Everything we do for our young people at St Michael’s is rooted in our core values of Aspiration, Belief and Creativity: St Michael’s ABC.
This includes not only preparing pupils for their next steps, but also encouraging them to look further forward to what they might want to achieve in their future education and subsequent careers.
We encourage every pupil to aspire to the highest standards of academic and personal development whilst they are at St Michael’s. We celebrate the values and qualities that will enable young people to thrive in whatever path their life takes. Likewise, we also encourage pupils to aim high in their future aspirations, and to start thinking about paths to achieve the very best futures for themselves.
So much of an individual’s progress is built on belief; belief in themselves and what they are capable of. Our desire is to build resilience in young people whether from without or within. We believe this will stand our students in good stead when it comes to gaining entry to their chosen careers, as well as subsequently progressing to the highest levels within those careers.
Never before has creativity been as important as it is now, in times of increasingly rapid technological and social change and growing globalization. Creativity is not an optional extra in the modern world, it is a quality which enables us to thrive and adapt in any environment.
