St. Michael’s Catholic School plans open days
A Catholic school in Buckinghamshire is opening its doors in September and October so that children and parents alike can witness what makes it unique.
Formed in 2012 by the amalgamation of St. Augustine’s Primary School and St. Bernard’s Catholic School, St Michael’s is comprised of two campuses, one all-through school in High Wycombe and a secondary Campus in Aylesbury. Both follow the same mission statement, reflecting the thoughts and ideas of pupils: “Achieving in faith, with love as a community.”
St. Michael’s High Wycombe campus provides a Catholic education to pupils from age three to 18, with its learning communities committed to providing an excellent education for all its pupils in a challenging and aspirational environment. Opened in 2018, the Aylesbury campus delivers education to pupils from 12 to 16 years of age, and during its short life has already developed an excellent reputation for providing a fully rounded education for all pupils in a nurturing and aspirational environment. Parents in Aylesbury had sought a Catholic secondary school for a number of years, and the new campus has been received extremely well by the Aylesbury community.
“As a Catholic school, we understand the importance of being a learning community that lives its life according to the teachings of Christ,” says Interim Executive Headteacher, Mr Adam Palmer. “The whole community at St Michael’s embraces the responsibility for the Christian formation of those entrusted to our care as we support each young person’s journey into adulthood; a journey of faith and spirituality. All members of the community are loved, valued and encouraged to grow in an atmosphere of service and mutual respect.
“It is our aim to provide the best education for our pupils,” Mr Palmer adds. “We believe in placing the child, made in the image of Christ, at the heart of all that we do. It is a real privilege for us, as educators, to walk alongside the children as they grow in their faith and knowledge.
“At St. Michael’s, we are committed to ensuring that our pupils succeed and go on to be responsible loving citizens who make a positive and inspirational contribution to society.”
St. Michaels’ campus at High Wycombe is the first to have an open evening, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm on Wednesday, September 22, where guided tours will be available. There will then be open mornings, from 9.30am, on Wednesday, September 29 and Wednesday, October 20.
For Aylesbury, the open evening is on Wednesday, October 6, from 4.30pm to 7.30pm, with the open mornings being on Thursday, September 30 and Thursday, October 21.
