We are delighted to announce that our bid for a new secondary school in Stevenage will be submitted to the Department for Education this autumn.
We have chosen to establish Michaela in Stevenage to help meet the accelerating need for high-quality secondary school places in the growing town and also to increase parental choice and diversity of local secondary provision in the area.
If approved, Michaela Community School will be a non-denominational, non-fee paying, 11-19, mixed free school with a target opening date of 2023. It will follow the highly successful model established by Michaela in Wembley Park which opened in September 2014, has built a reputation as one of the most highly performing schools in the country and was graded ‘Outstanding’ in all areas by Ofsted in May 2017. Michaela will continue this tradition of academic excellence, high standards and exceptional outcomes for students in Stevenage by bringing the values and advantages of a private education to young people of all backgrounds.
We are seeking the views of prospective parents, students and stakeholders prior to submitting our application, giving them the opportunity to help shape the school so that it meets the needs and ambitions of the community it will serve.
Please complete the short form to help shape our vision for Michaela in Stevenage, especially if you currently have children in Year 2 or below (due to start secondary school from 2023).
Do you have friends with children starting secondary school in 2023 and beyond? Please let them know about our proposed new school!
Thank you for your support
