One of the first tasks of the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) is to secure a suitable site for our school and a provisional opening date will be agreed with the DfE once a site been secured.
This new secondary school will follow the highly successful model established by Michaela in Wembley Park which opened in September 2014 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.
Michaela plans to open with an intake of 180 Year 7 students, growing organically with the same intake each year. At full capacity, Michaela will be a secondary school with 1,260 pupils, including the Sixth Form.
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.
Our proposal follows extensive engagement with the local authority and we will continue to seek the views of prospective parents, students and stakeholders, giving them the opportunity to help shape the school so that it meets the needs and ambitions of the community it will serve.
