Our Vision and Values

"The Laurus Trust’s vision is for everyone regardless of background or circumstance to be inspired, to thrive in all environments, to recognise what it takes to succeed, to set aspirational goals and work hard to achieve them."


The Laurus Trust is a newly formed Trust with Cheadle Hulme High School, the founder school, at its centre.

CHHS is a hugely oversubscribed academy converter with a reputation locally, and further afield, for outstanding teaching and learning through the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds. It is a Teaching School and has been judged Outstanding in every category by Ofsted in 2011 and 2015. The 2015 results for CHHS put us in the top 2% of schools nationally in terms of value added and the top five non-selective schools in the North West region.

On 1st October 2016, Gorsey Bank Primary School, based in Wilmslow, joined the Trust.

The Trust currently has two Free Schools in the pre-opening phase – Cheadle Hulme Primary School (CHPS) and a second High School, Laurus Cheadle Hulme.
