Our Amazing Campaign
"Central to our ethos is a vibrant and diverse community of pupils for whom financial circumstances do not stand in the way of ability and potential". Through our Amazing Campaign we aim to transform the lives of as many people as possible and enrich the experience of every pupil at CHS in the process.
Diversity in schools enables pupils to learn more about their communities and develop a fuller understanding of the world in which we live.
At CHS we believe it is important that our pupils do not grow up in a bubble; interact with pupils from a range of ethnic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds. As a School we have always relied on donations to support our vision for social inclusion by widening educational opportunity.
With your support we can further enrich our School community and open up opportunities to young people, regardless of their parents income for the benefit of everyone.
Where possible we will aim to fund three Transformational Bursaries to deserving young people. Some of these young people will come from deprived or challenging backgrounds or may live in areas of Greater Manchester where life chances are more limited than other parts of the region.
Support our Amazing Campaign and open up more opportunities for deserving families to be part of the CHS community.
Mehar, current STEM Bursary student
“My bursary has opened many doors for me. With this opportunity I have been able to develop skills through Pathways lessons which will hopefully help me in my future engineering career; this may not have been possible at any other school. The extra support and focus on STEM has allowed me to take part in national competitions such as F1 in schools, which will enable greater career options in years to come. I'm so grateful to the person who has funded my place at CHS.”
Belinda Walmsley, Class of 1999
“I have absolutely no doubt that the day I received my bursary at Cheadle Hulme School my life changed dramatically and that my time there made me the person I have become. I grew up on a Council Estate in Withington. My situation at home was such that I received not only my full fees but also financial assistance towards my uniform, school lunches and bus fares. Had even one of those things been missing it would have been impossible to continue. Testimony to the CHS community, I was never made to feel like the poor Bursary school girl, and the generosity of my friends and their parents meant I experienced so many wonderful things. I will always be grateful.”
Maisha, current student
“Being offered a place at CHS was a truly life changing moment and I never take this opportunity for granted. I hope to go on to study medicine at University and to one day give back to the institution which has given so much to me and my family. I will be forever grateful to the parents and Old Waconians who have donated to the Bursary Fund and made it possible for me to attend CHS. For me, CHS will always feel like my home.”
