From the Head
It’s been another productive week here at St Michael’s. Pupils in Years 4 to 6 have been working hard in their exams and it has been good to see them settling down to these assessments and applying themselves well in this important area of school life. A huge thank you to all of the teaching staff for their hard work with this.
Sadly, the weather has been a bit variable and not all fixtures were able to take place, nevertheless it was good to welcome other local schools here to play cricket in between the rain clouds. Once again, it was a joy to see the grounds full of happy children enjoying their sports matches together.
The week ahead is a busy but exciting one. Next week we look forward to our Year 4 Roman Day, Whole School French Day, Prep Music Concerts, Scholars’ Day and Dinner, as well as the Stubbers Trip for Years 2 and 3. In particular, we are looking forward to welcoming the very talented Nicholas McCarthy on Thursday to host workshops with our Year 7 and 8 Scholars, followed by an evening of food and entertainment. Nicholas is famous for not only being an outstanding musician, but the first ever left-hand-only concert pianist to graduate from the Royal College of Music. Having met Nicholas a few times myself, I am thrilled to be welcoming him to St Michael’s to share his story and musical expertise with us.
I am also delighted to announce that in line with the updated Government guidance, pupils in Years 7 and 8 will no longer be required to wear face masks in school from Monday 17th May. I would like to take this opportunity to thank them for their maturity and compliance with this since the return to school on 8th March. As a school, we are very much looking forward to the increased opening up of school life over the coming weeks and I will be writing shortly to update you on our end of term events.
Many thanks for your ongoing support and I wish you a wonderful weekend.
