A St Michael’s child stands out. Why? Because they are given the building blocks to confidently stand on their own two feet, listen and be polite, engage and think strategically, articulate their answers and know that they have been given the support, and warmth, from a school that believes in them every step of the way. Read our excellent ISI Inspection Report (Mar 2023).
St Michael’s offers unrivalled care and attention from the moment your child steps over the threshold. A St. Michael’s child is encouraged and challenged to achieve personal success whilst providing thorough preparation for the next phase of their education. Recently awarded the coveted Google Reference School status, we respectfully combine our traditional values with forward-thinking, to provide our pupils the best of both worlds.
We have an excellent record of academic achievement both in the 11+ and selective entry tests as well as pupils achieving a high standard in all their endeavours; in the support of others, in leadership and in developing as well-rounded individuals ready to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. As well as academic lessons, pupils are involved in musical activities, individual music lessons, choirs, orchestras and drama groups. Similarly, children are encouraged to participate in a wide variety of sporting activities and fixtures, discovering the value of teamwork and sportsmanship.
Our all-inclusive fee structure means that with the exception of instrumental and LAMDA drama classes, there are no additions to your termly invoice. More importantly, it enables all pupils to take advantage of the wide collection of extracurricular clubs / activities and educational visits both day and residential, at no additional cost.
I look forward to welcoming you to St. Michael’s for a tour and introducing you to the staff and children who make our School such a special place in which to grow and learn.

St Michael's School Motto

“Just a note to say thank you to St Michael's for our son's 8 years at the school. He's enjoyed every second of it and has fully embraced all the opportunities the school has to offer. I'm sure his time at the school will stand him in excellent stead for secondary school. As an additional mention, I wanted to let you know how wonderful Mrs Matthews has been for our daughter in Year 4. We've always felt that the teaching has been very good at the school but Mrs Matthews seems to be on a whole other level! Her communication, feedback and encouragement has been excellent. She has clearly spent time really getting to understand the children and our adughter's confidence and ability has come on in leaps and bounds. We cannot thank her enough! ”

- Mrs Levell, Parent

“After a lengthy search in West Oxfordshire at numerous other private schools, I found none of them were a patch on St Michael's. They had huge grounds, impressive sporting and drama facilities, however the special family/nurturing feel we've always loved about St Michael's just wasn't there at all. I decided that if we couldn't find a school which measured up to St Michael's, then there was little point in moving, so we stopped the house move and are remaining where we are.”

- Mrs Falconer, Parent

“During my time at St Michaels, not only did I really enjoy it, I found that I wasn’t scared to move on and I felt prepared and ready for senior school. I now realise just how much the school gave me and at Senior School, I have found topics that I had already covered or had been hinted to in the lessons at St Michael’s. So I really thank the school and feel grateful for the preparation that I had and now use. ”

- Francesca Halling, Former Pupil

“As a former pupil, St. Michael's was the obvious choice. Their values and school ethos have remained the same and Sophia has become a confident, caring and hardworking individual. ”

- Mrs Lloyd, Former Parent

“Just wanted to say a big Thank You to all staff and teachers over the last few months. As a full time working Mum I don't know what I would have done without the structure provided each day.”

- Mrs Homer, Parent

“..thriving, secure, ‘family feel’ environment where children are positively nurtured as individuals and able to reach their own potential.”

- Mrs Foy, Parent

“St. Michael's is a wonderful school. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a safe haven for their child to grow, learn to be well rounded individuals with the love of God in their hearts and love for all human beings as well as develop academically putting them in a good position ready for the next level of education.”

- Mrs Balogun, Former Parent

“St. Michael's is a well organised school with a long track record of academic excellence. The small classes combined with the warmth and positivity of the staff make it a fantastic place to learn, grow and thrive. I loved my time at the school so for me the choice was simple. ”

- Mrs Grant, Parent and Former Pupil

“St. Michael's has been on our radar for the last few years following on from various positive conversations with different people about the school, your results and the general atmosphere and approach. With our daughter now turning two, we felt it was a good time to start enquiring and visiting the school. We're so glad we did!”
