Student Leadership

At Saint Michael’s we believe celebrating the leadership skills of our students is a priority. The leadership positions available within school allow students to make a difference within the school and local community. The positions allow students to develop an array of skills, which will be an integral part of living in the twenty first century.

Pupil Voice

Pupil voice is taken very seriously at St Michael’s. In addition to the leadership roles and school council pupils views on learning and teaching are regularly gathered. The Deputy Headteacher holds a Pupil Voice meeting each week in the Michaelmas term and in the Lent Term Curriculum and Subject Leaders also meet with pupils. School Improvement and the enhancement of learning are central to life at St Michael's and the contribution pupils make to our continued development is very highly valued.
