Michaela offers a unique learning environment which will propel students to the best universities. Michaela will be different to many other sixth forms in that the majority of independent study will often take place off-site. While on the premises, students will be in lessons. In their free periods, they will undertake directed university preparation activities.
Michaela Sixth Form students will be expected to lead the school in similar ways to staff. Like teachers, they will move quietly and independently to their lessons.
Students will have lunch off-site or in their own café in the brand new Sixth Form Common Room, which is currently being developed. The Common Room will have a café that will sell panini, cakes, baguettes and coffee. One side of the Common Room will be equipped with for private use by the Sixth Formers. The other side will have sofas and tables for quiet study. There will be a section of the library dedicated to further reading in all A Level subjects, university prospectuses and course guides, as well as a range of general interest texts.
