About Katharine Birbalsingh

Katharine Birbalsingh is the founder and headmistress of Michaela Community School and Sixth Form, a free school (charter school) established in 2014 in Wembley Park, London.

During her time at the University of Oxford, Katharine visited inner-city schools as part of a scheme the university runs to encourage state-school pupils to apply, and after graduation she decided to teach in state schools herself.

Katharine Birbalsingh writes regularly in the press and on Twitter about the education system. In 2017 she was included by Anthony Seldon in his list of the 20 most influential figures in British education. Under her leadership, Michaela has become one of the best-performing state schools in the UK, and she aims to replicate that success at Michaela6th.
