Newly Qualified Teacher

“I feel really proud to be placed in St Michael’s for my first teacher training placement. From my very first day, I have been encouraged and given the creative freedom to develop my own teaching style. The school has continually supported me and provided numerous opportunities for both personal and professional development. The students are enthusiastic about their learning and also take part in inspirational social justice initiatives across the school. It is the strong sense of community that sets St Michael’s apart and I feel privileged to be a part of it”.

“Working at St Michael's has restored my passion for teaching. Never before have I experienced such a supportive community. The leadership are approachable and encouraging, continually offering opportunities to explore and develop. The ethos of the school means the students are excited and enthusiastic to try new and creative lessons, which enables teachers to be brave and experimental with different teaching styles. This is a school that encourages aspirations and inspires the best in all”.

PALC

"Having worked at St. Michael's since I was an NQT, I am now in my 14th year at the school.  In this time I have been given many opportunities to progress my career, most recently being accepted to complete a secondment to SLT. I have seen two year groups through and am lucky to have worked with many talented, inspirational and aspirational young students at St Michael’s.  I feel privileged to work in a school with such a long and deep rooted Dominican history. I am encouraged and supported to participate in all aspects of school life as are all the students"
