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 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.’
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!"
The Laurus Trust, with support from the Education Funding Agency (EFA), is proposing to open two new schools within Cheadle Hulme, at land to the south of Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College.
We are keen to understand the local community’s views on our initial proposals, and would like to invite you to a drop-in event at Cheadle and Marple College.

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"
