SMC Life is out now!
Our ever popular student produced termly newspaper was released this week. It features all the top stories and moments that have occured during the term, including excursions, the valentine's disco, geography field trip, graduation dinner and much more!
With the guidance and assistance of Mr Stracey, our English teacher and chief journalist, the students at SMC have managed to produce yet another top quality and highly readable newspaper in which memories of school life will last forever.
SMC Life is our longest standing production at the school, written by the students for the students. Congratulations to our newspaper club for producing yet another top quality edition!
World Cup fever hits Saint Michael's College
With the world cup in full swing, everybody involved with SMC has been getting excited. An article about the school has even been featured in the three major local newspapers! Deep in the heart of the British countryside, Saint Michael's College stands as a multicultural and diverse community within a typically British town.
Here's the story, written by our very own taxi driver Cliff Slade:

An Englishman in Tenbury has found himself surrounded by supporters of Brazil.
With three lions on his shirt Mike Slade struck an isolated lion pose at St Michael’s International College.
Mike was overwhelmed by some of the Brazilian national students who were not allowing being away from the World Cup ‘kick off’ to lessen their passion and pride for the host nation.
Mike regularly escorts and transports the students from the school to universities, airports and excursions all over the country during their academic year studies at St Michael’s.
Driven by team Brazil fanaticism and donned in the famous team colours of canary-yellow colour the students clearly outnumbered and out voiced the lonely lion.
As studies and exams reach a climax over the next few weeks, the students will return home with many of them already having tickets for games in Brazil.
Mike said: "Let’s hope England will also feature in some of those games – dare to dream. As for the students it’s Brazil all the way."
Revision guides distributed in time for the Easter break
With the final day of term upon us, students will go into the Easter holidays armed with a secret weapon to exam success. Teachers have been busy compiling individual subject files for each course taught at the school, designed to help students prepare for their exams at the end of next term. The revision guides have been created for GCSE, A Level and university foundation students and also include tips and suggestions on how to revise - from organising your workspace to eating the right food!
With three weeks away from the school it is really important that students use this time wisely to prepare for their examinations, and this guide will help them if used properly
dedicated to their studies during Easter.
Our aim at the school is always to make sure that students gain the best grades possible in their exams and we are confident that these revision guides can further assist in preparing our students and maintaining a high pass rate year after year.
Football team triumphs against Ludlow College
Our football team hosted Ludlow College this afternoon and put on a spectacular display of football. Their skill, tactical discipline and unity as a team saw them overcome local rivals 5 - 0
A slow first half in which the team scored only one goal was followed by a thrilling second half which saw two free kicks converted by Russian midfield supremo V Omshin. Stunning goals from E McCauley and J Molokovics capped off a brilliant display and the excellent through balls delivered from F Selyukov were instrumental in ensuring a flowing passing game.
Good work guys!
To celebrate Shrove Tuesday we held our second annual pancake race. The pancakes were served for dessert at lunch time with lemon juice, sugar, jam and chocolate sauce and the remaining ones were taken to the tennis courts in preparation for the event. The number of students eager to compete was high and they were organised into their houses to compete. Although each house fought fiercly for the honour of becoming SMC's best pancake flippers it was Elgar house who emerged victorious!
