Welcome from the Principal

A Warm Welcome From Principal, Mr Cormack

Welcome to Cowley International College and thank you for taking the time to visit our website.

I hope that you find the information useful and it gives you an insight into our friendly and supportive community.

Cowley is a high school and Sixth Form College with approximately 1500 students, of which 350 are in the Sixth Form.

Cowley is steeped in history and is one of the oldest schools in St Helens, if not the oldest, having been founded in 1716.

Cowley is a warm, caring and vibrant community – there is always something happening here in our school, whether that be dance shows, sporting events, clubs or special guest talks.  When we say to our new students that ‘there is something for everyone’ in terms of extra-curricular, we really mean it!  Our extracurricular timetable covers a full eight-page brochure, and whether a students’ interest be chess, reading, science or sport, we will likely have a club for them to join.

We value every person at Cowley and we are driven by an underlying philosophy captured in five words – ‘Achieving the highest standards together’.

We believe that every young person deserves the best possible education, regardless of background and ability, and we work with determination to ensure that we unlock their potential.

I feel enormously proud and privileged to be the Principal at Cowley.

Cowley is a wonderful College and I would encourage any parent/carer who is considering Cowley for their daughter/son to visit us at one of our open evenings or to contact the college to organise a visit.

Mr Cormack, Principal
