So what can you expect from Laurus Cheadle Hulme?
Opening in a brand-new building offered us the chance to work with architects to plan exactly the right learning environment to provide a curriculum that delivers our vision:
‘Every student, regardless of background or circumstance, to achieve the grades and develop the qualities which will open the door to the future of their choice.’
Laurus Cheadle Hulme will provide an excellent and rounded education for all of its students, regardless of their individual backgrounds, preparing them well for their future careers.
Our curriculum will ensure that every student recognises what it takes to succeed, sets aspirational goals and works hard to achieve them with the support of a highly qualified and dedicated team of education professionals. It will be shaped by the students as it responds to their individual needs and underpinned by the Cornerstones of the Laurus Trust: Academic Aspiration, Leadership and Service, Competition and Physical Endeavour and Culture, Creativity and Rhetoric.
We operate a one week, 28 lesson, timetable cycle. All lessons are 1 hour duration.
Students will also attend a minimum of 2 hours of electives each week.
Upon entry into Year 7, students are placed into one of 8 Tutor Groups. All subjects will be taught in these mixed ability Tutor Groups for the first two terms. After this, Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) and English may rearrange groups into ability sets, based on attainment. This will be informed by internal assessments and National Curriculum tests.
Arrangements for Year 8 and 9 may change as each student progresses through the Key Stage.
