Student Leadership Team

At St Michael's, we have Student Leadership Team consisting of: Head Boy, Head Girl, Deputy Head Boy, Deputy Head Girl, Community Ambassadors, Prom Ambassadors and Key Stage 3 Ambassadors.

The Student Leadership Team, made up of Year 11 students, represent the Academy in events, discuss with pupils what they want in the Academy and feed this information back to Mrs Keough in weekly meetings.

In response to student voice, the team have worked on setting up a 'Respectful Relationship Handbook'. You can view their work in this video.

Searchlight Ambassadors

As a community, we unite against bullying of any form by naming our Searchlight Ambassadors. We have had an overwhelming response from students with over 100 volunteering. A Searchlight council of 10 students has been selected from our volunteers who work with Mr Scott and the Year 11 Student Leaders to stand against bullying.

Year 7 Student Council

The Year 7 Student Council meet every Monday Week A during lunch time. Here students discuss any issues they have and ideas they have which can help the St Michael's community. The council have organised a bake sale for Cancer Research and created Christmas Cards for care homes.

Language Ambassadors

Our Y10 Language Ambassadors have been busy promoting languages in the Academy by delivering a whole school assembly to our Y7, 8 and 9. The students led events for European Day of Languages in September. At Halloween, they organised some activities to our Y7 and 8 in both French and Spanish.

The Big Big Project

The Big Big Project is led by engineering firm Jacobs, to help raise awareness of the STEM agenda and boost relationships between schools, pupils and their would-be employers.

Following its success last year, the Tees Valley Mayor and Combined Authority got involved to bring it to other schools via and broaden its scope.

This year six students from ten Tees Valley schools have been given a business mentor and challenged to find solutions to ‘level up’ their local area. These goals include increasing foot flow through town centres, better transport links and raising awareness of local cultural attractions.

Our 6 students have already had their first meeting and are excited and ready to get started with our business mentor from Enginuity.
