Headteacher Mrs Gray, the governing board, staff and students extend a warm welcome to prospective pupils and their parents at an open evening on Wednesday, September 18, 5.30 pm to 8.30 pm. Alternatively, school is also open to visitors on Thursday, September 19, from 9.30 am to 2.30 pm. We believe that the best way to appreciate the outstanding environment and wide range of opportunities available is to visit the school.

The school was delighted to celebrate the 2019 Year 11 cohort’s brilliant GCSE results last month, when the school achieved a positive Progress 8 figure as a result of students surpassing their target grades and performing better than national expectations.

Mrs Gray said: “I feel privileged to lead a team of staff who consistently demonstrate an unfailing commitment to the young people in our care and I am absolutely delighted that the hard work of both students and staff has been reflected in this year’s results.

“St Michael’s students are committed to the school’s core Christian values: to show love, care and kindness to all in the community, to value what we have and to share with others and to enable everyone to achieve their full potential.

“Within this environment, they are able to enjoy the first-class facilities in a state-of-the-art building. The combination is obviously a successful one.

“Our Student Voice has received acclaim from across the borough and beyond; their work on raising awareness of issues affecting young people, such as social isolation, youth violence, knife crime, and our ongoing campaign to promote positive mental health, has been recognised this year with, amongst many other awards, an Outstanding Young Community Project Award from the West Midlands Police and Crime Commissioner.

“Students across all year groups have benefited from a variety of trips and visits throughout the year, culminating in the annual performing arts trip. This year the location was Salzburg in Austria where 48 students took part in public performances throughout the week at various venues – plans for next year’s trip to Spain are already under way!”
