It’s been good to get back to St Michael’s at the end of this week as I’ve been away inspecting a school in central London. Driving the 9 miles to their playing fields I had plenty of opportunity to go past lots of schools in London and it brought home to me how fortunate we are to have so much space and everything on hand. Of course facilities aren’t everything but the offer here is exceptional. The beating heart of the school of course is the pupils and the staff and the community of parents and carers around our pupils.
It was good to meet prospective parents at our Open Morning on Tuesday and the children always bubble with enthusiasm showing round a prospective parent. Next week our Year 8 will be sharing their views on St Michael’s with the senior leaders representing their senior schools at the senior schools fair. The next fair will be in three years’ time so do please come along. You will marvel at the buzz and hopefully save yourself a lot of time in choosing the next stage of education for your children.
Have a great weekend wherever you are.
