What is a Laurus School education?

For every student regardless of background or circumstance


We work hard to ensure that every member of our school community has access to a rich and diverse range of opportunities.  Our sister school, Cheadle Hulme High School, has demonstrated consistently high attainment in the percentage of disadvantaged pupils achieving A*-C in English and Maths.

...to achieve the grades


We provide outstanding teaching and a “no excuses” approach to attendance and behaviour, challenging our students to do their very best.  They learn about the importance of success, and how to cope with setbacks, not as failure but as a springboard to better achievement.

...and develop the qualities


Our House system, Electives programme and extra curricular activities encourage participation, develop self belief, team work and leadership skills. We inspire our students to broaden their horizons and believe that ‘anything is possible’.

...which will open the door to the future of their choice.


We develop ambitious and confident young adults with the ability to access the most competitive and prestigious universities and professions. Our Optimates programme nurtures students as they embark on their future after school.

The vision is embodied in the Laurus Trust Cornerstones
