The Firs is a coeducational independent primary school specialising in the delivery of high quality education for boys and girls aged 3-11. Founded by Mrs Florence Longman in 1945, it has been in the ownership of the same family for three generations. Set in well maintained wooded grounds and conveniently located less than two miles north of Chester city centre, we encourage our children to flourish within a caring, Christian environment which supports children from all faiths and none. Thanks to high academic standards, continuing investment and an emphasis on promoting both the personal and academic development of every child, The Firs is recognised as one of Cheshire’s leading independent schools.
