We are very excited to welcome you to Didsbury High School, a brand new secondary school opening in September 2019, and a member of the Laurus Trust family.

Our sister school, Cheadle Hulme High School, is an outstanding and hugely oversubscribed academy with a reputation for the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds. Didsbury High School will embed the same vision and values through our partnership and aim to deliver the same outstanding education.

This is a unique opportunity for your child to be one of the first cohorts to secure a place at Didsbury High School, with the prospect of going on to study at the school’s Sixth Form.

Our website is designed to give you a taste of what is coming and to keep you up-to-date on our progress as we prepare for our doors to open in September 2019.
