THE SIXTH FORM CENTRE



            The Sixth Form Centre at Cardinal Heenan was built on the Broughton Hall High School
            Campus in 2012. It has easy access from the main Cardinal Heenan site. The centre is a
            beautifully lit, purpose-built structure for sixth form students. The centre provides classrooms,
            study areas, and catering facilities for the use of sixth form students only.

            The study area is a huge asset to the Sixth Form. It is an extensive, light and open area where
            students can work quietly either individually or in small groups. It is supervised constantly by the
            Sixth Form Study Centre Manager, Gary Aster, who plays an active role in helping the students
            in their work and ensuring that the atmosphere in the Study Centre is always conducive to
            study, Gary also runs advanced study skills sessions with small groups of Year 12 students.
            Students have ready access to school computers and laptops. There are also extra subject
            specific resources located within the study area. Notice boards display posters advertising
            universities and their open days as well as general important information for students.
            For those students that are considering applying to University there are bookshelves full
            of University prospectuses, and a designated UCAS board which provides a lot of useful
            information about the application process.
            The Sixth Form cafeteria is another very extensive space on the ground floor of the Sixth
            Form Centre. Despite its label as a cafeteria, it is, in fact, a multi-functional area within Sixth
            Form and is very much the hub of Cardinal Heenan Sixth Form life. It provides ample
            accommodation for those who wish to study while working in larger groups. It is also
            home to our catering area - hot and cold food and drinks are served from 8am
            until late afternoon by our designated sixth form catering assistants. There are
            notice boards in the cafeteria which provide students with information on
            the Student Council, and upcoming events.


               The Sixth Form Centre is a
            “ purposeful learning environment    “
