St. Michael's Community Academy is a well-established part of the local community in Coppenhall. Our current building dates back to the late 1960's and has been modernised and refurbished extensively during recent years. Our predecessor school was originally located on Broad Street (the building is still there today) and dates from the 19th Century, making us one of the older schools in the area. Although we are not a church school, we enjoy very close historic links with St. Michael's Church.
Our building is divided into a Foundation Stage/Key Stage 1 wing (2-7 year olds) and Key Stage 2 wing (7-11 year olds). Our classrooms are bright, vibrant and well equipped with state of the art teaching and ICT facilities. As part of our commitment to developing a curriculum fit for the 21st Century, every child is equipped with their own personal iPad to aid them in their learning from Year 2 upwards, which they keep throughout their time with us.
Our school is set in pleasant surroundings, with separate playgrounds and specialist age–appropriate play equipment for the Foundation Stage, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 children. In addition, we have a very large school field with a well-equipped outdoor learning area (Forest School), as well as a purpose built multi-use sports area - ideal for active playtimes and extra-curricular clubs!
