Laurus Ryecroft is a secondary free school which opened in September 2018 in Tameside for 150 year 7 students, growing year on year to full capacity of 1050 students and 300 sixth form students. The school replicates the outstanding provision offered by the Laurus Trust founding school Cheadle Hulme High School.
The Laurus Trust is a growing multi-academy trust in the North West of England.
The vision of the Trust is for everyone 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. We are unashamedly academic. In the recent Staff Engagement Survey 97% of our employees stated that they would recommend working for Laurus Trust to their friends. In 2018/19 our average Teacher turnover rate for Secondary schools was 3.26%, which falls way below the National Average of 15%.
All our Laurus Schools are hugely oversubscribed and have a reputation, both locally and further afield, for outstanding teaching and learning through the relentless pursuit of excellence and the determination to ensure that every child succeeds. Our founder school Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) was judged Outstanding in every single category by Ofsted in 2011 and 2015. CHHS ranked as the 15th non-denominational comprehensive school nationwide in the annual Times Parent Power Survey 2019. This year CHHS is one of the top ten most sought after schools in Greater Manchester with more than 40% of all GCSEs awarded at Grade 7 or above, whilst an impressive 69% scored grades 9-5 in English and Maths. Grade 5 or above is considered the government’s gold standard at GCSE level.
Our students’ behaviour is faultless. (Ofsted 2015)

A rich diet of research informed pedagogy ensures that our teachers are at the cutting edge of their practice. To support this we financially support masters and doctoral level study alongside the NPQ suite of qualifications.
