Senior School Admissions

Cheadle Hulme School welcomes applicants from all backgrounds. Entry to the school is on a competitive basis: admission is subject to the availability of a place and to the candidate meeting the entry requirements at the time. The Head’s decision in accepting or refusing a candidate is final. In order to ensure fairness and to protect the integrity of the system, results of assessments including the Entrance Examinations and the interview are not discussed with parents or made public.

Cheadle Hulme School is an academically selective school and, as such, sets it’s own Entrance Examination. Applicants for entry into Year 7 are examined in Mathematics, English and Verbal Reasoning.

Copies of previous papers are not available although specimen questions and further information about the papers can be found below.

Applicants who do well enough in the initial written examination will be invited to attend for interview. Not all those interviewed, however, will be offered a place. At the interview stage we are looking for potential, a wide range of interests and personal values very much aligned with our own.

A School Report is requested from the Head of the applicant’s current school. The Head’s recommendation and comments about the character and work ethic of the individual are an important part of our selection process too.



Application for the Senior School

The online Application Form will be available from September 2020. Further details for the arrangements for the Examination Day will be sent after receipt of the completed Application Form.
