Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) has once again been recognised in The Times and The Sunday Times Parent Power listing, being awarded ‘Northwest Comprehensive School of the Year 2024’.

The Parent Power rankings, which The Times and The Sunday Times have published for over thirty year, are determined by parent surveys along with GCSE and A Level data.

This year’s survey praises the way that ‘school life is underpinned by the four cornerstones of Leadership and Service, Competition and Physical Endeavour, Culture, Creative and Rhetoric, and Academic Aspiration’. The survey also highlights the range of extra-curricular activities on offer for students along with the fantastic work pastoral teams carry out across the school community, to help students to thrive in all environments.

Executive Head of School, Dave Brown said:

“I am extremely proud of our whole school community for this achievement. This is a testament to the hard work of our staff, who set uncompromising standards for students to be able to flourish and be successful.”

Cheadle Hulme High School epitomises the vision of the Laurus Trust, which is ‘for everyone regardless of background or circumstance to be inspired, to thrive in all environments, to recognise what it takes to succeed, to set aspirational goals and work hard to achieve them.’
