Sixth Form

Cardinal Heenan operates from a purpose-built Sixth Form Centre which we share with our neighbours Broughton Hall High School.

It opened in September 2012 and features first-class facilities including science labs, ICT suites, quiet study areas and a large canteen.

We aim to create a friendly, safe and supportive environment where all of our students enjoy an excellent standard of teaching, access to a wide and challenging choice of courses and the guidance needed to ensure success.

We also offer a programme of exciting and engaging enrichment activities.

Entry to our Sixth Form is open to students who have a genuine wish to continue their education beyond the age of 16. They are expected to fulfil the relevant course entry requirements and must sign a contract prior to admission.

We offer a wide range of academic and vocational subjects and take pride in our consistently strong results.  Our most recent Ofsted report rated the sixth form as good, where “learners…achieve well and the provision is very well led and managed.

We encourage our students to continue into further and higher education, training or employment and support them whilst they are with us to make the best possible choices and decisions for their future.

Our new Key Stage 5 Brochure can be downloaded here or obtained in hard copy by contacted the sixth form office. You can also download our Key Stage 5 Course Outlines.
