From its mid-nineteenth century foundation to the present day, Cheadle Hulme school has maintained a tradition of co-education, educational innovation and a strong emphasis on community.

Life at CHS is under-pinned by a very clear set of values, that focus on not just external exam success, but an innate interest and passion for learning beyond the classroom and a forward-thinking approach to educational innovation. Their aim is to ensure that each member of the school community is able to fulfil their potential and to flourish in the wider world.
