Old Waconians

Cheadle Hulme School fosters relationships with over 13,000 Old Waconians worldwide. Our Alumni Relations programme aims to further the needs of the School by broadening the participation of our former students in the activities of the School and providing opportunities for them to volunteer their skills and expertise to enhance our academic, co-curricular and pastoral programmes. We also promote philanthropic support for the School’s priority projects. CHS is extremely fortunate to have an alumni body that remain so loyal to the School and its long and proud heritage by offering their skills, expertise and philanthropic support.


The term ‘Old Waconian’ stems from the original name given to the School in 1855: The Warehouseman and Clerks’ Orphan Schools. Every former student and member of staff becomes an Old Waconian when they leave Cheadle Hulme School.

With over 13,000 Old Waconians in over 43 countries around the world, the School strives to effectively communicate and engage with all alumni through a variety of communications, events and initiatives.
