Our School

We believe that working in partnership with families, involving them in children’s learning, is a strength of our school.  The school has had a strong tradition of working with families for over 120 years.  We are a small family orientated school and our size enables us to reassure parents that we can really get to know their unique and special children.  Because we are small we can really spend time getting to know our families well.  Each year has 30 children or less, with every class having additional support to ensure your child achieves their very best.  Finding out and remembering all those little things about your child shows our care and commitment to you as a family.


Our Victorian landmark building has been remodelled on many occasions and now has a purpose built sports hall with sprung wooden flooring, an art room for large scale art works and a purpose built Early Years Centre, incorporating our Playgroup, Nursery Class and Reception Class in three distinct but adjacent areas. We have disabled and lift access.


Chillingham Road Primary School is a one form entry primary school for children aged between 3 years to 11 years.  We have a 26 place part time (15hrs) Nursery and places for 30 children per year from Reception to Year 6.  In addition we have a 24 place Playgroup taking children from the age of 2.

School premises and facilities are available to hire by the local community.  This is administered by Chillingham Road Sports & Arts Centre who can be contacted on 0191 2244356.  The Centre is accessed from the main school entrance off Chillingham Road.
