Parent Power

Cheadle Hulme High School's 2016 examination results have seen us
shoot up the ranks in the Times Parent Power survey.

The annual survey ranks schools by attainment of students at grades A* - B at 'A' level and A*/A at GCSE.
The A level grades are double weighted.

In the list of top secondary state schools, CHHS holds 25th position nationally for comprehensive schools.
This is a fantastic achievement for students and staff and particularly for the Sixth Form,
celebrating only its second set of A level results.

 CHHS in Top 5% UK-wide in Progress 8 Results

The new school performance measure 'Progress 8' has shown the outstanding comprehensive
Cheadle Hulme High School in Stockport to be one of the highest performing schools in the country.

Progress 8 is a new secondary accountability measure aimed at measuring the progress of pupils across a selected set of 8 subjects. For a further explanation please see the following video from the Department for Education.

Progress 8 Measure 

Progress 8 is based on students’ progress measured across eight subjects: English; mathematics; three other English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages); and three further subjects, which can be from the range of EBacc subjects, or can be any other approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.

The official performance tables place Cheadle Hulme High School in the top 5% nationally.

Progress 8 Score

This is the highest rating in Stockport and also shows Cheadle Hulme High School outperforming
many schools throughout the region. Looking at Progress 8 across Greater Manchester the
comprehensive Cheadle Hulme High School outperforms all of the grammar schools in Trafford.

Linda Magrath, headteacher at Cheadle Hulme High School, says ‘I am immensely proud of the
progress all our students make. Our aim is to ensure our students go on to a future of their
choosing. This new performance measure fully recognises their achievements and the hard work
of all the staff here at Cheadle Hulme High School.’

Philip Mould OBE

BBC star Philip Mould OBE visited Cheadle Hulme High School recently to deliver a talk to students.

Philp is an English Art Dealer, Writer and Broadcaster. He has made a number of major art discoveries, including some of Thomas Gainsborough's earliest known works, the only known portrait of Prince Arthur Tudor and a number of lost works by Sir Anthony Van Dyck.

Philip told of his experiences growing up and how he fell in love with antiques thanks to his mother. She suffered polio, and was in a wheelchair so would send Philip, aged six, into antiques shops to bring things out to her for inspection. By just 11 years old, Philip could read hallmarks on silver and by the time he’d reached early teens he was art dealing.

Philip’s talk had a focus on communication skills and pursuing your passion. Students commented on how interesting and inspirational the talk was.

Harriet Ruane, Cheadle Hulme Sixth Form student said:

“As someone who has always had an interest in both art and history, the history of art was surprisingly something I knew little about, so this is what persuaded me to go along to the talk - and it's safe to say I was not disappointed. Philip's marvelous stories, anecdotes and advice left me with a newfound passion for the subject by the end of the hour. He sent us away with three messages: focus, communication and above all, passion. I left the auditorium motivated and inspired and art history is something I am now seriously considering for the future! I was absolutely captivated for the entirety of Philip's speech, and I truly hope to cross paths with him again one day.”

Class of 2017

Thursday 18th May saw Mrs. Goodeve gather Year 11 students in the Auditorium for a Celebration Leavers’ Assembly before the exams begin in earnest. The assembly gave everyone a chance to reflect on their time at CHHS, celebrate successes and share some wonderful memories.
The assembly included fantastic performances from our very own Soul Band, a presentation of genuine and novelty awards and even a CHHS staff version of ‘Car Pool Karaoke’. Students laughed and watched in astonishment as they saw Mrs. Goodeve take on Justin Timberlake’s ‘Can’t stop the feeling’ along with groups of staff in her car.

Awards presented included the ‘Badgetastic Award’ which went to Clara, Millie and Amber who managed to amass huge number of CHHS reward badges over 5 years. The ‘Change the World Award’ went to Tillie for her outstanding commitment and devotion to school life and the wider world. Charlie received the ‘Posers Award’ as he stepped up to receive his certificate sporting a back-to-front school jumper as a fashion statement. The ‘Bafta Award’ to Max for his talented acting skills.

