Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Christ Church Hanham CE Primary!

Thank you for taking the time to explore our website and find out about our school community.

We are a two-form entry, Church of England Primary School for children aged 4 to 11. Although we are based in South Gloucestershire, our school is on the border of Bristol and not far away from the city of Bath; we are keen to celebrate and learn from our excellent location where we are fortunate to have access to such a range of historical and cultural reference points.

We have two classes per year group from EYFS to Year 6 with an intake of 60 per year, catering for up to 420 pupils. We are fortunate to have a large expanse of outdoor space including two playgrounds, a large field and a PlayPod as well as a wildlife and forest area within our school site.

At CCH, everything we do is driven by our core vision- Nurture, Grow, Flourish. Every member of our school team believes passionately that every child deserves excellence each and every day. Through prioritising relationships and getting to really know our children, we are able to understand them as unique individuals, ensuring that our curriculum and teaching is well-matched to their needs. Learning is our core business. It is our aim to ensure that CCH is a true learning community- a setting where all members of our community are inspired and deeply interested in learning in order for us all to continually grow and flourish- both individually and as a team.   

As a Church of England school, our vision is underpinned by our core Christian values; these values give us a shared reference point for discussing how we can be excellent human beings; people who show friendship, compassion and respect for each other and the world in which we live. A key part of our ethos is ensuring that we are fully inclusive to all, regardless of culture, language, need, family structure or faith. Our children will grow up to be citizens of a diverse world and it is our role to ensure that they are well-equipped to play their part in society.   

We are immensely proud of our young children and our community and we are always keen to welcome new members to Team CCH. If you are looking for a school place for your child, please do contact the school office to arrange a visit to see us in action.
