The staff and Governors of St Michael’s Church of England High School take great pleasure in congratulating the 2023 Year 11 cohort for their excellent GCSE results. We are very proud that our students achieved the third highest attainment in the whole of Sandwell. We would like to thank all staff for ensuring our students received the highest quality learning experiences and parents for their support throughout their time at St Michael’s. The hard work of our students paid off with 100 percent of our students achieving grade 9-4 or equivalent in biology, chemistry, physics and retail. Over 90 percent achieved 9-4 or equivalent in health & social care, sport and music.

Many of our students achieved grade 9s or the vocational equivalent: in total, 60 students across a range of 16 subject areas achieved the top grade in at least one subject. Individual performances were extraordinary with one student, Izzy Joesbury, achieving eight grade 9s or equivalent. Additionally, Chloe Winwood achieved seven grade 9s or equivalent. We are also very proud of our students who have made significant progress from Key Stage 2. Greisi Peca made the most progress, achieving five grades 9s or equivalent and five grade 8s, followed by Peter Wilmott, Reece Jones, Jacob Warmer, and Reece Woodall.

We are confident the academic success our students have achieved along with their personal development whilst at St Michael’s Church of England High School, will ensure these well-rounded individuals are ready to contribute positively to society. We wish all of our students the very best in their future, and they will always be a part of our St Michael’s family.
