Welcome to Chesterton Primary School

Choosing a school for your child is a very important decision and we hope that this website provides you with all the necessary information to help you make an informed choice.

Welcome to Chesterton. We are an Ofsted Outstanding 2 Form Entry inner city primary school situated in the heart of Battersea, south west London. We are a UNICEF Rights Respecting School which holds the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child at its heart. Our rich curriculum empowers pupils to be active, global ctizens and develop a participatory approach to their world. Learning through rights allows our pupils to cultivate positive relationships with both peers and adults, supporting their education for life.

We're fortunate to have a Children's Centre co-located on our school site meaning we can offer education, and a wide range of services for families and their children aged 0 to 11. Our school leads the South West London Maths Hub, the Wandle Teaching School Alliance and the Wandle Early Years Hub.

Executive Headteacher


“An outstanding school that provides a very high quality of education for its pupils”

Middle Phase

This week Year 2 have been very busy learning outside the classroom! They packed their bags and set off to the Arctic on an adventure! During their adventure they discovered the things they needed the most to survive and the things they didn't... Water, Oxygen and food was essential but gruesomely toothbrushes were not! Year 4 and 5 have also had an exciting week as they were lucky enough to visit the Apollo Theatre to meet the author Dan Freedman as part of the Wicked Young Writer Awards.  They were treated to 2 live performances from the cast of Wicked which were amazing!  Dan Freedman also talked about his writing and his inspiration.  It was a great experience!
