with the children and staff on the many achievements and successes. The celebration of the performing arts at our Summer Spectacular; the outstanding results achieved by our children across the whole school in their assessments and tests that exceed Richmond averages in nearly every subject bench-mark; our rugby team winning our international competition; the Chase Bees arriving; the amazing development of our growing areas in our Edible Playground and the recognition given by being awarded first place in the Richmond in Bloom competition; the Summer Fair; our winning haka performed in Twickenham Stadium; Silver medal in Richmond schools’ hotly contested Battle of the Books; meeting two prime ministers and visiting 10 Downing Street; John and Ben achieving silver medals in the prestigious Primary Maths Challenge

We have also had special praise again from the Mayor of London, no less! We are one of the very few schools (34 out of about 1,500 schools in London) to have had the Schools for Success award for the second year running. Schools are identified based on the Department for Education’s performance tables with a focus on lower attaining and disadvantaged groups of pupils. As a result we are being asked to share some of our practice more widely amongst other London schools. Congratulations everyone – what a wonderful acknowledgement of all the hard work from all sections of our community: staff, parents, governors and, not least, the children!

And finally we send our best wishes to our year 6 pupils as they move on to secondary school. I hope you all have a very happy holi-day. I look forward to seeing you all back on Thursday 5th September at the normal time.
