Examination Results 

“The rates of progress made by students in English and mathematics from the time they enter the school in Year 7 and their GCSE examinations in Year 11 are very high, compared to those seen nationally. For example, in the latest results 81% of students made expected progress compared to 70% nationally and 41% made more-than-expected progress compared to 32% nationally in English. In mathematics, the rates of progress were even higher with 80% making expected progress compared to 65% nationally, and 43% making more-than-expected progress compared to 29% nationally…. A large proportion of the most able students reach the highest possible A* and A grades in their GCSE examinations and across many subjects in the school, including English and mathematics. The proportion attaining these grades is higher than that found nationally. For example, in 2013 over twice the national percentage of students attained A* or A in English… AS level results are higher than seen nationally and current progress for those students who continue into Year 13 is high.”

Ofsted December 2014


It has been another fantastic year for students at Cheadle Hulme High School.

Our GCSE results saw 81% of students achieving 5 or more A*-C grades including English and Maths, with 32% of GCSE entries graded at an A*/A grade. 52% of students achieved the Ebacc which is significantly above national results. In English and Mathematics, 92% and 86% of students respectively made expected progress. Particular congratulations go to the 117 (41% of) students who achieved 3 or more A*/A grades, 75 (26%) achieving 5 or more A*/A grades and the 34 who achieved 8 or more A*/A grades! Of the 12 students who took their languages AS-levels in Year 11 7 received the top grade of an A.

Sixth Form

Furthermore, our Ofsted Outstanding Sixth Form has received matching Outstanding results with students achieving an average grade of a B across all their subjects. Over 40% of our students attained 3x A*-B, with an impressive 39% of our A-level grades being A*-A and 70% being A*-B. The value added for AS and A2 results are above national. With over half of students are going to the prestigious Russell Group universities and 60% to the Sutton 30, this is over 5 times the local authority figure (Sutton Trust, 2011). All of these performance measures place us at the top of the tables for Greater Manchester non-grammar state provision*.
