About Cheadle Hulme High School & Sixth Form

Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS) is a hugely oversubscribed academy converter with a reputation locally, and further afield, for outstanding teaching and learning through the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds. CHHS is a Teaching School and has been judged Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in 2011 and 2015. In the new 2016 Progress 8 Headline measure CHHS came in the top 5% of schools nationally and also ranked as the 25th highest attaining comprehensive school nationwide in the annual Sunday Times Parent Power Survey 2016. This year CHHS is ranked in the top ten most sought after schools in Greater Manchester.  

CHHS became an 11-18 school in September 2013, with approximately 1500 students on roll.  Our dedicated Sixth Form Centre opened in September 2014. We were designated a Teaching School in April 2012. We are the founder school of a newly formed Multi-Academy Trust (MAT) with an outstanding academic record. 

Cheadle Hulme is a pleasant residential suburb of mainly private housing on the south western edge of the Borough of Stockport and about eleven miles south of the centre of Manchester.  The location enjoys the advantages of proximity to the open countryside of Cheshire and the Peak District and the cultural and sporting activities of a major city.

As a Training School for twelve years and a Teaching School for a further four, CHHS is very experienced in Initial Teacher Training and is aware of how capacity for ITT can be increased and enriched in order to produce the best teachers for future generations.   

CHHS leads the Altius Alliance, which has been involved in School Direct since its inception in 2012 and was designated as a school-centred initial teaching training provider (SCITT) for the age range 11-16 from September 2015. We have already awarded QTS to our first cohort, all of whom secured full time employment and we are currently providing training to 26 Associate Teachers in the EBacc subjects and 13 School Direct Associate Teachers in other curriculum areas.  Our intention is to further grow our provision over the next 5 years with the ultimate aim of recruiting and training the majority of the Laurus Trust’s teachers within our own SCITT thus ensuring the very highest calibre of teachers with the very best training.  

In addition to our work with Initial Teacher Training we also provide high quality support for a number of schools in the North West. The Teaching School currently has 49 Specialist Leaders of Education who support colleagues in other schools and deliver Continuing Professional Development & Pedagogy to our Associate Teachers.  

Our aim is to ensure that all of our teachers are research literate and as such we offer an in-house masters degree in education which is subsidised through the Trust.

If you want to work in a highly ambitious and successful school and believe you have the vision and commitment to join our team, then we would like to hear from you.   

The school is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff to share this commitment.
