About Chesterton Primary School

We are an Outstanding 2 Form Entry inner city primary school situated in the heart of Battersea, South West London. Our children are highly rewarding to teach; they respond well to encouragement to work hard and achieve their best.

Chesterton is designated a National Teaching School and also a National Maths Hub, providing a range of teaching and learning challenges for staff and pupils alike. The school’s leadership and management is judged Outstanding by Ofsted and consists of a Headteacher, Head of School, three Deputy Heads and an Assistant Head who work collaboratively to ensure that high standards of teaching and learning are maintained throughout all subjects.

The school boasts a range of fresh and vibrant spaces for learning. Outside we have a sensory garden and an al fresco classroom from where children can observe wildlife down in our pond as well as up in the trees. The nest boxes are fitted with cameras allowing Spring Watch Chesterton to take place.

When not observing, we like to ensure the children take an active role in the care and welfare of the school pets; as well as collecting the eggs from our feathered friends. We are committed to fostering reading for pleasure and offer an outdoor reading garden, in addition to a comfortable and well-stocked library.

Our specialist music and PE departments allow us to take part in inter-school and inter-borough events and competitions; scoring goals being a speciality of the girls’ football team and producing great sounds like that of our Samba band. Both a breakfast club and an after school care club are offered as part of our Extended School Provision. A Centre for Children and Families has also been built on site providing high quality facilities and support for families and their under-3s.
