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.

“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."
