St. George's Day - April 2015
On St. George's Day the whole school acted out the story of St. George, who valiantly rescued the fair princess and defeated the dragon.

Girls Football Team 2013

Girls Football Team – Tournament Runners-Up! - 2013

We took three teams to the Bishop’s Stortford Area Schools Football Tournament at Manorfields, where 48 teams were competing.
Our two boys teams did quite well and had a mixture of wins, draws and losses in the group stages; just missing out on qualifying for the quarter finals.

Our Girls Team performed superbly, winning all their group games and the semi-final. The Final against St Andrew’s ended 1-1 after extra time. Unfortunately we lost out in the dreaded penalty shoot-out! It was a cruel way to miss out on the trophy, having played so well during the afternoon. To their credit, the girls were very sporting and whilst disappointed were still excited about winning six matches in a row. Congratulations to all involved and thanks to all the supporters. The Brave Girls Squad: Rosie, India, Scarlet, Hannah, Eve, Lucy, Eloise, Katie, Alice

School Netball Team 2012

Netball Team - Local Champions and County East Runners Up - March 2012

Huge congratulations to our netball team for winning the Bishops’ Stortford area High Fives Tournament last Friday. We came top of our group and then defeated St Andrew’s in the semi-final and Northgate 3-1 in the final.

Being champions meant that the team represented our area in the Sports partnership Finals Event at Wodson Park in Ware on Tuesday. Competing against a whole host of other schools, who were all winners of their local areas, St Michael’s again made it to the final but were unfortunately beaten 2-5 by Brooklands School. However, second in the east of Hertfordshire is a fantastic achievement and we are very proud of the team photographed below:
