The story of Michaela Community School
New Zealand born London headteacher Katharine Birbalsingh founded Michaela Community School. It is often referred to as Britain's strictest school. Children have to attend a seven day boot camp before starting at Michaela to learn the school's strict rules, which include no talking in the corridors and demerit points given for forgetting a pen, or slouching. Katharine tells Heather du Plessis-Allen what is behind the school's philosophy. Katharine is presenting at researchED in Auckland on Saturday 2 June.
