The staff and Governors of St Michael’s Church of England High School take great pleasure in congratulating the 2022 Year 11 cohort for their record breaking GCSE results. We are very proud that our students achieved the second 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 Spanish, biology, chemistry, physics and hospitality. Over 90 percent achieved 9-4 or equivalent in art, textiles, child development, sport, music, performing arts and health and social care.
Many of our students achieved grade 9s or the vocational equivalent: in total, 105 students across a range of 24 subject areas achieved the top grade in at least one subject. Individual performances were extraordinary with one student, Eliana Bankole, achieving eight grade 9s or equivalent. Additionally, three students achieved seven grade 9s or equivalent: Honor Cartwright, Ameeta Bahra, and Jessica Postings. We are also very proud of our students who have made significant progress from Key Stage 2. Bartosz Mironiuk made the most progress, achieving two grades 9s or equivalent, five grade 8s, two 7s and two 6s, followed by Aman Gura, Zuzanna Monaghan, Kiki Paul, and Paige Harvey.
A special mention must go to our late Headteacher, Mrs Jayne Gray, who worked tirelessly to improve the outcomes for our students. Achieving the highest results in the school’s history is a testament to her dedication to the students of St Michael’s. 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.
We are extremely proud of the hard work and dedication of staff and students in achieving our recent results.
