Graduation Ceremony 2018/19

Congratulations to students who were given a variety of awards in celebration of their achievements this year.  Awards were given for academic achievement, services to the community, excellent effort, most improvement, and progress in English.  We are very proud of all our students and their achievements.




Exploring Hereford Cathedral

Academic Preparation students and those who had finished their examinations, visited Hereford Cathedral this well to explore the tower and listen to a presentation on how the bells operate.  Hereford Cathedral is the cathedral church of the Anglican Diocese of Hereford in Hereford, England. Its most famous treasure is Mappa Mundi, a medieval map of the world created around 1300 by Richard of Holdingham. The map is listed on the UNESCO Memory of the World.
 




On Top of the World!

Academic preparation and students who had finished their G2 examinations, accepted the challenge of walking the Malvern Hills this week.  The group worked together to reach the highest peak and were rewarded with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside.  




Post Examination Fun at the Safari Park

As a special treat for students who had already finished their exams, we made a trip to West Midlands Safari Park in Bewdly.  Students enjoyed seeing all the amazing animals before heading to the fairground rides where teachers saw that they were still not too old for bumper cars!

Valentine’s Day disco

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…

Trip to Cardiff

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…

Scholars’ Dinner in Madrid

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…

Excursion to London

It was great.  The weather seemed a little grim but added to the romantic image of ‘Foggy Albion’ with street lamps .  There were lots of Christmas decorations and a seasonal market on the South Bank of the Thames.  Crowds packed Oxford Street and Leicester Square.  A host of runaway Santas gave voice to carols…

Carol Celebration

As Mr. Higgins remarked at the outset, the Carol Celebration is now a tradition at Saint Michael’s dating back ten years.  Indeed, A2 pupils arrived eager to give voice to songs they had perhaps first practised in GCSE 1.  There was a lot of merry fa-la-la-ing and encouragement to hear herald angels.  The Christmas tree…
