Quotes from our families:


Couldn’t be more happy and relaxed about my choice as Michaela as first on my application list last year – can’t wait for my son to join his sister at Michaela next year! Michaela is UNIQUE we’re so lucky to have the Michaela team in Brent! Thank you to all the Michaela team.

My son was one of the students that started today at Michaela and the first thing he said when he got home was, Mum my school is epic, that’s what every parent wants to hear.

My daughter is happy at Michaela. She loves the teachers and also her manners are improving a lot. I can see the fruits of the school on her. Thank you to the all teachers. Well done.

My son is happy and well at Michaela, he loves the teachersthank you to all the teachers for the great work! Keep it up.

It’s nice to see all the children in the mornings eager to be in on timeIt’s great to see my children committed to improving themselves.

Thank you to all the Michaela Team for the great motivation and inspiration you are instilling in our children.

I want to thank you for all that you have done with the kids. My daughter is much more respectful to me and the way she talks to me is so polite. She loves the school and she has become so confident. She’s improving a lot.

Dad and I are so happy with our son. We feel he has changed in many ways. He is so kind and respectful. Gives no more back-chat and is a delight to have at home. He comes home talking about things he has learned at school and speaking French!!”
