Examination Results


It has been another outstanding year for students at Cheadle Hulme High School.

The 2017 GCSE results saw 83% of students achieving standard passes in English and Mathematics, with an impressive 68% attaining the new gold standard of a grade 5+ in both English and Mathematics. This puts the school at the top of the tables in Stockport. A stellar 40% of exam entries graded at an A*/A/9/8/7.

26 students (10%) gained a grade 9 in Mathematics.
37 students (14%) gained a grade 9 in English.

Particular congratulations go to the:

  • 100 (39%) students achieving 5 or more A*/A/9/8/7 grades
  • 50 (19%) students who achieved 8 or more A*/A/9/8/7 grades
  • 40 students who got straight A*/A/9/8/7

Sixth Form

Furthermore, our Ofsted Outstanding Sixth Form has received matching Outstanding results.  Over 40% of our students attained 3x A*-B, with an impressive 70% of our A-level grades being A*-B.  The number of students going to top universities has once again increased with over half going to the prestigious Russell Group universities.

“The rates of progress made by students in English and mathematics from the time they enter the school in Year 7 and their GCSE examinations in Year 11 are very high, compared to those seen nationally. For example, in the latest results 81% of students made expected progress compared to 70% nationally and 41% made more-than-expected progress compared to 32% nationally in English. In mathematics, the rates of progress were even higher with 80% making expected progress compared to 65% nationally, and 43% making more-than-expected progress compared to 29% nationally…. A large proportion of the most able students reach the highest possible A* and A grades in their GCSE examinations and across many subjects in the school, including English and mathematics. The proportion attaining these grades is higher than that found nationally. For example, in 2013 over twice the national percentage of students attained A* or A in English… AS level results are higher than seen nationally and current progress for those students who continue into Year 13 is high.”
