What says..

Less than four miles to Sevenoaks and once you have arrived at the school, the 90 acres of grounds, which swoop up and down before the main house are stunning.

What the school says...

St Michael’s school is a non-selective coeducational school promoting a rich, varied, broad and balanced education within a Christian context. We challenge and stimulate pupils to achieve their best and strive for excellence; fostering in them a sense of wonder, and joy in learning, so that they take real pride in their accomplishments. Children are helped to understand themselves as individuals, their feelings, how they can affect others and to show tolerance and respect for the diversity of the world.
Culturally the school provides a wide sporting, musical, artistic and dramatic programme to which all pupils are encouraged to participate.
We recognise that every child is an individual and aim to promote their happiness, self-confidence and well-being as members of a caring community. Children are given opportunities to make a difference to their school and to the wider world. The school motto; perseverance, wisdom, gratitude encapsulates the cornerstones of this education.
Through perseverance children learn to win and lose gracefully, overcome difficulties and gain resilience. As their knowledge grows, the school teaches children to have the wisdom to use this knowledge well and to be grateful for all the blessings they receive in life and in their education.
