The Curriculum at St. Michael's aims to give children the knowledge, skills and opportunities to be successful learners and to prepare them for their future development, both in their own education and as members of society. Our curriculum aims to empower our children to reach their full potential, develop self-confidence and pursue interest in a wide range of subject areas.
Through a broad learning programme the children build on prior knowledge and are immersed in subject specific lessons that develop their skills in each area. Our children learn to become Historians, Geographers, Artists and Designers. They learn to be scientists, mathematicians and writers. They learn to participate in sports, work in teams and reflect on the ideas, opinions and values of others.
Through the widespread use of technology we aim to open opportunities for children to develop as independent and critical learners, using the format they feel is best to showcase their knowledge and understanding.
