Be involved in the future of Chorlton High School

In 2013 Chorlton High School became a Co-operative Academy.

The Governor's chose to adopt this status to show their commitment to developing our school as an outstanding school for the local Chorlton community that provides the very best educational opportunities for the students in our care irrespective of their ability or background.

We would now like you to become a member of the Chorlton High School Co-operative Academy Trust and have a say in how the school is run and how it develops in the future.

You are eligible to become a member if you are a current student, a parent or carer of a current student, a member of staff or a member of the local community.

Why become a member?

By becoming a member you will show your commitment to developing Chorlton High School as an outstanding school for the community of Chorlton.

You will be invited to various events throughout the year, including the Annual General Meeting.  You will be eligible to stand for election onto the Board of Governors, providing an increased opportunity to directly influence the future of Chorlton High School. However if you don’t have the time to get more involved – that’s fine too. We would still like you to show your support and become a member of our Trust.

You will also be added to our Co-operative Member mailing list and will receive our termly Co-operative Newsletter.
