About Didsbury High School

Didsbury High School is a new secondary free school for 11-18 students in South Manchester. The school will be run by the Laurus Trust and replicate the outstanding education already provided by the trust’s founder school, Cheadle Hulme High School (CHHS).  CHHS, based in Stockport, 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 Free School.  It will open in September 2019, initially providing 210 Year 7 places in seven forms with 30 students in each.      

A further 210 Year 7 students will be added each academic year.  In addition we will open a sixth form, soon after, for 300 students.  We have liaised with the Education team at Manchester City Council on our proposal and the school will provide much needed additional secondary places for children in Manchester.     

Our students will 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 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.
