As I write to you, I am surrounded by a hive of activity at the new CHS South building.  I cannot wait to welcome your child to our new site in the coming weeks; details of how this process will work are outlined below.  We have used the most up to date guidance from the Government to inform our plan to return students safely to CHS South, which supports the easing of some COVID measures and a return to a more traditional school experience in places.  These plans remain under regular review, and we may need re-introduce restrictions as the term progresses depending on the situation in our locality.  


We begin the Autumn Term in our new school building at 451 Mauldeth Road West, Chorlton, Manchester, M21 7SX.  All consenting students will be tested upon their return to school and again later in the first two weeks.  Please follow the link here to indicate your consent for your child to be tested: https://www.chssouth.org.uk/parents/nhs-test-and-trace-covid-19-testing-consent-form.  We will stagger the return of students by Form Group on their first day back in school to support the testing process.  For your child this means they should attend school as follows: 


  • Monday 6th September 2021 – Year 9 students arrive for testing in full school uniform as follows and then return home: 

  • 9AU – 1:45pm 

  • 9CC - 2:00pm 

  • 9EW - 2:15pm 

  • 9EH - 2:30pm 

  • 9ET - 2:45pm 

  • 9GK – 2:45pm 

From Tuesday 7th September your child will follow the timings of the day outlined below.  Details of their specific break and lunch arrangements will be shared with students on their first day back in school: 

  • 8:00 – 8:20:  Free breakfast available​ 

  • 8:30 – 9:00am:  Form Time​ 

  • 9:00 – 10:00am:  Period 1​ 

  • 10:00 – 11:20am:  Period 2 (including 20-minute break)​ 

  • 11:20 – 12:20pm:  Period 3​ 

  • 12:20 – 1:50pm:  Period 4 (including 30-minute lunch break)​ 

  • 1:50 – 2:50pm:  Period 5​ 

  • 2:50 – 4:00pm:  Extra-curricular activities 


If you have any questions about this process, please contact us on [email protected] or on 0161 241 9930.  


Yours sincerely,
