The first aid session introduced the students to the importance of CPR,…Details

Fun in the Sun
Last week, our students made the most of the hot weather by enjoying some fun in the sun!
After a very hot afternoon of sports, some students took the opportunity to cool off in the pool. And to celebrate the end of term, the students enjoyed a lovely sunny day at Barry Island, Wales. Some were even brave enough to have a swim in the sea!
ACP Group Activity Week
Last week, our Academic Prep course went on an activity week where they explored the surrounding area and further afield to learn about British culture and heritage.
On Monday we went canoeing down the beautiful river Wye from Hay-on-Wye, known as the town of books, to Whitney-on-Wye, a journey of some three miles! Although there were plenty of sore arms at the end and one or two unplanned ‘swims’ everyone enjoyed working as a team to get us to where we had to go.
Tuesday saw us travel all the way to Cardiff - the capital of Wales - to visit St Fagans, an open air museum showing students what life was like in Wales throughout the ages. Students were able to visit replica Victorian style shops and see how goods were made before the modern technology that we take for granted today.
We stayed a little closer to home on Wednesday and visited Worcester. After a visit to the cathedral where we saw the tomb of King John and a scenic walk along the canal - where some of our students were kind enough to help the lock keeper operate the locks along the canal to let boats through. The students were also allowed some time alone to explore the historic city at their own pace. To finish off the day we visited the Commandery, the site where King Charles conducted the final battle of the English Civil war. As well as learning about the English Civil War students also had the opportunity to try on some of the clothes worn in battle at the time, including those of pikemen and musketeers.
Our final day saw us return to Cardiff and Big Pit, the museum of Welsh mining. Here students were able to experience the dangerous life of a coal miner and even descended into an actual coal mine 300 feet deep, with nothing but a dim torch to guide them!
A great week was had by all!

The latest experiment that was organized by our students was the investigating iron tablets. Haemoglobin, in red blood cells, has haem groups containing Iron, which bond to oxygen and transport it around the body. When there is a lack of iron in the organism (iron deficiency) it can cause serious problems as oxygen intake decreases.…Details
Our boarders had an amazing time exploring Oxford this month. Visiting Christchurch College was a real highlight.The buildings were so grand and magical, it felt like we had just stepped onto the Harry Potter filmset!
Monday morning assemblies have a sense of sparkle about them these days. On a cold winter morning it could be a moment to set our pupils up for the week. Inspiring models of behaviour are the watchwords here and the other week our pupil Nashm prepared a poem to read to the assembled school. It…Details
We have been fortunate to welcome a group of Peruvians students to King’s College Saint Michaels this term. They were a great addition to the school joining in lessons whilst improving their English. An impressive programme of weekend visits took them far and wide including a trip to Oxford, watching a Manchester United match at…Details
If you went up to the Common Room on Saturday you would have been confronted by a room festooned with balloons, rose petals, hearts, decorations and other accessories for the annual Valentine’s Day Disco. There was a lot of dancing, with good music played by ace DJs Martin and Nashm. Mostly upbeat, thumping rhythms were…Details
What a day to go to Cardiff! A little peaceful shopping perhaps? A jaunt around the celebrated castle ruins and reflection upon medieval times? Not on this day, anyway. Yes, we could go shopping, yes we could go around the castle, but our attention was drawn principally by the feel of carnival around us. Drummers…Details
We arrived late afternoon and noticed how different it was from the UK before even getting off the plane. It had been a while since we’d last seen the sun still shining after 5 p.m. The ride over to the hotel had us gawking at the marvelous city. Seeing Madrid made me realize that love…Details
