Welcome to The Firs School, Chester

A leading independent primary school for boys and girls aged 0-11 years, 

focused on nurturing every pupil and equipping them with the learning and tools to become the very best that they can be.

On behalf of all the staff and children at The Firs School, I would like to welcome you to our website which offers a broad view of our school and gives an insight into the many successes and achievements of our students.

Our team of dedicated staff, both teaching and non-teaching provide an inspiring, structured, and supportive learning environment in which every child is nurtured to realise their true potential.

David Girvan  Head Teacher



We will achieve our vision by being creative, inclusive, nurturing potential, and we use The Firs Way to guide our aims.

We are helpful and kind

We are honest and truthful

We listen respectfully

We share

We forgive

We learn from our mistakes.

"Almost all pupils display very strong levels of self-esteem in their activities around school, benefiting from the small, nurturing environment.”
