Admissions

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all prospective pupils of Cheadle Hulme Primary School and their parents/carers. I am sorry that we are unable to physically welcome you into school this year, but I do hope the video and other information here is helpful to you.
 
If you do choose us, I promise that we will work as hard as we can, in partnership with you, to attain the very highest standards of education and welfare for your child. If we can be of any further help, or to book onto one of our virtual Q&A sessions, please do not hesitate to contact us on enquiries@cheadlehulmeprimary.org.uk.
