St Michael's School 

St Michael’s School is our Church School.  It is a Voluntary Aided Church of England Primary School located in Apton Road, a short distance away from the Church.  The school maintains a distinctive Christian ethos and enjoys a special association and close relationship with St Michael’s Church.  For example, the whole school community worships in the Church several times each year, and the clergy at St Michael’s visit the school each week to lead worship and they are involved in many of the school's activities and events.  The Parochial Church Council (PCC) of the Church appoints Foundation Governors to serve on the school’s Governing Body.

The school is in the Diocese of St Albans and has an active association with the Diocesan Board of Education.  They provide guidelines, information and resources relating to Church Schools concerning Christian character, R.E. and collective worship.  The Diocese provides training for staff, clergy and Governors.

The school has achieved the R.E. Gold Quality Mark for embedding excellent, creative and innovative R.E. practice throughout the school and for recognition as outstanding in the wider community.

During Lockdown St Michael's School staff organised a wonderful message for all parents and carers:

The whole school Prayer Trail day in 2019 culminated in the opportunity for families to walk from the school to the church and write prayers on links which were threaded together to make a prayer chain:

A message from the Vicar: "Huge thanks to St Michael’s School children, who drew bright, colourful stained glass window panels of Old Testament stories to decorate the boarding installed where thieves broke in. And thanks to Mrs Tozer for organising this. It has replaced the ugliness left by the break in with some joyful and welcome colour and light."
