Cheadle Hulme Primary School - Stop Press!!

March 9th

We are delighted that the Secretary of State for Education has decided that our application to establish Cheadle Hulme Primary School should proceed to the next stage of the free schools process. The application has been approved to enter the 'pre opening' stage. This is a significant step towards opening our school and means that we can now start to develop our plans to ensure that we are in a position to open successfully and bring our vision to life.

Thank you to everyone who has supported us so far - we will keep you updated on our progress and provide further details as they become available.

We are delighted to announce that our Ofsted inspection in December 2014 has once again resulted
in an overall judgement of Outstanding and that our new Sixth Form has also been graded Outstanding!

Overall Effectiveness Outstanding
Leadership and Management Outstanding
Behaviour and Safety of Pupils Outstanding
Quality of Teaching Outstanding

Science Fair

Cheadle Hulme High School hosted their first Science Fair this spring, with students from Years 7, 8 and 9 producing projects and experiments about scientific ideas that interest them; from the coke and mentos experiment to learning how much sugar is in a bag of skittles!

Science teacher, Miss Murray, says: "The main school hall was packed with both teachers and students learning about these projects and ideas, and witnessing exciting demonstrations. At the end of the event, Mr Brown and Mrs Goodeve awarded prizes to the top three projects. It was a brilliant event, full of scientific explanation and understanding. Well done to all who participated!"

World Book Day at CHHS

Staff got into the spirit of World Book Day this spring, dressing up as characters from different genres of English Literature, including gothic novels and the classics by authors such as Dickens, Tolkien and the Bronte sisters. Humanities dressed up as characters from The Lord of the Rings, Performing Arts were The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (with two staff each being a door of the wardrobe!) and the Cover Manager came as Miss Havisham, complete with cobwebs and spiders! Classes were taught in full costume and students had lots of fun guessing who was who.
French students visit CHHS

CHHS welcomed students from College St Andre recently, a school on the outskirts of Paris. The 13-15 year olds enjoyed practicing their English with our Year 8 students, who also had a chance to brush up their French. The students played games and challenged each other to ping pong in the school play ground. In the afternoon, Mr Helsby (Maths) organised two maths games - Sprouts and Squares - and Year 7 students helped to explain the rules. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day, with lots of shared esprit de corps.
At the beginning of the year, 30 lucky Geography students travelled to Iceland where they visited a geothermal spa, saw glaciers and waterfalls, walked the Mid Atlantic Ridge and watched a geyser erupting.

Geography trip to Iceland

Students had a fantastic time learning all about the country and tasting traditional food like 'bolludagurs', a cream bun served just once a year. They were also driven through snow storms by fearless Icelandic coach drivers.

Humanities teacher, Miss Blackledge, says: "The students behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school and hopefully now have a bit of the Icelandic belief in trolls and elves!"

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’
