Welcome to our
Virtual Open Evening

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all prospective students of Cheadle Hulme High School and their parents/carers. I am sorry that we are unable to physically welcome you into school this year, but I do hope the video and other information here is helpful to you.

I know that you will want to know what it is like to be a student at Cheadle Hulme High School and I want to give you a clear message about the standards that are important to us. Cheadle Hulme High School is first and foremost a safe school. Attitudes and behaviour are excellent and all students can get on with their learning without worrying about disruption. The students wear their uniform with pride and they look immaculate and our students have incredibly high levels of attendance. Our staff and students want to come to school and are happy here.

Cheadle Hulme High School is a vibrant and exciting place where students and staff achieve amazing things, but make no mistake, this is achieved through excellent behaviour, dedicated study and hard work. We are incredibly proud of the academic achievements of our students. Our students’ results regularly put us in the top 3% of schools nationally. but there is so much more to Cheadle Hulme High School than results. We have an incredibly dedicated pastoral care and a thriving and competitive House system! Click here to find out more about this. Our students are also able to participate in a wide range of high quality extracurricular activities.

If you do choose us, I promise that we will work as hard as we can, in partnership with you, to attain the very highest standards of education and welfare for your child. If I can be of any further help please do not hesitate to contact me at school.

The Laurus Trust Vision

The Laurus Trust’s vision is for every student, 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 to work hard to achieve them.

Together with an unashamedly academic approach to education, this vision is embraced by all Trust schools and is underpinned by four key cornerstones. These are:

  • Academic Aspiration – we want our students to be curious and develop a thirst for knowledge.
  • Competition and Physical Endeavour – we want students to approach competition with optimism and vitality.
  • Culture, Creativity and Rhetoric – alongside academic success, we passionately believe in the importance of education in its broadest sense and we ensure the fullest participation in art, music and drama.
  • Leadership and Service – we place great importance on both leadership and participation and encourage students to take on roles of responsibility.


Our outstanding teachers have high expectations of all students, from our youngest reception pupils to our sixth formers, and our young people, including those who have special educational needs and/or disabilities or who are supported by Pupil Premium, make rapid and sustained progress. Indeed, we believe that socially disadvantaged students should receive the same education as those in the best private schools and our curriculum structure is based on students developing a core body of knowledge.

In this positive learning environment, students’ attitudes to learning are exemplary. Staff and students are unreservedly positive about both behaviour and safety.

By taking advantage of everything a Laurus school can offer our young people we aim to ensure that they can all open the door to the future of their choice.

‘The magic of this job is when you see those young adults opening up that envelope on results day. It’s seeing the results of all that hard work by the staff, the students and the parents’ – Laurus Trust CEO Linda Magrath
