St Michael's School
St Michael’s was founded by local residents in the Chorley area more than 50 years ago. The founder members wanted a church school for local children and set about raising the funds to build a purpose-built school in the heart of Chorley. Today, St Michael’s still prides itself on the Christian ethos that underpins everything we do.
