Welcome to Didsbury High School

We are a new 11-18 secondary school which opened in September 2019. 

Unashamedly academic

For state students it hasn’t always been a level playing field, until now. We are unashamedly academic with a reputation for the relentless pursuit of excellence and a determination to ensure that every child succeeds.

Officially Outstanding Teacher Training

We are proud to announce that the Altius Alliance teacher training provider, based at Cheadle Hulme High School, is officially Ofsted Outstanding!

School is currently closed to the majority of students. Parents, carers and students, please check emails from school and for information and help with online learning please visit our Learning at Home page.

We are very excited to welcome you to Didsbury High School, a new secondary school which opened in September 2019, and which is 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.

Please follow this link to find out how to apply for a place.
