About Didsbury High School

Didsbury High School is a new secondary free school for 11-18 students in South Manchester. The school is run by the Laurus Trust and replicates the outstanding education already provided by the Trust’s founder school, Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS), based in Stockport. CHHS is a hugely oversubscribed school and was recently named in the Sunday Times ‘Parent Power’ Top 25 comprehensive schools in the country.

Didsbury High School is a non-selective, non-denominational school. It opened in September 2019, initially providing 210 Year 7 places in eight forms. Each year 210 Year 7 students are added until the school is at full capacity. In addition, we will open a sixth form, for 300 students. DHS is the most oversubscribed first preference school in Manchester.

Our students have access to state-of-the-art facilities in a brand new building behind Didsbury Point. Didsbury is a suburban area of Manchester, 4.5 miles south of Manchester City Centre. The location enjoys the advantages of proximity to the open countryside of Cheshire and the Peak District, strong transport links and the cultural and sporting activities of a major city.

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.
