A group of Year 12 students visited London for the day, led by Mrs Cheshire, Mr Scott and the new Head of Business, Economics and Law: Ms K Clement-Smith.
The students took part in a Public Spending Challenge at The Treasury and then visited 10 Downing Street, where they were privileged to be able to visit the Cabinet Room and take their seats at the most important table in the United Kingdom; a very rare occurrence! The party were accompanied for the day by Mr Carl Meweezen MBE, Executive Director of the Corporate/Efficiency Reform Group at the Cabinet Office and a former student of Cheadle Hulme High School.
Chefs from BMI The Alexandra Hospital in Cheadle visited Cheadle Hulme High School to teach students how to cook healthy food as part of the hospital’s Big Health Pledge initiative.
Former Cheadle Hulme High School student and Head Chef, Rob Harris, and Sous Chef, Neil Goulding, taught a class of Year 10 GCSE Food Technology students how to prepare and cook a healthy recipe from the BMI Big Health Pledge cook book, being sold to raise money for Cancer Research UK.
The cook book is part of the Big Health Pledge, a national campaign that calls on people to make small changes to improve their health and wellbeing, and features delicious and healthy recipes invented by chefs from across BMI Healthcare.
Students from the school cooked pan seared Sea Bream with crushed new potatoes, roasted butternut squash and spicy tomato sauce and got expert advice on how to prepare the dish from the classically trained chefs.
Maths Hub Accreditation for Cheadle Hulme High School
JULY 1, 2014
Cheadle Hulme High School, lead school for the Atticus Alliance, has become one of only three schools to be accredited as a Maths Hub for the North West.
The hub, one of only thirty two in the country, has been tasked with providing strategic local leadership to ensure all schools in the region receive the tailored maths education support they need. The National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Maths (NCETM) and Department for Education recognised Cheadle Hulme High School for the outstanding results of its outstanding mathematics department as well as its support work with improving the quality of teaching and learning in other schools. The Teaching School, part of the Atticus Alliance runs continuing professional development course and leadership, to improve teaching quality.
David Woolley, the strategic lead for the hub, commented that ‘Maths Hub accreditation is a just recognition for all the hard work in the field of mathematics at Cheadle Hulme High School but also for all the schools involved in the bid. We plan to work as broadly and collaboratively as possible to ensure the very best mathematics education is available to all.’
House teams took part in this year's sunny Sports Day, with track events taking place on the school sports field. Members of staff took part in a House relay, with Citius taking the crown. Photo (L-R) shows Mr Park, Mrs Valentine, Mrs Lambert and Mr Whittle enjoying their victory!
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. We strive to operate a 'CAN DO' culture where people are able to pursue ideas and take risks - they are developed and supported. This ethos was recognised in our Ofsted inspection in September 2011:
"Students espouse this aspirational and 'can do, will do' culture..... Alongside this formidable aspirational ethos is a culture of mutual respect and value in the fundamental benefits and joys of learning."
We pride ourselves on the good relationships that exist at all levels and which are based on trust, openness, teamwork and respect. There is a 'buzz' and enthusiasm about the place. People are curious and keen to try out new ideas. There is a strong sense of optimism and pride in the school's successes and in our capacity to develop and improve. We have high expectations and a strong sense of achievement.
