The Laurus Trust
Gorsey Bank converted to academy status and became a proud member of the Laurus Trust in October 2016 .
Originally founded by Cheadle Hulme High School, the Laurus Trust now comprises four new free schools – Cheadle Hulme Primary School, Laurus Cheadle Hulme, Laurus Ryecroft and Didsbury High School. Hazel Grove High School joined the Trust in September 2019. We also offer school-centred teacher training through the Altius Alliance which was judged Outstanding by Ofsted in 2017.
“For everyone, regardless of background or circumstance, to be inspired, to thrive in all environments, to recognise what it takes to succeed, to set aspirational goals and to work hard to achieve them.”
As well as being unashamedly academic, Laurus schools focus on developing each pupil’s self-confidence and voice skills. We inspire our pupils to broaden their horizons and to believe that ‘anything is possible’ because we understand that this is the key to post-education success.
