There are two ways to reach St Michael’s Catholic School: from Beatrice Road and from Bassett Road.
If you come along Bassett Road you look up and see the tower of St Michael’s Church. If you come to the school by Beatrice Road then you have to pass the Church to walk down to the school. That’s one of the good things about the Church and the school – see one and you see the other!
Easy to agree, then, with the statement in the foyer of the school and on all school letterhead: “Be it known to all who enter here that Jesus Christ is the reason for this school!”
I trust you will enjoy your time at St Michael’s Catholic School – that you will be fully involved in its life and the life of the Parish. If there is any way I can help, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Children in Year 4 are invited to take part in the Becoming Church Programme, which celebrates the First Reconciliation, Confirmation and First Holy Communion of our young people. This programme helps parents to prepare their children for further initiation into the Church. The lessons begin at the start of each school year and continue until the Feast of Corpus Christi in June.
Each Monday morning the whole school participates in meditation in the Parish Centre led by Monsignor. Parents are welcome to join the children and teachers for a time of reflection and meditation. This is a very special element of St Michael’s Catholic School.
