Heritage Open Day 2018

Women and the War at The Warehousemen and Clerks' Orphan Schools

Sunday 16th September 2018

To mark the centenary of WW1 tour the School's historic buildings and learn about how WW1 affected the School and its community. Plus explore the lives of the women close to the School’s heritage.

Your visit

100 years after the end of WW1 we invite you to reflect on the impact that this war had on the lives of those working and living at Cheadle Hulme School, formerly The Warehousemen and Clerks' Orphan Schools. Our students will take you on a tour of the School's buildings and share stories that will bring history to life.

As part of your day, to mark 100 years since some women were granted the vote, enjoy displays and talks exploring the lives of women who played a significant role in the history of our School.

Finish your visit by indulging in tea and cake in the School's original Dining Hall and viewing materials from its extensive archive.
