Cowley Sixth Form students visit the famous Athenaeum Club

On Thursday 10 February, Cowley’s Sixth Form College’s Head Boy, Malama, Head Girl, Jess, and a number of Cowley Sixth Form Honours and Scholars students spent the afternoon at The Athenaeum Club in Liverpool.

Athenaeum Club, which was founded in the late 18th century, is one of the most iconic venues in Liverpool, famous for its library packed full of rare books including a copy of the Magna Carta from 1282.

Their host was the Vice Chair of Governors, Geoffrey Appleton, who is a former president of the Athenaeum Club.

They were joined at the event by Chair of Governors at Cowley, Margaret Bellis, Director of Sixth Form, Mrs Faulkner, and Head of Achievement, Mr Dunford.

The students were given a tour of the beautiful building before sitting down to discuss their future aspirations and Higher Education ambitions.

Upon their return to the sixth form after the event, the students’ feedback from their visit was overwhelmingly positive.

We’d like to thank Mr Appleton for his hospitality.
