3 min read

We’re delighted to announce our partnership with the prestigious Cheadle Hulme School, as their Official USA University Scholarship Partner.

Cheadle Hulme is one of the largest and most successful schools in the North West, providing an outstanding and inspiring education that not only instils in its pupils a deep love of learning, but also the ability to adapt to change, challenge and opportunities in their lives beyond school.

Sport is an integral part of education at CHS, embodying the school’s core values of integrity, endeavour, resilience, compassion and contribution. The value placed on sporting opportunities by CHS has led to the school recently introducing the Elite Sport Pathway, aimed at providing opportunities for talented athletes at the school to develop and progress both within their chosen sport, and academically. As a result, Cheadle Hulme School is consistently producing young men and women with the sureness, knowledge and capabilities that match the key characteristics sought after by the top-performing universities in the United States.

Matt Higgins, Director of Sport at Cheadle Hulme School had the following to say, “The introduction of the Elite Sport Pathway in September 2018 allows students to combine the academic excellence of the school with the training model of a professional sportsperson. The partnership between CHS Sport and FirstPoint USA further enhances the sporting opportunities for our student-athletes, by providing a genuine pathway to the top universities in the States so that they can continue to work towards their educational and sporting aspirations.”


With regards to our new partnership, FirstPoint USA's Head of Scouting and Partnerships, Dean Kelbrick, has stated, “We are very excited to be working with Cheadle Hulme School, and providing a route into the US collegiate system for their talented student-athletes. Through the Elite Sports Pathway programme at CHS, the school provides opportunities for pupils to develop and thrive both academically and athletically. These pupils will be well placed to face the rigours of the student-athlete lifestyle in the USA, and we look forward to supporting these talented young people every step of the way.”


Think you have what it takes? Alongside our partners at CHS, we will be hosting US Sports Scholarship Assessments on Tuesday, 22nd January, 2019 at Cheadle Hulme School, Cheshire.
