Ofsted Information

St Michael's Catholic High School received an Outstanding Ofsted rating in November 2014.

Students make outstanding progress and the vast majority achieve above-average standards in a range of subjects at GCSE, including English and mathematics.

Teaching is outstanding. Teachers teach with authority because they have good subject knowledge. They plan interesting and enjoyable learning activities, which challenge students to work hard and achieve their best.

Disadvantaged students, disabled students and those with special educational needs, make excellent progress and achieve well because the targeted funding is used effectively to support them. The most-able students are stretched and challenged in lessons, and participate in ‘master classes’ and visits to universities.

Students’ behaviour is outstanding. They are highly collaborative, courteous, polite and considerate.

The sixth form is outstanding. High expectations from leaders and teachers underpin students’ commitment to strive to achieve high grades. There is an increase in the proportion achieving higher grades and progressing to good universities.

Last Friday, Paul and Kyle came to surprise 7W with a cheque for £1000 towards the building of houses.  The company mission statement of PNT Contractors is, 'We don't build houses, we build homes' and their outstanding generosity was a true reflection of this. 4/5

The managing director of the company, Paul Connolly, who's two sons, Gary and Kyle, both attended St Michael’s, offered a financial incentive to spur the students on.  Kyle messaged the students and offered to pledge £200 if the students could raise a target of £800. 2/5

This year’s Lenten Campaign for Social Justice had the focus of building houses in Gode, Ethiopia. In true St Michael's fashion, 7W totally embraced this challenge with their fundraising enthusiasm. Word began to spread and local building company made contact. 1/5
