Year 8 pupils thoroughly enjoyed themselves in London’s Stratford on their geography trip this week, despite the thundery downpours of rain. They collected data using business tallies, field sketches, Environmental Quality surveys and interviewing the public. They are investigating the social, economic and environmental impacts of the Olympic regeneration.

Over the next few weeks they will be analysing their data and coming to a conclusion about whether the regeneration has been a success for Stratford. This will form part of their assessment going towards the St Michael’s Diploma.

Everyone enjoyed seeing geography at work in the real world and looking at regeneration in a city. They also had great fun interviewing the public and learning more about the area. A highlight was having the opportunity to walk around the Olympic Park and seeing the stadium, Aquatic centre and Velodrome buildings up close.

  • My son began his journey at St Michael's last Friday in the Nursery class and, one week on, I have to write to say how impressed I am and how thrilled we are with our decision to send him to such an amazing school. The approach to settling them in has been perfect!

  • St Michael’s is a wonderful school. Fantastic teachers, a nurturing environment. It has suited our three children who are all very different in their academic and pastoral needs. Thank you.

  • We were struck by the warmth and kindness of everyone we met; pupils as well as staff. 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

  • My daughter has had such a wonderful school life at St.Michael’s. We really couldn’t have asked for a better school for her in terms of academic life, extra-curricular activities and friendship groups. We still can’t believe how quickly the time has flown by and that she will soon be leaving!
