What skills and experience we're looking for

“Art is not a mirror held up to reality but a hammer with which to shape it.”- Bertolt Brecht

With our continued growth, we are seeking to expand our Drama department. We are looking to appoint an enthusiastic, passionate and knowledgeable head of Drama, who can offer a high-quality learning experience within the department. This is a great opportunity for an experienced teacher who is looking for the next step in their careers. You will join our friendly and professional team in overseeing the Drama department.

In the Laurus Trust, we firmly believe that Drama learning plays a significant role in developing students academically and culturally – and ultimately in helping them to open the door to the future of their choice. The Cornerstone of Culture, Creativity & Rhetoric underlines our commitment to developing in our students an appreciation and understanding of the value of the Arts in all senses.

What the school offers its staff

Laurus Cheadle Hulme (LCH) is a non-selective, non-denominational Free School. It opened in September 2018. We currently have a total of 1071 students on roll.

Cheadle Hulme is a pleasant residential suburb on the edge of the Borough of Stockport, eleven miles south of the centre of Manchester. The location enjoys the advantages of proximity to the open countryside of Cheshire and the Peak District and the cultural and sporting activities of a major city.

Our students are housed in a purpose-built building with access to state-of-the-art facilities and overlooking Bruntwood Park, with our Year 11 students progressing to Sixth Forms in the Laurus Trust. We share the same site as Cheadle Hulme Primary School.

In 2023 Laurus Cheadle Hulme achieved an outstanding set of GCSE results with over 70% of students achieving at least a grade 4 standard pass and 61% a strong pass in English and Maths. Our Year 9 students also received phenomenal results in GCSE Spanish. 89% of our Year 9s achieved the gold standard of a grade 5 or better, 79% of students achieved at least a grade 6 or above and 42% of students achieved at least a grade 7 or above. These results far outstrip national Year 11 figures.

The school is run by the Laurus Trust and replicates the outstanding education offered by the Trust’s founder school, Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS), based in Stockport. CHHS is a hugely oversubscribed school and has been named as one of the UK’s top-performing schools in The Sunday Times, ranking as the 15th non-denominational comprehensive school in Manchester and the North West in the annual Parent Power Survey for 2022.
