Product description


This book should be banned. If a parent of a teenager gets hold of it, they'll ask why their son or daughter's school can't be as good as Michaela. And the uncomfortable truth is, it can. Every school can. --Toby Young, Director, New Schools Network

Michaela has only been around for a couple of years, but already it has changed the way many people think about education. This book explains how, and shows the incredible things that can be achieved by a small group of people with vision, energy and passion. --Daisy Christodoulou, Head of Assessment, Ark Schools

This book explains how this iconoclastic Free School became unashamedly knowledge focused. You meet the pupils - they are happy, well behaved and incredibly knowledgeable. This school is driving social mobility every day. --Nick Gibb, Minister for School Standards

From the Back Cover

“This book lucidly explains the philosophy behind Michaela’s approach, and its arguments are incontrovertible. Michaela is the model free school that all our schools should imitate.” Roger Scruton

“Michaela is an inspiration – a revolution in education – giving kids the knowledge, the grammar and the confidence to achieve anything in their lives.” Boris Johnson

“Katharine Birbalsingh and her team are inspirational teachers from whom we all have much to learn. This book is their testament and my gospel.” Michael Gove

“An engrossing read – a totally different school. The ideas are pragmatic and philosophical, familiar and challenging – always passionately argued.” Doug Lemov

“Michaela is a trailblazer. This book, like the school itself, should catalyse debate across the UK about why and how we choose to teach our children.” Tom Bennett

In Battle Hymn of the Tiger Teachers, more than 20 Michaela teachers describe what makes Michaela unique.

– How do didactic teaching, drill and memorisation boost motivation and academic achievement?

– How do we get pupils to be considerate, kind and caring to each other?

– How do we ensure new teachers are just as respected as veteran teachers and so stay in the profession?

This book addresses these questions and more, cutting to the core of how we educate our children and how we see the world.

Battle Hymn of the Tiger Teachers is a call to action for everyone in education.
