Financial Assistance & Scholarships

Financial Assistance

We have a long tradition of providing financial assistance to talented young people, offering them the opportunity of a high-quality education. Over the years, many students have attended our School with help from the School’s Bursary Fund. This has benefited not only the students, but also the whole School community, reinforcing our belief that providing financial assistance enriches the School, improves academic standards, and widens educational opportunity for students from a wide range of social backgrounds.

Our governing body decides who to award assistance to.  Bursaries are only available to students joining the Senior School and Sixth Form. We take into account the student’s academic performance and will make awards to students who we consider will gain the most from receiving their education at Cheadle Hulme School, who are likely to make good progress in their studies and who have the potential to develop and benefit from taking part in the wider, co-curricular activities on offer at the School.

Financial assistance ranges from 10% to 100% of the annual fee.  If you are offered a 100% financial assistance award, extra assistance may also be available to help with the cost of uniform, iPads and school trips.

We consider the level of support each year, so you must fill in the application form every year to allow us to review and reassess your circumstances. We may increase or reduce the amount of assistance you receive depending on any changes in your household’s circumstances. The governors can also reduce or withdraw assistance if a student’s progress, attitude or behaviour has been unsatisfactory.

If you would like further information please contact our Financial Controller, Natalie Atkinson, 0161 488 3340,

The application form and guidance notes are available below.



Cheadle Hulme School offers a small number of Scholarships each year in recognition of outstanding performance or potential in a given area. Scholarships are non-means tested and offer a discount of up to 25% of the annual School fees. All awards are made at the discretion of the Governing Body.

A small number of Academic Scholarships may be awarded for exceptional performance in the Entrance Examination. An Academic Scholarship is held for the student’s first five years in the Senior School, subject to an annual progress review. You do not need to apply for an Academic Scholarship and they are not subject to a means test.

A Music Scholarship is awarded to a pupil who demonstrates outstanding potential in one or more musical instruments/voice.

A Sports Scholarship is awarded to a pupil who demonstrates outstanding sporting potential in a major sport in which the School competes. Students will demonstrate excellent athletic ability and commitment to their sport. Ability in the major team games Netball, Football, Hockey, Rugby and Cricket would be advantageous, but other sports offered at the School including Athletics, Cross-Country, Swimming, Badminton and Tennis will also be considered.
