CHS celebrates Inspection success

Cheadle Hulme School is proud to announce a positive inspection report from the Independent Schools Inspectorate (ISI), following a three-day visit in March.

The report, published this week, commends the school for its inclusive, values-driven ethos and the diverse and enriching educational experiences it offers to all pupils. Inspectors also praised the broad curriculum, offering breadth and flexibility, and effective teaching that enables pupils to enjoy consistently high grades at GCSE and A level.

In line with ISI’s new framework, the report does not provide an overall grade but instead offers a detailed overview of the school’s performance. However inspectors identified the school’s co-curricular programme as a significant strength, a recognition awarded to only a select number of schools. 

The rigorous inspection process included interviews with pupils and staff, lesson observations, work scrutiny, and questionnaires. Inspectors praised staff for fostering mutual respect, care, tolerance, and kindness, noting that “pupils feel nurtured and develop a strong moral compass.” Additionally, the report recognised the wide range of opportunities available for pupils to take on responsibility and develop leadership skills that positively influence school life.

Acting Head, Mr. Richardson, remarked, this report is a positive recognition of the hard work and dedication of our pupils, staff and governors and I would like to pass on my thanks to them all. Their collective endeavour ensures that CHS continues its long tradition of being a fantastic environment for our young people to learn, achieve, grow and thrive.
