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 pupils have attended our school with help from the Bursary Fund. This has benefited not only the pupils but our entire community, reinforcing our belief that providing financial assistance enriches our school, improves academic standards and widens educational opportunity.

Our Governing Body decides who to award assistance to and support is only available to pupils joining the Senior School and Sixth Form. We take into account  academic performance and will make awards to pupils 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 our 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 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 pupil’s progress, attitude or behaviour has been unsatisfactory.
