Cheadle Hulme High School is now an accredited provider of Initial Teacher Training.
With effect from 30th July 2014, operating under the name of Atticus Alliance School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT), CHHS will be able to award Qualified Teacher Status. The school will, however, continue to work in partnership with a Higher Education Institute to award a Post Graduate Certificate in Education (PGCE).
From November 2014 CHHS will seek to recruit graduates who are interested in a career in teaching.
Cheadle Hulme High School has a long history of successfully training teachers. In 2000 we were awarded Training School Status and in 2012, due to our outstanding Ofsted we were awarded Teaching School Status.
Since 2012 CHHS has worked with School Direct which has seen the transition from University to School Led training. CHHS ensures that all its Associate Teachers have a full understanding of issues faced by young people today and include an Accredited Mental Health Course as part of their training. Our philosophy is that we are teachers of young people first and foremost and our passion for subject knowledge adds to this solid foundation.
CHHS leads the Atticus Alliance, a group of 21 schools and educational establishments which provide a variety of contexts within which to train.

It has been another successful year for students at Cheadle Hulme High School. Despite some reported ‘variability’ in GCSE examinations this year students should be very proud of their successes.
Our results saw 77% of students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths, with 28% of GCSE entries graded at an A*/A grade. This once again puts Cheadle Hulme High School as the top performing state school in Stockport for both the % of students achieving 5 or more A*-C including English and Maths (LA average 60.4%) & students achieving 5 or more A*-C. Particular congratulations go to the 98 (41% of) students who achieved 3 or more A*/A grades, 73 (31%) achieving 5 or more A*/A grades and 10 of whom achieving 10 A*/A grades!
We look forward to seeing many of you in our Sixth Form as you continue with your studies. The new term starts on Monday 8th September please do not hesitate to be in touch should you have any questions.
We are delighted to be able to celebrate the results of our Year 12 students who scored some spectacular successes!
Nationally, the percentage of students achieving grades at B or higher in at least three traditional academic subjects (The Russell Group 'Facilitating Subjects') at A2 is 15.30% for all schools and colleges, and 12.10% in the state funded sector. CHHS Sixth Form achieved 19% on this measure in AS examinations this year. One third of all students gained at least three B grades or better, and 15% achieved at least two A grades, with 50% of these students gaining a clean sweep of A grades (A being the highest grade achievable at AS).
Congratulations to all Y12 students and their teachers for making the new Sixth Form such a success in its first year. Students will now move on to Y13 and move forward their University/Oxbridge and Higher Apprenticeship applications. We also look forward to welcoming our new Y12 cohort of students on 8 September, who will be accommodated in the brand new Sixth Form Building.
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.
