Admission Policy and Documents 


The ethos of St Michael’s is Catholic. The school was founded by the Catholic Church to provide education for children of Catholic families. The school is conducted by the Board of Directors and Academy Committee(governors) as part of the Catholic Church in accordance with its Trust Deed and Instrument of Government and seeks at all times to be a witness to Jesus Christ. We ask all parents applying for a place here to respect this ethos and its importance to the school community. This does not affect the right of parents who are not of the faith of this academy to apply for and be considered for a place here.
