Ex-Student Returns to Offer Advice on University

Former Cardinal Heenan student Ben Kwapong returned to the school recently to offer some advice to our current Sixth Form students.

Ben is currently in his second year at Liverpool University reading Psychology. He was invited back to school to discuss his experiences of  studying A2, applying to a Russell Group university and his experience of studying at Liverpool  University.

The current Year 13 students, Elliot Powell, Kieran Gaul and Michael Nolan are all interested in reading Psychology at university and used their time with Ben to discuss the options available to them.

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
