Cheadle Hulme High School's 2016 examination results have seen us
shoot up the ranks in the Times Parent Power survey.
The annual survey ranks schools by attainment of students at grades A* - B at 'A' level and A*/A at GCSE.
The A level grades are double weighted.
In the list of top secondary state schools, CHHS holds 25th position nationally for comprehensive schools.
This is a fantastic achievement for students and staff and particularly for the Sixth Form,
celebrating only its second set of A level results.

CHHS in Top 5% UK-wide in Progress 8 Results
The new school performance measure 'Progress 8' has shown the outstanding comprehensive
Cheadle Hulme High School in Stockport to be one of the highest performing schools in the country.
Progress 8 is a new secondary accountability measure aimed at measuring the progress of pupils across a selected set of 8 subjects. For a further explanation please see the following video from the Department for Education.
Progress 8 is based on students’ progress measured across eight subjects: English; mathematics; three other English Baccalaureate (EBacc) subjects (sciences, computer science, geography, history and languages); and three further subjects, which can be from the range of EBacc subjects, or can be any other approved, high-value arts, academic, or vocational qualification.
The official performance tables place Cheadle Hulme High School in the top 5% nationally.
This is the highest rating in Stockport and also shows Cheadle Hulme High School outperforming
many schools throughout the region. Looking at Progress 8 across Greater Manchester the
comprehensive Cheadle Hulme High School outperforms all of the grammar schools in Trafford.
Linda Magrath, headteacher at Cheadle Hulme High School, says ‘I am immensely proud of the
progress all our students make. Our aim is to ensure our students go on to a future of their
choosing. This new performance measure fully recognises their achievements and the hard work
of all the staff here at Cheadle Hulme High School.’
Sixth formers from Cheadle Hulme High School came home triumphant this week after winning the regional BASE (Business, Accounting, Skills, Enterprise) competition.
L to R - Tom Ireland, Millad Shadpour, Jacob Farrell, Caitlin Anderson, Robert Goodfellow and Tom Rayner.
The students faced 28 other schools from around the UK, including teams from some of the North West’s leading independent and grammar schools, who also took part in the business challenge.
It was a day of intense concentration as teams raced to present their solutions and strategies to a panel of judges in front of other schools, followed by an in-depth Q&A session from industry experts. They now have the opportunity to compete at the International Final against other regional winners in June next year.
BASE competition was created to provide school and college students with a taste of what it’s really like to work as an ICAEW Chartered Accountant. Since its launch as a UK-wide event in 2009, more than 13,000 students have tested their business skills and competed for the prestigious title of BASE National Champions.
Ben Davidson, Head of Business Education, at the school, rated Outstanding by Ofsted in its last inspection in 2015, was delighted with the result saying:
“The team was a credit to CHHS and worked extremely hard throughout the day. This was a daunting prospect for them given the competition and they were all a little apprehensive, but their hard work paid off and they were thrilled to bring home the trophy.
"The judges all commented on how professional their approach was and their confidence in presenting to an audience. They should all be really proud on a job well done!"
Team Captain, Millad Shadpour, said: "It was such a good experience - we were really surprised to actually win but it's a great feeling and given us confidence to go forward to the international finals next year."
Ella Baxter, Megan Johnson
In the same week, two more of their students, Ella Baxter and Megan Johnson, also won the final, against Manchester Grammar School, of the French debate in the Northern Schools Modern Foreign Languages Debating Competition held at Cheadle Hulme School, again competing against some of the top schools in the area.
Headteacher Linda Magrath commented: "I am so incredibly proud of all our sixth form students; it's great to offer our young people such a prestigious academic education for free!"
