Within the school we have a Make A Difference (MAD) group who work alongside the Chaplaincy to serve others both in and around school. From litter-picking around the local streets to organising charity events, the MAD group works to make a difference in our community.
Along with our Eco Club and Farm Club, we are a school who is committed to making the environment around us a better place to live in.
Each year students make the effort to reach out to our local community, particularly around Christmas time where MAD, the Music Department, and kitchen staff come together to hold a Christmas Community Lunch for the elderly residents of Crosby, along with carol concerts at local Nursing homes and shopping centres.

Charities We Support
At St Michael’s we support a number of local and national charities throughout the year. In recent years’ students have raised money through a variety of different methods including – Whole school charity days – cake sales, wristband sales, sports challenges, staff events, music concerts, sponsored events, online fundraising events. Etc.
Our students are very thoughtful of others and raise an amazing amount of money each year, charities supported in recent years include:
Children in Need, Comic Relief, Macmillan, Save the Children, Christian Aid, Young Minds, Toilet Twinning, Support for a link school in Uganda, Breast Cancer charity, Show Racism The Red Card, The British Legion, Alzheimer's Society, and more.
Many students take it upon themselves to organise events or raise money outside of the formally organised charity events in school and many students help and support local groups and organisations with volunteering.
Our Sixth Form students have raised £1000 in a year through their work on the Arch Bishop of York award. This is broken down into a £300 contribution for Toilet Twinning, £150 contribution for a local food bank, £50 for the eco club and £150 for the farm and then some money going into Sixth Form for an event.
The school’s Student Leadership team have been created to give students the opportunity to use Courageous advocacy in making changes in our school environment based on the thoughts and needs of the students themselves. These students were voted into position by their peers and represent their year group at meetings held with the schools senior leadership and Head teacher.