Form Tutors also presented awards to students who’d made a great contribution to their form over the past 5 years and Heads of House awards were given for students who had shown commitment to their House. Thanks were given for the wonderful job that Form Tutors have done to support students, prepare them for the wider world and help embed the school ethos in their form groups.

Everyone at CHHS would like to wish our Year 11 students good luck as they prepare for their exams and future endeavors, many students will stay on at our Outstanding Sixth Form whilst others will head to FE Colleges or start an Apprenticeship.

Mrs. Goodeve, Head of Year 11 at Cheadle Hulme High School said:

“It has been a privilege and a pleasure to have been Head of Year to such a wonderful year group. I wish them every success for their GCSEs and for the next chapter of their journey”

New Tennis Courts

We have unveiled three fantastic new tennis courts as a part of a project to improve sporting facilities for students and the local community.

The courts have been resurfaced using a specialist material that will also make the courts suitable for other sports.

Physical activity is an important aspect of the curriculum at Cheadle Hulme High School, we believe that physical activity and competition, both inter and intra school, are vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health.

The brand new tennis courts will be accessible to the public and members of Club Cheadle Hulme, which was recently renovated and includes a multi-gym, a main sports hall with a sprung floor, new lighting, a climbing wall and brand new changing rooms.

Mrs. Perry, Subject Leader of Physical Education said:

“The rejuvenation of the netball/tennis courts are a fantastic addition to our amazing facilities. The new surface will allow us to use them throughout the winter months and ensure that lessons and fixtures can go ahead regardless of the weather. We are looking forward to hosting some of the AEGON National Schools tennis fixtures this term!”

Cheadle Hulme High School and Club Cheadle Hulme are both entities of The Laurus Trust, a newly formed trust which is supported by the Law Family Educational Trust (LFET) – established by Andrew Law, a former student of Cheadle Hulme High School.

Laurus Trust launch

Hollywood star Orlando Bloom among special guests celebrating launch of the Multi Academy Trust in Greater Manchester

Hollywood star Orlando Bloom today joined students at Cheadle Hulme High School in Manchester to celebrate the launch of the Laurus Trust - a new multi-academy trust in the North-West of England with Cheadle Hulme High School as its founder academy.

Orlando was joined by acclaimed stage actor Paapa Essiedu (best known for his recent acclaimed role of Hamlet at the RSC last year) and both actors’ former drama coach Patsy Rodenburg, who has created a unique Culture, Creativity & Rhetoric Curriculum (“The Cicero Curriculum”) for the students across Laurus Trust schools. Orlando, Paapa and Patsy (who is a member of the RSC Board and known for her tireless passion for the importance of the spoken word) worked with the Education team from the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) to run a series of fun and inspiring sessions for students at Cheadle Hulme High School, an academy with a reputation for outstanding teaching that was recently named in the Sunday Times ‘Parent Power’ top 25 comprehensive schools in the country.

The workshops involved students in Year 7 (11-12 years old) and Year 12 (16-17 years old) – inspiring the students to explore and enjoy drama, but also teaching skills that will also help them with university and job interviews, confidence, critical thinking, debating, general presentation and more.

In addition to Cheadle Hulme High School, Gorsey Bank - a high performing local Primary School – has joined the Laurus Trust. The Laurus Trust also has four Free Schools in the pre-opening phase: Cheadle Hulme Primary School, Laurus Cheadle Hulme (an 11-16 High School) Didsbury High School (11-18) and a further school in Tameside (11-18) - all due to open in September 2018.

The Laurus Trust is supported by the Law Family Educational Trust (LFET) – established by Andrew Law, a former pupil of Cheadle Hulme High School.

Linda Magrath, Head Teacher of Cheadle Hulme High School, said:
“This was a fantastic occasion for all the students – it’s not every day that stars like Orlando and Paapa drop into our school! We are proud that Cheadle Hulme High Schools sits at the very heart of the Laurus Trust, which has big, exciting plans to really drive excellence in education in the North-West. Our students and teachers already achieve outstanding results – this new approach and investment will take us to the next level.”

