Cheadle Hulme High School is a community secondary (11-16) co-educational comprehensive day school, located in Cheadle Hulme, Stockport, Greater Manchester, England.[1] Cheadle Hulme High School is often referred to as CHHS. Since September 1997 it has been a specialist language college and since September 2000 a training school.[2]

History

The school was built due to the increasing population in the Cheadle Hulme area. The Jonathan Robinson School was located on the corner of Woods Lane and Church Road, and the new school was built further up the hill in 1935, on Woods Lane. Prior to its opening, children were taught at what is now Queens Road Primary School, which had opened in 1932, as an overspill. The school on Woods Lane was opened on 28 April 1936 and was named Woods Lane Secondary Modern School.[3] Even today the school commonly (and unofficially) retains the name Woods Lane School. In the 1960s and 1970s there was an extensive building programme, and the school became comprehensive, changing its name to Cheadle Hulme High School in 1974 to reflect its status.

There were discussions in 2006 relating the feasibility of combining the high school with Cheadle and Marple Sixth Form College. These proposals falling through due to financial reasons.

The Ofsted report in September 2011 awarded CHHS with "1" - Outstanding - in every single criteria. http://www.ofsted.gov.uk/filedownloading/?id=1832247&type=1&refer=0 [4]

Language College

In September 1997 the school became a Language College, a status which is unique to it in the borough, and allowing it to assume the name of Cheadle Hulme College. All students study one language to certification level and a substantial percentage study two. The mainstream languages are French, German, Spanish and Italian. French and German lessons are also taught in the nine feeder primary schools. Many events, such as a Christmas Market held each year, are part of the Language College status. In 2005 it reverted back to Cheadle Hulme High School to avoid confusion with the local sixth form college.

Training School

In September 2000 the school became one of the first in the country to become a training school for Initial Teacher Training and Continuing Professional Development. Training schools are "centres of excellence for training" and "experts in adult learning and the transfer of skills, and provide a venue for high quality professional development".[5]
