CHHS A-level students are celebrating after they scored A or A* in more than half of all their exams.

In the best set of A-level results the school has ever seen, nearly a third of students achieved an incredible three or more A*/A grades and 77% of all grades were A*-B. The average grade overall is B.

These fantastic results put Cheadle Hulme High School as the top non-selective state secondary school in the north of England!

More than 70% of students have been accepted at their first choice university. Many are going to top universities, with more than 60% heading to prestigious Russell Group universities and 70% to Sutton group universities to read subjects including medicine, law, classics and mechanical engineering.

Linda Magrath, CHHS headteacher, said: “We are extremely proud of the achievements of all our students. These results are very well-deserved – our students have worked so hard and we wish them the best of luck as they head off to the next stage of their lives.

“We are driven to provide young people with the best possible start in life. At the heart of this is our belief that for so many years there hasn’t been a level playing field for students who are educated in the state sector. As Cheadle Hulme High School shows, that ‘norm’ is being challenged every day.”

Over the last 12 months Cheadle Hulme High School has been named MEN Schools Awards Secondary School of the Year. It has been named in the top 3% of schools nationally for the progress that students make. The Good Schools Guide has recognised CHHS as the top fully comprehensive non-denominational state secondary school in the North West and last Summer’s GCSE results saw 40% of all exams graded at a 7/A or above.
