Welcome to our wonderful school. I feel privileged to be headteacher of such a fantastic place! Chestnuts is a 2 form entry Primary School with a diverse and creative community. We thrive on making learning fun, and are on a journey to ensure children have creative and enjoyable learning experiences. 

At Chestnuts we are not afraid to try new and exciting initiatives. We believe in high expectations and a thorough curriculum. 

We believe that children deserve and thrive on excitement in their learning, they learn best through having a wide range of opportunities that make their learning experiences irresistible.  We believe that children learn best when immersed in their learning and when it is fun and engaging.

We are fully committed to working with parents to give children the very best start in their education as well as supporting children to be well-rounded individuals and good citizens in the future.  We have high expectations of everyone in our community ensuring we effectively work together to ensure children reach their potential in all areas of their personal development and learning. 

We like and look forward to adults coming into the school to share their skills, knowledge and experiences. We hold regular weekend community events; we have an incredibly supportive Parent School Association. 

We offer weekly swimming lessons with our own qualified swimming instructor, to support children in their physical development. 

We look forward to welcoming you to Chestnuts and showing you what we are all about. Have a look around our website and if you can’t find the information you are looking for on our website please do not hesitate to contact us via the contacts links.
