Michaela plans to open in Stevenage. Now that the school has been approved to the pre-opening phase by the Department for Education, one of the first tasks of the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) is to secure a suitable site for our school.

Negotiations to purchase a site for the new 11-19 secondary school are on-going and we will be able to announce the location, along with a provisional opening date, as soon as this is confirmed by the Department for Education. The site has been identified and early feasibility and survey works have commenced. We are working towards the terms of a lease being agreed with Hertfordshire County Council.
