At The Cheadle College we take the personal development and wellbeing of all our students very seriously and we are here to support them throughout the duration of their studies.
This ranges from their personal safety and security whilst on campus, broadening their horizons through field-trips, work placements and other extra-curricular activities, and ensuring we are meeting their personal and academic needs through to high quality careers and training advice.
We also have a Wellbeing team which includes learning mentors who can give advice and guidance on any personal issues including housing; finance and funding; welfare; childcare; general and sexual health; low mood and anxiety; and mental health. In addition, the team works closely with Services For Young People and a trained guidance officer is available to provide further progression and support.
Ofsted also recognises our commitment to student care, and we are proud to be the first Sixth Form College in England to receive the prestigious Training and Quality Standards Award. We also have been awarded the Matrix Quality Standard for outstanding student guidance.
Other specialist provision includes access to Learning Mentors, Counselling Services and a dedicated team of qualified Learning Support teachers and assistants.
We understand that the step up from school can be daunting as well as exciting and every student who joins us follows an intensive induction programme at the start of their first term.
Staying In Touch With Parents
We work closely with parents and carers to make sure our students get the most out of their time with us. We keep in contact via regular progress reports, updates by email and publish all of our latest news online. We further host regular meetings and events, where parents and carers can discuss any issues face-to-face with both teaching and support staff.

Health and Safety
The Cheadle College is committed to creating and maintaining a safe and welcoming environment for our students. Personal Safety is important when you take part in any learning.
At the moment, the issue of terrorism is regularly in the news but the College has worked with key stakeholders for some time in order to ensure that our students and staff are safe within College. We take the protection of our staff and students very seriously and work closely with the Police, and other external Government agencies. Follow the link below to access the NaCTSO ”Stay Safe” film.
