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. Wooded hills for bushcraft, camping and fitness runs, plus games fields and pitches. In the modern science labs we watched white-coated children experiment with the boiling point of water and our enthusiastic guides (‘science is really fun here’) were keen to tell us all about explosions, trips and their participation in the national CREST competition (they designed a games console)...

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.

Entrance

The majority (intake of 40) enter the pre-prep at 2+, but there are additional entry points in reception, year 3 (and year 7). Prospective parents need to get on the waiting list as early as possible. Some sibling priority and an informal assessment day, but entry is not selective and places are offered to those heading the list in the June, 15 months prior to entry. The majority of pupils come from within a seven-mile radius.

Entry at 7+ is via a standard maths test, together with a school reading and English test. Entry into year 7 is via maths and English test and being observed participating in a normal school day. Bursaries from year 3 and scholarships and bursaries for year 7 entry.
