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.
We also believe that parents and carers are vital to the success of our students – both from an academic and personal development perspective – and we seek to build a positive three-way partnership between parent, student and college.
We do this through keeping in contact with parents and carers via regular progress reports, updates by email and we 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.
You can find out more about our approach to student care, wellbeing and guidance by clicking on the Student Support section of this website. We have also created a detailed parents’ guide containing lots of practical information about college life which you can view online or download from here.

We also warmly welcome enquiries from any current or prospective parents or carers regarding any aspect of The Cheadle College and you can contact us by phone, email or via the enquiry form on the website. Alternatively you can come and meet staff and students face to face at one of our open days or evenings.
The Cheadle and Marple College Network consider complaints as an opportunity to receive valuable feedback. A complaint enables The C&M College Network to reflect, analyse and improve our service. We aim to ensure that all complaints are treated seriously and followed up in a sensitive manner.
