I was delighted to welcome Conservative Party Chairman Brandon Lewis to Cheadle recently, where we took the chance to get a sneak peek at the ongoing works to build a new primary and secondary school, which will be run by the Laurus Trust. We were shown the site by Linda Magrath, CEO of the Laurus Trust, and Gill Theobold, Head of School designate for Laurus Cheadle Hulme.
Overlooking Bruntwood Park, construction began in December 2017, and both schools, along with a 26 place nursery, are set to open in September this year with some construction work continuing into early 2019. When full, Cheadle Hulme Primary School will have 420 pupils, and Laurus Cheadle Hulme will have 1,050 secondary school pupils.
Gill said: “We are thrilled to share the progress of the new Laurus Schools in Cheadle Hulme with Mary Robinson and Brandon Lewis. We are so lucky to have a fabulous view over Bruntwood Park for our students.”
Brandon said: “It was great to see these new schools which are being built in Cheadle and meet the fantastic, dedicated staff who will be working here. It’s a real credit to everyone who has been involved and I wish them all the best for the future.”
As MP for Cheadle I will do everything I can to promote top quality education for children in our area. I was delighted to be able to visit the building site of what are set to be two great new schools, and I look forward to seeing both thrive once they open their doors.
