Case study: Michaela Community School

Pupils at Michaela Community School study a knowledge-based curriculum.
Step inside Michaela, a free school that does things differently.

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.
