The SMC Society exists to maintain links for those who attended or were involved with the original College prior to its closure in 1985. Here you can find out more details about the Society, when we meet, what is going on at the College, and even hear some of the sounds of the place.
If you were at St Michael's or just have a passing interest in the incredible history of this place, this site is for you.

Details of the 2014 Reunion: New Date" 20th Sept" Tim Coles, Secretary, writes: Some of you might have heard that we are no longer able to hold our Annual Dinner at Cadmore Lodge as it has been sold. Having looked at other options locally, your committee has decided to make a return to the Fountain Inn, Oldwood Common. However, the date of the Reunion has had to brought forward by a week, so this year’s reunion is Saturday, September 20th. My sincere apologies to anyone who had been making plans for the following weekend. The Society Magazine will be published in August along with a booking form for the Reunion / Dinner. If anyone has any articles / photos for inclusion, please could these be emailed to me by the end of July at the latest. We are also planning to hold the society’s golf match some time before the reunion, perhaps in August – if you are interested in playing please let me know so we can include you when details are sent out. Many thanks Kind regards Tim Coles Secretary SMCS

"The unique quality of St. Michael’s persists. ……………………
It would be
impossible for any boy not to be influenced by the morning and evening thanks to his Creator which he hears so perfectly sung in this tall chapel among the orchards of Worcestershire."
