Community

Our extended school provision is an expanding range of activities that take place outside the normal teaching day for the benefit of our students, their parents and members of the local community.

For students of all ages, this work builds on our PE core curriculum and allows them to try their hand at something new such as Tae Kwon Do or fencing. 

In recent months our extended school community has grown and current students, ex-students, their parents and friends return time and time again to train together – it's a real family affair at Cardinal Heenan!

Rates are very competitive and the profits raised are retained by the school and reinvested in equipment and experiences that directly benefit our students.

This extended provision links closely to our aims and values as a specialist sports college. In sharing our facilities and expertise we hope to offer real and lasting health benefits to our learners, those in partner schools, their parents, siblings and members of the public.

All of our fantastic sporting facilities are available to hire and are regularly enjoyed by outside groups and organisations. The local neighbourhood youth project uses our football pitches as do a number of amateur and junior football clubs and the local cricket team also train here.

Cardinal Heenan also plays host to regular half term activity camps for children and young people aged 5 to 14 years of age. Attendees have the opportunity to turn their hand to cookery, drama, sporting, magic, media and languages.
