Working at Cheadle Hulme School
"Strongly supported by excellent governance and inspirational leadership, pupils gain intellectual confidence, develop their academic potential and enjoy considerable success." - ISI Inspection, April 2017
Cheadle Hulme School is a wonderful place to work.
Our staff community is wide-ranging, with a diverse mix of colleagues working across many different areas of our school. Everyone is encouraged to immerse themselves in School life; there are numerous concerts, productions, exhibitions and events throughout the year, giving us chance to socialise.
We are lucky to work on such a beautiful site. Our school stands on extensive grounds in a Green Belt and its campus is maintained to a high standard. Students are enthusiastic, well-mannered and motivated, with supportive parents. Staff are friendly and work very much as a team. The extensive range of co-curricular activities offer opportunities to develop numerous interests.

Cheadle Hulme School is part of an alliance of schools. This partnership includes Altrincham College of Arts, Gorsey Bank Primary School, Hursthead Junior School, The Kingsway School, Moat House, Priestnall School and Marple Hall School, along with Manchester Metropolitan University.
The ‘Altius Teaching Alliance’ is led by Cheadle Hulme High School, which is a Teaching School. We hope that this will lead to greater interaction and cooperation, especially in the areas of Initial Teacher Training and Continuous Professional Development of our staff.
