Hoe Valley School have embraced the recently launched Classrooms to Carehomes project being promoted by the Times Educational Supplement (TES) which has seen the entirety of the Year 7 students writing Christmas letters to care home residents, as well as holding an inter-form hamper making competition! The School delivered the hampers and Christmas letters to nearby Whiteley Village where they met with staff and residents, socially distanced of course, to present them with the treats.
Michaela Community School is a non-denominational, non-fee paying, 11-18, mixed free school which opened in Wembley Park in September 2014.
Michaela brings the values and advantages of a private education to young people of all backgrounds by providing a highly academic curriculum and strong discipline. Traditional subjects are given additional lesson time through the longer school day to give pupils a better grounding for further study. In 2017, Michaela was judged Outstanding by Ofsted.
The school admits 120 Year 7 pupils each year. At full capacity, Michaela will be a small secondary school with 840 pupils, including the Sixth Form.
