Teacher training in South Manchester
Our lead school, Cheadle Hulme, is located in South Manchester. From its mid-nineteenth century foundation to the present day, the school has maintained a tradition of co-education, educational innovation and a strong emphasis on community. Life at CHS is underpinned by a clear set of values and an emphasis on not just success in external examinations, but also the importance of developing a desire and capacity to further students’ academic interest outside of the classroom.
