"The aim of education should be to convert the mind into living fountain, and not a reservoir." — John Mason
This is certainly the ambition for the provision of Creative Design in the Laurus Trust where staff development is highly valued and we ensure a structured professional learning approach.
Laurus Ryecroft is a secondary free school opening in Tameside for 150 Year 7 students, growing year on year to full capacity of 1050 students and 300 sixth form students. The school will replicate the outstanding provision offered by the Laurus Trust founding school Cheadle Hulme High School.
CHHS is the founder school of the Laurus Trust, a new multi-academy trust in the North-West of England. The vision of the Trust is for everyone regardless of background or circumstance to be inspired. CHHS is a hugely oversubscribed school with a reputation locally, and further afield for outstanding teaching and learning through the relentless pursuit of excellence and determination to ensure that every child succeeds.
In the list of secondary state schools, CHHS is in the top 20 non-denominational comprehensive schools nationally. This is a fantastic achievement for students and staff and particularly for the Sixth Form, celebrating only its third set of A level results. Maths is the most popular A level in the school with over half the sixth form doing level 3 mathematics and two further maths classes.
We were judged Outstanding in every single category by Ofsted in 2011 and 2015. The 2017 results for CHHS put us in the top 3% of schools nationally (based on the 'Progress 8' performance measure), which is the highest rating in Stockport and shows CHHS outperforming many schools throughout the Greater Manchester region.
A training school for thirteen years and a Teaching School for a further five, CHHS is home to the Altius Alliance centre of excellence providing School Centred Initial Teacher Training (SCITT) for teachers of students aged 11-16, judged Outstanding in 2017.
If you relish in the opportunity to join us at an exciting time for learning and development as we expand and open new schools in the Trust and have the passion, commitment, drive, and determination to work with a highly ambitious and successful Trust, then we would like to hear from you.
