An eye-watering 70% of students achieved 5 and above and 84% achieved grade 4 and above in both GCSE English and Maths, making this the best set of GCSE results the school has ever seen which is even more impressive given the return to pre-pandemic grading.

Dave Brown, Headteacher at Cheadle Hulme High School, said: 

“This year’s GCSE results are absolutely incredible – we couldn’t be prouder of our GCSE students who have worked consistently hard to achieve these grades. Particular thanks must go to their families who have supported them along the way; their hard work and determination has most definitely paid off!  

I would also like to pay tribute to the CHHS teachers as it’s their unswerving commitment and dedication to their students which has played a major part in our success this year. Results such as these definitely don’t happen by chance!  

We wish all our students the very best for their Life After Laurus wherever that takes them; their futures are very bright indeed!” 

Linda Magrath OBE, CEO of the Laurus Trust, added:  

“I absolutely couldn’t be more proud of the students and staff at CHHS who, against a backdrop of increasing grade boundaries and plummeting results, have achieved their best ever GCSE results!  

These exceptional results are a testament to the diligence and determination of the CHHS students and the dedication of our staff who, day in and day out, are always prepared to do ‘whatever it takes’, to ensure that our students get the very highest quality academic education. 

Our passionate and committed team of teachers and support staff have created an amazingly strong learning culture which has enabled the CHHS students to achieve the grades to open the door to the future of their choice.”
