For September 2021 entry into Year 7

The Laurus Trust is the Admissions Authority for Laurus Cheadle Hulme. The co-ordination and administration of student admissions for entry is undertaken by the Local Authority.

Applications are made using the Local Authority form for the area in which you reside. If your child was born between 1st September 2009 and 31st August 2010 you should apply for a secondary school place for the school year beginning September 2021 by 31st October 2020. If you live in Stockport you must apply using the online system. Please click here to access the online admissions form and for information about late applications.

Laurus Cheadle Hulme does not have a catchment area. If a tie-break is required to determine which child gets a place then those living closest to the school will have priority. See the FAQs below for further information.

While Cheadle Hulme High School and Laurus Cheadle Hulme are both part of the Laurus Trust, you must name each school in your list of preferences if you are interested in a place at either school.

As Laurus Cheadle Hulme is a new school, opening one year group at a time, there is currently no availability for mid-year admissions.

Offers will be made in March 2021 by the Local Authority.




What is the difference between a Free School and a Local Authority School?

Free Schools are academies and are funded directly from central government rather than via the Local Authority.

How do I apply?

Applications for a September 2021 Year 7 place should be made using the Local Authority’s online admission form which opened in mid-August 2020. The closing date is 31st October 2020.

How do the admissions criteria work?

The school has 210 Year 7 places. If more than 210 applications are received, priority will be given to children in accordance with the oversubscription criteria which can be found in the Admissions Policy. If a tie-break is necessary to determine which children are admitted then children living nearest to the school will be given priority. Laurus Cheadle Hulme does not have a catchment area.

How far away can I live to get a place?

The map below shows where successful applicants for September 2020 places at Laurus Cheadle Hulme live, as well as a 2km radius around the school. This is purely for indicative purposes only. There is no guarantee that the demand for 2021 places will be the same.  

How will I be told if my application is successful?

You will be informed by email in March 2021 and by letter two to three days later.

What happens if my application is unsuccessful?

All parents have a statutory right of appeal to an Independent Appeal Panel. For more information please see the Admission Policy.

Do you have a waiting list?

Yes, and it will be open to any parent to ask for his or her child’s name to be placed on the waiting list, following an unsuccessful application. Vacant places will be allocated to children on the waiting list in accordance with the oversubscription criteria in the Admissions Policy.
