Sport

Despite our limited outside facilties, we offer a wide variety of sports at St. Michael's and are successful in range of competitions. Specialist sports coaches teach each class once every week as well as running a popular before school sports childcare club called Early Sports and two after school extra-curricular clubs each week which cover a wide range of different sports and are offered to all classes on a rota. We also have netball and rounders clubs which run on Thursdays after school in the terms when there is sufficient daylight, and a dance club. School takes part in all the competitions run by the Heywood Schools Partnership throughout the year with teams that are chosen for their abilities either through open try-outs or from observations during lessons by teachers and coaches, usually choosing from the oldest applicable year group first for each competition.

A huge congratulations to our Cross Country team. You all ran superbly well and did St Michael's proud with having children placed in the top 3 in all four races. Well done to you all.

Well done to our Football teams.

Our Year 5/6 boys' team and our Year 3/4 boys' team both finished runners up in their league competition.

Our Year 5/6 girls' team won their competition without conceding a single goal. #invincibles!

Well done to our Year 3 football team. They represented our school extremely well and had the opportunity in playing at The Cliff.

Some of our Year 6s have been trained to become Sports Leaders. They flew through the course and gained valuable strategies and games to introduce to our school.
