Preparing our students for the next step in their lives is our fundamental obligation at St Michael’s.

At St Michael’s, academic success is measured by the ability of our students to enter their next phase of learning in their preferred field, armed with confidence in their background, skills and ability to continue as confident learners. We are very proud of our students’ academic performance and congratulate all Year 12 students on their personal achievements.
