On 1st January 2013 Chorlton High School converted to a Cooperative Academy.

In March 2015 our Academy Trust changed its status to a Cooperative Multi-Academy Trust (MAT). This means that other schools can join our Co-operative Trust if they share our drive and ethos; it also allows Chorlton High School to be a sponsor school for other schools that may require support. Chorlton High School has not changed its name but it has become the lead school within the ‘CHS Learning Trust’.
