School Description

St Michael’s School is an independent, non-selective day and boarding school for boys and girls aged 3 to 18 years. It was founded as a senior school in 1922. The preparatory school opened in 1981 and the early years department started in 1994, on the main school site. The proprietor of the school is Broadway Education. The school is located on a large site in the village of Bryn on the outskirts of Llanelli. The majority of pupils come from within a 50-mile radius of the school. The school has two boarding houses, one of which is on-site and was newly opened in 2013. The older boarding house is about three miles from the school. The early years and pre-prep department moved to newly-furbished premises close to the main school in 2013. There are currently 387 pupils on roll. Of these, 111 are in the preparatory school and 276 are in the senior school. Eight pupils joined the school in January 2014 to follow a five term A level course. Across the school, there are a few more boys than girls. Thirty pupils are full boarders and four board part-time. Almost all boarders are from Year 10 and above. Overall, the number of pupils has dropped from 431 at the time of the last inspection. Around 40% of pupils are from a range of minority ethnic backgrounds. Almost 7% of pupils in the senior school speak English as an additional language. A very few pupils speak Welsh as their first language. The school identifies 11% of pupils as having special educational needs. In 2013, all pupils progressed to higher education courses at the end of Year 13. The school was last inspected in March 2008. The current headteacher took up post in September 2012.
