Getting Ready for the Future at UCAS Evening

Year 13 students and their parents were guided through the process of applying to university and the world of student finance by the University of Liverpool and the UCAS finance team at our university information night.

The event, which was arranged in collaboration with Broughton Hall, saw a great turn out with all students leaving with a good understanding of what they need to do next.

All Cardinal Heenan students looking to go to university next year must now complete their personal statements and have these checked by form tutors, Mr Astar or Mrs O'Farrell by October 17 to ensure that they get their teacher reference done by the start of November.

There are after school personal statement sessions on a Friday with Mrs O'Farrell and there is a workshop with Mr Astar on October 7.

Bible Quote

“Praise the Lord because he is good.  His faithful love will last forever.”
Psalm 136:1

Word of the Week

Machiavellian (adjective)

Subject which uses this term: English Literature; Drama; History; Politics

Meaning: cunning, scheming, and unscrupulous.

For example: ‘Mrs Lyons is Machiavellian. She manipulates Mrs Johnstone into giving up her baby. She uses Mrs Johnstone’s superstitious nature to ensure she gets what she wants.’

MRS. LYONS: You do know what they say about twins, secretly parted, don’t you?


MRS. LYONS: They say…they say that if either twin learns that he once was a pair, that they shall both immediately die. It means, Mrs. Johnstone, that these brothers shall grow up, unaware of the other’s existence. They shall be raised apart and never, ever told what was once the truth. You won’t tell anyone about this, Mrs. Johnstone, because if you do, you will kill them."

Thought for the Week


"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
