I have now heard from Barry Smith, Assistant Head Teacher at Michaela Academy Free School:
We will be opening our doors to our first intake of 120 Year 7 pupils on Monday, 15th September. I was on site on Thursday - the place is a hive of activity! The pace of progress is phenomenal. Having spoken at length with the site manager I came away very confident indeed. I'll be back again on site next week and of course there's so much else going on to make sure everything comes together for Monday 15th. Exciting times. Thanks for your continued interest Martin.
