St Michael's
We believe that a three way partnership between the school, its students and their parents is vital to success


Visioning Workshop

At our most recent parent forum, we touched on concerns around knife crime and youth violence. With this in mind, we have contacted Anti-Violence Campaigner, Alison Cope and have organised a visioning workshop.  This time will allow us to come together and look at suggested approaches to create a bespoke response/campaign for our school and the wider community. 

Alison is a force to be reckoned with and her painful personal experience echoes an extremely powerful message for both young people and parents alike.  In addition to Alison, we have invited representatives from the WM Police and Youth Services not to mention members of Student Voice.

The details of the evening are as follows:

Mickies' Biccies & Brew

Mickies’ Biccies & Brew is our weekly coffee morning for the over 60s.  The group has been running since 2015 offering local residents the chance to drink tea, talk, learn new skills and, most importantly, socialise with others.  The group develops its own timetable of activities and regularly has guest speakers from local organisations.  Students attend the coffee morning on a regular basis to meet the residents and take part in games and activities such as beetle drive, knit and natter, card making, flower arranging and much more.   They also showcase their work and talk about school life.  Our coffee morning runs every Monday morning and if you would like to find out more please contact Kerry Whitehouse or Carole Annetts on 0121 561 6881.


Rowley Multi-Agency Forum

As a school we strongly believe in success through partnership and, with young people at the heart of our school, it is vital that we embrace a multi-agency approach.  The Rowley Multi-Agency Forum (RMAG) has been running for more than a decade, bringing together agencies and organisations from the local area.  Our meetings take place every half term and we regularly invite students to lead on agenda items or showcase examples of ‘good practice’.  Members of this group include West Midlands Police, Local Neighbourhood Team, Young People’s Services, local councillors, Community Alcohol Programme, St Giles Church, primary schools and more.  If you would like to find out more about attending one of our meetings, please email Kerry Whitehouse at 



Butler’s Creative Arts School 

Butler’s Creative Arts School (BCAS) takes place at St Michael's Church of England High School. It was founded in 2008 and developed further by Michael Butler, the Senior Tutor for the programme. The ethos behind BCAS is to deliver artistic excellence to the pupils who have outstanding creative ability from Key Stages 3 to 5 (young people aged 11-18) and help them fulfil their creative potential.  These private art classes are based on practical application of the arts and teaching pupils about art history from a global perspective.  The programme aims to provide young students with access to a broad and in-depth cultural experience that goes beyond the school environment.
