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

Head of Sports and Social Activities Miss Coombes put it like this: “I wanted to have activities available to people who were not sports people.” A moment of inspirational “go crazy” spawned the idea of a craft session.
Ludlow Food Festival
A few weeks ago, our students (and who of them aren’t) attended the Annual Food Festival held in nearby Ludlow. The fine weather and thought of succulent dishes brought out many local people and tourists to view, and indeed taste the dishes on offer. Amid the stalls there were singers and a band and a cookery course was being taught in another area. What dishes caught the attention of our students then?
My Host Family Experience
- by Bedo
After the Easter break and on our return to School in April and what was to be my last term at Saint Michael’s I decided to change from being a residential student living on the school campus to living with an English host family in Tenbury Wells. This would be a great opportunity to experience the English culture from its very heart, living and truly understanding the English family way of life.

There is always a cookery club held on Tuesday and Wednesday during prep. The chef normally plans what we should be cooking but sometimes students just want to cook/bake other things by themselves, for instance a few students will bake a chocolate cake instead of baking cupcakes. The atmosphere in the cookery club is fun, we do enjoy cooking with our friends.
Science Health Expedition to Cardiff

It was a cold-ish day at school but that didn’t stop the Saint Michael’s bus venturing into the open with the destination of Cardiff University of Medicine. The reason – the Science Health exposition and talks.
To conclude, it was an amazing day and I advise anyone that is looking towards applying for any sort of medical course to go!

Photography Club is a place where students depict their perspective of the world. A place where photographers from all around the globe meet up and show us the beauty of pictures and how the most simple of matter can be pictured as a masterpiece.

Steven now works in the International Business Department of the Hong Kong Metro system. He made the trip over to see his former teachers and have dinner with the host family with whom he lived with when he was a student here. “It was great to see them again” said Steven. “This trip was launched to bring back memories.”
Talent Show 2017

After lots of hard work we all put into raising around £470 with the Student-Staff football match and the staff carwash, we were granted the long expected NCS Graduation dinner.
The evening started around 6pm. We all got dressed up smartly and made our way to the venue where the NCS staff were waiting to welcome and walk us in. We arrived at the venue and the atmosphere was perfect for us. We were handed our starter cocktails and made our way to our tables.
After a small introduction from the CEO of the school and the marketing managers of the NCS programme, 3 very brave students - Anas, Leonardo and Khoi - gave a small speech about their experience they had on the programme. After the certificates were handed out, it was time for the Disco! The DJ created a dance battle where Todd and Jessica ended up in a tie. Students were able to challenge the winners and we all had so much fun. I personally was walking around with a camera in my hands, visually documenting every moment of the evening.
To conclude, it was a great night and an even greater overall experience when we realised how much fun we had whilst learning a lot of new things. We all did great and look forward to more experiences like this in the future!
NCS Charity Fair
Charity Football Match: Students Vs Staff
Match preview: Comments from staff and students:
This is an event organised by the pupils on the National Citizenship Service. A lot of discussion and preparation has gone into this match to be held this Wednesday. Various members of staff have volunteered their services, in spite of being out of practice in many cases. Housemaster Mr. Glare admitted himself that he has not put boot to leather in a good while. He said however that he feels very fit and ready for the fray.
Pupils are also excited about this event. Stoyan says that he intends to support the teachers.
The match will run simultaneously with a staff car wash outside the Science Block. Those wishing to have their cars clean as a whistle will have to pay £3 for the service. This will go to charity. But “we’re only doing the exterior” added Jessica.
Match afterview: Comments from staff and students:
Through on and off drizzle that slowly soaked both pitch and players, both students and staff looked as though they really enjoyed it. The power seemed to rest with the staff, whilst speed and agility favoured the younger players. Staff and students worked well as a team and a community spirit seemed to be taking root among the spectators. It was all in good cause and funds were collected for charity. Well done to the NCS students who organised it.
The staff Car Wash also went well, with students wielding detergents and hoses and seeming to get quite wet in the process themselves. Many staff drove home in shiny clean vehicles that evening and more money was raised for charity.
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

Contemporary dancers strive to connect the mind and the body through fluid dance movements. There are around 15 of us taking part and we…Details
Liverpool When we arrived in Liverpool, we did a little shopping before finding a great restaurant for some lunch. Horrible football – I’m joking of course – to those Liverpool fans. We noticed the streets were made from a weird material, they were very different to Peruvian roads. We also saw some extremely good architecture and…Details
This was our first stop on our trip to the north of England. After a three hour journey we disembarked from the coach, picked up our tickets and lanyards to hang around our neck as evidence that we were bona fide visitors. We waited a while in the café before making our way through the…Details
One final tradition took place of the last lunchtime of the year. Christmas fare was served to one and all by Mr. Higgins, in full Father Christmas attire, and Mrs Hall giving support to our new chef Mr Astley (elf for the day). Students were treated to a medley of festive songs, even making their…Details
