Starting Pre-School

Welcome to Cheadle Hulme Pre-School.

We understand that starting Pre-School or moving settings is a significant moment for any child. We will do everything we can to ensure your child settles in smoothly to Cheadle Hulme Pre-School.

We take our responsibility for your child’s personal and academic development seriously. We value strong home-school links and recognise the positive difference they make to a child’s happiness and success.

Before starting with us, we will be holding a number of induction events for you and your child. Until then, we hope you find the information provided on our website useful and encourage you to have a look at our Twitter account to get a flavour of life at Cheadle Hulme Primary School.

If we can be of any further help please do not hesitate to contact us on [email protected].

Please note that a limited number of places are still available for September 2023 – please get in touch to find out more.

– Mr Ryan Thompson, Head of School
