Let's Celebrate


Arthur Ellis, Former Teacher

In 1936 Arthur Ellis joined the staff team at Cheadle Hulme School where he spent a long and illustrious career as a biology teacher and Head of Science, retiring in 1973.

During this time, he served in the Second World War from 1940-1945, though never forgot Cheadle Hulme School. He wrote continuously to headteacher Mr Lockhart. As well as recounting his wartime experiences from his posting in the Middle East, he described how he would think of the school “every single day”. He looked forward to returning to the school and asked about his forms' progress, and the success of the lacrosse team regularly over this period.

The school archive houses 27 letters from Arthur to Mr Lockhart.
