Executive Headteacher's Welcome

Welcome to Chestnut Park Primary School 

Thank you for expressing an interest in Chestnut Park Primary School, the first of GLF Schools within Croydon. 

We are a three-form entry primary school which opened in September 2015. In September 2016 we moved into our newly built premises on St James Road where, currently , we have Reception and Years 1 to 5. By September 2021 we will be an all through primary school. In June 2018 we were proud to be judged OUTSTANDING by Ofsted - a testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff.

With our growing team of staff, we are excited by the opportunity to provide a relevant, irresistible curriculum which promotes a love of learning and secures the highest standard for every child, even in these challenging times.

At Chestnut Park Primary School, we believe in working with the local community to ensure school is a place 'where children grow, learn and flourish together'. This ethos is embedded within our vision, values and aims. A whole school focus on language development ensures our children make good progress throughout their time at Chestnut Park. If you are looking for a reception school place for 2021, please do contact our school where you will receive a warm welcome from our staff and children.

For all parent and public enquiries, please contact the Office Manager, Natasha Rainford-Hay on

We look forward to welcoming you to our school.
