About Us

Chapelfield is a Primary school, which caters for children between the ages of 4 and 11 years.  There is also a Nursery Class for children from the age of 3 years.  At 11+ children transfer to High School, the closest being Philips High School. Some children go to independent schools in Bury, Bolton or elsewhere.

Situated at the end of Clough Street, approximately half way along Stand Lane, Chapelfield Primary School was officially opened in June 1981, although the traditions of the school and ethos of high standards were founded long before in the two primary schools which Chapelfield replaced.

The school serves a wide area from its position in the south of Radcliffe, adjacent to the Whitefield border. The accommodation, which is for approximately 300 pupils includes a nursery, hall, eleven classrooms, resource areas, group teaching areas, practical work areas, a Parents Room, a large playground and playing field and a well fitted modern kitchen where school meals are prepared each day.
