Michaela Community School in Brent, London is one of the most talked-about schools in the UK. In this follow-up to the best-selling book Battle Hymn Of The Tiger Teachers, their teachers further explain how their relentlessly high expectations are helping young people to get great results and be successful.Since opening in 2014, Michaela Community School has blazed a trail and defied many of the received notions about what works best in schools.
