What the school offers its staff

Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) is the founder school of the Laurus Trust. We are a hugely oversubscribed school with a reputation locally, and further afield, for outstanding teaching and learning through the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds. CHHS was judged Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in 2011 and 2015.

In the 2023 KS4 Progress 8 Headline measure, CHHS came in the top 5% of non-selective schools nationally. We are delighted with the performance of the class of 2023’s GCSE results; a fantastic 47% of all GCSE grades were 7 or above, and a staggering 81% were grade 5 and above. 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.

In 2022 the progress of our disadvantaged students was Progress 8 +0.3, the national figure is -0.55. Our disadvantaged students make more progress than their non- disadvantaged peers nationally.

In 2023 CHHS has once again bucked the national trend with two thirds of all A Level grades at A*, A or B. An incredible 35 students, over a quarter of the Class of 2023, received 3 or more A* and A grades, and of those, a magnificent eight have gained highly competitive places either to study at Oxford or Cambridge to read Medicine or Veterinary Science at university.

We are delighted that CHHS is regularly named as one of the UK’s top-performing schools in The Sunday Times annual Parent Power Surveys. We are also extremely proud to have been selected as one of the first schools in England to become a lead Language Hub in the governments £15 million languages reboot. The aim of the network is to spread best practice in languages teaching to other schools and boost exam entries. The offer will give students aged 14-18 the opportunity to study German, Spanish and French through to Key Stage 5.

CHHS became an 11-18 school in September 2013, with approximately 1664 students on roll. Our dedicated Sixth Form Centre opened in September 2014. We are the founder school of a Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with an outstanding academic record.

CHHS has a strong commitment to continued professional development of all staff. The professional learning opportunities in school and beyond enable staff to engage in various internal communities of professional development. There is support given to staff who are undertaking ECT, Masters, CTeach and NPQ programmes. Many of our staff have also joined other external subject networks and professional development, such as Doctor of Education programmes.
