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 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.
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.’
LAUNCH OF THE LAURUS TRUST BRINGS STARS AND STUDENTS TOGETHER
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.
Following satisfactory ground investigations at Cheadle College, Education Ministers have approved the funding for the two new free schools in Cheadle Hulme. The Education Funding Agency (EFA) and the Free School Trust (Laurus Trust) are now in the process of procuring a contractor who will be responsible for designing and building the schools including preparing and submitting a planning application.
As set out at the community consultation event on 30 November, a second consultation event will be held in the summer, ahead of submitting the planning application, to provide the local community with details of the preferred scheme and, as with the event in November, seek to obtain your views as to the proposals.
The intention is for the planning application to be submitted in the summer and once submitted, there will be a further opportunity for the public to review the plans and submit representations to Stockport MBC.
A number of students from CHHS were nominated for the annual Stockport Young Star award in December 2016. It was an evening of celebrating the achievements and successes of our children and young adults.
A very well done to all for their nomination and particular Congratulations to Alex Sugden who was the winner of the "Outstanding Achievement Post 16" award
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).

Sixth formers from Cheadle Hulme High School came home triumphant this week after winning the regional BASE (Business, Accounting, Skills, Enterprise) competition.
L to R - Tom Ireland, Millad Shadpour, Jacob Farrell, Caitlin Anderson, Robert Goodfellow and Tom Rayner.
The students faced 28 other schools from around the UK, including teams from some of the North West’s leading independent and grammar schools, who also took part in the business challenge.
It was a day of intense concentration as teams raced to present their solutions and strategies to a panel of judges in front of other schools, followed by an in-depth Q&A session from industry experts. They now have the opportunity to compete at the International Final against other regional winners in June next year.
BASE competition was created to provide school and college students with a taste of what it’s really like to work as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant. Since its launch as a UK-wide event in 2009, more than 13,000 students have tested their business skills and competed for the prestigious title of BASE National Champions.
Ben Davidson, Head of Business Education, at the school, rated Outstanding by Ofsted in its last inspection in 2015, was delighted with the result saying:
“The team was a credit to CHHS and worked extremely hard throughout the day. This was a daunting prospect for them given the competition and they were all a little apprehensive, but their hard work paid off and they were thrilled to bring home the trophy.
"The judges all commented on how professional their approach was and their confidence in presenting to an audience. They should all be really proud on a job well done!"
Team Captain, Millad Shadpour, said: "It was such a good experience - we were really surprised to actually win but it's a great feeling and given us confidence to go forward to the international finals next year."
Ella Baxter, Megan Johnson
In the same week, two more of their students, Ella Baxter and Megan Johnson, also won the final, against Manchester Grammar School, of the French debate in the Northern Schools Modern Foreign Languages Debating Competition held at Cheadle Hulme School, again competing against some of the top schools in the area.
Headteacher Linda Magrath commented: "I am so incredibly proud of all our sixth form students; it's great to offer our young people such a prestigious academic education for free!"

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"