Andrew Law, Chairman of LFET, and the sponsor of the Laurus Trust said:
“Over recent years there has been substantial progress in the academic performance of many state schools and there are great success stories out there, especially at Cheadle Hulme High School - my old school. This is about building on that strong academic foundation – recognising that outstanding exam results are only part of the necessary skill sets required to win top university places and thrive in careers. We want schools where students are able to reach their full potential and not be constrained by their family history or geographic location, and not to be afraid of failure.”

Orlando Bloom said:
“Studying the art of performance changed my life forever – opening the door to the career I love. I believe that every student, regardless of where they went to school, deserves the chance to learn these skills and it’s fantastic that Patsy and the Laurus Trust are placing such importance on this area. The focus on core areas like presence, rhetoric and performance is really giving these students the tools to succeed – whether its acting on stage or competing for the best jobs and university places.”

In addition to the LFET, Andrew Law’s other main charitable initiative is the Law Family Charitable Foundation (LFCF), which amongst other activities, is the principal funder for the charity Speakers for Schools. Speakers for Schools provides young people in UK state schools and colleges with access to talks from eminent leaders from sport, science, politics, business, academia, media and the arts - free of charge.

Club Cheadle Hulme Launch

The Laurus Trust celebrated phase one of a major £5 million refurbishment project at Cheadle Hulme High School on 1st December with the launch of its stunning new sports facilities, Club Cheadle Hulme.

The former local authority run sports centre was acquired by The Laurus Trust – a multi academy trust with Cheadle Hulme High School at its heart – and now offers fully modernised sports facilities to its pupils and to the local community during evenings and weekends.

The £1 million renovation includes a state of the art multi-gym, the upgrading of the main sports hall with a sprung floor, new lighting, air temperature controls and a climbing wall. The changing rooms, complete with showers and lockers, have also been refurbished.

The transformation was made possible through the generous support of the Law Family Educational Trust (LFET) and the Law Family Charitable Foundation (LFCF).

A very warm welcome to our website. We hope that reading these pages will help you to gain an insight into the essence and heart of our school.

We place great importance on our core purpose of teaching and learning and on supporting our students in developing the ‘KASH’ – Knowledge, Attitudes, Skills and Habits – which will enable them to flourish and succeed. This ethos was recognised in our Ofsted inspection in December 2014:

The headteacher, senior leaders, middle leaders and governing body work with passion and a shared vision and determination for all students at the school to excel at all levels. There is an established and embedded ethos throughout the school of high expectations and aspirations for all. The headteacher is relentless in her drive for even higher standards and continuously challenges both staff and students to do their very best.”

We work hard to ensure that every member of our school community has access to a rich and diverse range of opportunities. For our students, this is provided through our Cornerstones programme which comprises Academic Aspiration , Leadership and Service , Culture and Creativity and Competition and Physical Endeavour . We believe that these four Cornerstones underpin an educational experience which will prepare students for life beyond school and deliver our vision which is

"…for every student, regardless of background or circumstance, to achieve the grades and develop the qualities which will open the door to the future of their choice"

We value individuality, celebrate diversity and encourage our students to have the confidence to think for themselves, whilst emphasising the importance of tolerance, teamwork and collective responsibility. We place great importance on both leadership and participation and will encourage students from all backgrounds to take on roles of responsibility and engage in School and House activities.

By the time they leave us we want each student to have that true sense of self- worth which will enable them to stand up for what is right and what they believe in and, in doing so, to be of value to society.
Alongside our high aspirations for academic success we passionately believe in the importance of education in its broadest sense and we will ensure the fullest possible participation in such activities as Art, Music, Drama and the development of oracy and literacy. We will ensure that students from all backgrounds are able to discover new talents and interests and develop existing ones.
We strongly believe that physical activity and competition, both intra and inter school, are vital to the holistic development of young people, fostering their physical, social and emotional health.

We believe that the benefits of physical activity and sport reach way beyond their impact on physical wellbeing and are evident in other aspects of education and welfare.

All students will be expected to embrace the notion of ‘mens sana in corpore sano’ ‘Healthy Body Healthy Mind’
