GCSE Results Day Success!
We are delighted to share the huge success of our Year 11 pupils at GCSE in 2016.
Our pupils and staff are celebrating yet another year of significant improvement in many subjects, especially in Mathematics. English results remain outstanding.
More importantly again, our 2016 results now place Cardinal Heenan Catholic High School amongst the very top performing secondary schools in the city.
Special mention needs to be made of the following boys who secured a particularly high number of top grades:
|Brew (Forshaw), Ellis||3A*||5A||2B|
Head teacher, Karen Smyth, says, “We have been on a journey, and are thrilled to see that so many of the strategies we have put in place to help our pupils to achieve their maximum potential have been so very, very successful.
“We have done this as a team – pupils and staff alike. We have worked really hard and I am very proud of our boys and what they have achieved.
“All those after-school revision classes and the time our dedicated staff gave to teaching our exam classes at weekends and in school holidays have really paid off. We also had many training sessions in after-school hours that were completely devoted to improving teaching and learning in this school.
“I am very happy to say that we are now a school who can look forward to a very bright future academically.
“As a consequence of our success, we are really looking forward to making sure our current Year 11s follow in the footsteps of this year’s boys. We have many fabulous and talented Year 11 pupils, who I know will work very hard and get brilliant results, too.”
Many Cardinal Heenan Year 11s are now looking forward to starting their A level courses in the Cardinal Heenan Sixth Form Centre, where they will be following such A level courses as Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, English Language, English Literature, History, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Drama. We wish them every success.

“Praise the Lord because he is good. His faithful love will last forever.”
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. JOHNSTONE: What? What?
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."
"Don't be afraid! I am here with good news for you, which will bring great joy to all the people."
