Are you ready to question everything?

This is Katharine Birbalsingh’s challenge to anyone applying to work at Michaela Community School. There are many things schools do because it’s how it always been done rather than because it’s what’s best. The Michaela Way challenges these assumptions and, as Katharine said today, ‘is causing a revolution’. For children to leave school without the literacy and numeracy to succeed in life means we are failing them. Katharine argues a revolution is needed to turn this around – our children deserve better. I can’t argue with that.
