Welcome to our school
Head Teacher's Welcome
Welcome to Chesham School! Find out what's going on in your child's class and please do feedback to us what you find useful or what else you would like to see within the site. Chesham is a wonderful school full of fantastic children, fabulous staff and teachers and supportive parents. It is a happy and friendly place to work and play (as recognised by OFSTED in 2006, 2009 and 2013) - have a look and see just some of what we get up to.
We are always busy with plenty of hard work, but there are also lots of other exciting events to look forwards to. Years 3 and 4 will once again be heading for a fabulous weekend of outdoor activities at Robinwood in April whilst Years 5 and 6 are heading to Sussex for a long weekend of activity and exploration in June. All classes will also enjoy at least two organised visits during the year to support and supplement their curricular studies.
Last term included our second Parents' Evening of the year; Further sporting success for our cross country, football and netball teams; themed days to support World Book day and Red Nose day and Swimming for Year 4.
The Friends of Chesham (our PTA) continue to raise thousands of pounds for school through a number of well organised and fun activities over the years. Their second 'Film Night' took place to watch "Inside Out" and was again very well attended; as were the Glo Disco and Christmas Fayre.
We raised over £300 towards Action Aid's campaign and over £100 to support Bury Cancer support Group. Thank you everyone for your support.
After school clubs and activities continue to take place every night and most dinnertimes, offering children varying opportunities to try something different. The football, netball and cross country teams have already made us very proud with their superb efforts and deserved success. Year 4 completed their 4 week intensive swimming programme in January whilst our choir, Raise the Roof, performed at Bury Met in February as part of the amazing One World concert.
The year 2017 promises to be as exciting, hard working and packed as ever: our 50th birthday celebrations in May are certainly something to look forwards to.
