Coronavirus and the Admissions Department

We are still here to guide and support you in the choice of a school for your child or children. The Admissions Department is still OPEN every weekday to answer any queries you may have about starting your child at St Michael’s for September 2021 or any future years. Instead of Taster Days we can offer a place on the basis of your child’s most recent school report and a reference from their current school. We are finding that schools are still able to provide this information. We can also provide a virtual meeting with our Head, Nik Pears, and our Head of Pre-Prep, Zerrin Leech.

We would also like to suggest you look at our Instagram, YouTube, Twitter and Facebook pages, which are an excellent indication of everyday life at St Michael’s. There is also a virtual tour of the school which you can watch on our Videos Page.

“Dear Jane and Jenni,

We would like to thank you for the terrific tour of St Michael’s yesterday. We enjoyed meeting you both, Mrs Aisher and Mrs Leech, as well as seeing your incredible school.

We were struck by the warmth and kindness of everyone we met; pupils as well as staff. You have fantastic facilities, and we appreciate the time that was taken to show us around. My husband was particularly impressed with the IT education on offer, and we both commented on how pupils were enjoying lessons across the school. We believe in giving our son the right start and instilling in him the joy of learning and satisfaction from achievement. We can see this happening at St Michael’s.

Having spent the past few months visiting a number of schools, and following our tour yesterday, we both agreed St Michael’s as our unanimous choice. We believe St Michael’s would make a great fit for our family.”

From a prospective Nursery parent.
