Blogs about Michaela by people who’ve visited the school

Few months ago I had cheekily tweeted and asked if I could visit Michaela and Katharine Birbalsingh had kindly said yes. But it was not to be as there was a tube strike on the day I was to visit. I am still planning a visit, maybe in the Spring term. Till I do I thought I’d collect blogs by others who have.

Update: I have since then visited the school & my blog is included in the list below.

If I’ve missed any please let me know and I’ll add them. They don’t have to be written in favour of Michaela but they do need to have been written by someone who has visited the school and then formed an opinion.
