SPORTS AND SOCIAL PROGRAMME


Great emphasis is placed on providing the students with an enjoyable and varied sports and social programme. On Wednesday afternoons students may choose from a number of options, including football, swimming, art, school magazine, squash, basketball, etc. Students with particular interests (e.g. taekwondo, karate, golf ) are encouraged to participate in clubs and societies in the local area. The school enters teams in regional, national and in some cases, international competitions. The College also arranges regular excursions at weekends to cities of interest such as Stratford- upon-Avon, Oxford and Bath. Students are not charged for these excursions. Optional excursions to London, Edinburgh, Alton Towers, premiership football matches, etc are also arranged, at extra cost.


Students are given a guide to the local area on arrival, the purpose of which is to give students information on local areas of interest and to encourage them to use their free time productively.


STUDENT WELFARE


Saint Michael’s College places great emphasis on the welfare of the students entrusted to us and great care and attention is given to each individual student.


On arrival at the school a personal tutor is allocated to each student. The tutor’s role is to ensure that the student has an individual member of staff to consult if he/she has any problems, either academic or personal. Tutors also write regular reports on academic progress.


The school also has a Counsellor, to whom students may speak about more personal matters.


Outside of normal school hours we operate an emergency telephone so that in the event of an emergency students, parents or host families can contact a member of staff.


The school has a Matron whom students may see if they are feeling unwell. In the event of a more serious medical or dental problem the Matron will arrange for the student to see a doctor or be taken to the local hospital.


Students who choose to live with a host family are collected each day and taken to and from College by our own school buses and minibuses. The families we select are usually no more than 30 minutes drive from the school. No student is expected to walk or take public transport.
