Michaela Sixth Form is a brand new sixth form opening in 2019. Michaela Community School (our parent school) opened in September 2014 and has already established a reputation as one of the most highly performing schools in the country.
Michaela Sixth Form will continue the school’s tradition of academic excellence, high standards and exceptional outcomes for students.
All of our sixth form students will receive a superb education, taught by subject experts with outstanding academic pedigrees.
In addition to a rigorous A Level programme, students will receive outstanding extra-curricular guidance and opportunities, with a view to preparing them to enter the best universities in the world, from the Russell Group including Oxford and Cambridge in the UK, to Harvard, Yale, MIT and other Ivy League universities in the US.
We aim to be the highest achieving sixth form in London, serving communities across the capital including in Brent, Barnet, Camden, Hampstead, Highgate, Harrow, Ealing, Acton, Westminster and beyond.
Katharine Birbalsingh is the founder and headmistress of Michaela Community School and Sixth Form, a free school (charter school) established in 2014 in Wembley Park, London.
During her time at the University of Oxford, Katharine Birbalsingh had visited inner-city schools as part of a scheme the university runs to encourage state-school pupils to apply, and after graduation she decided to teach in state schools herself.
Katharine Birbalsingh hosts a blog, To Miss with Love, where she writes about the education system. In 2017 she was included by Anthony Seldon in his list of the 20 most influential figures in British education. At Michaela, Katharine will bring her unique knowledge and expertise to Further Education, with the aim of founding London’s best sixth form.
“The high standards at Michaela, the strong subject knowledge of the teachers, and the personal responsibility of the pupils will be an excellent preparation for study at leading universities.”
