From being a Black Country Challenge school in 2009, with attainment at just 13% A*-C including English and Maths, results at St Michael’s had increased to 55% by 2013 and the school was recognised as being 34th in the country in the Government’s most improved schools list. In 2014, the SSAT awarded St Michael’s the Educational Outcomes Award for being in the top 20% of schools nationally for outstanding continuous improvement; we were rated Good by Ofsted and, the following year, the Anglican and Methodist Schools’ inspectors judged St Michael’s to be Outstanding. In November 2017, the school was once again judged to be Good by Ofsted, with Pupils’ Personal Development and Welfare rated as Outstanding.
