OUTSTANDING ACHIEVEMENT FOR ALL

A message

from the CEO

I am once

again deeply

appreciative

to staff for

offering such

high quality

educational

experiences to

students within

our Trust - and to parents and

carers, for your support.

Our feature ‘Societies’ story is

just one example of this work. I

am also delighted that our work

extends beyond the Mulberry

Schools Trust and has had such

a positive impact on the schools

and students with which we

partner. Please read more about

this on pages 2-3.

Each school brings something

fresh and different to the table

in this issue. I particularly love

how Mulberry School for Girls

leads the way on empowering

our girls to become the leaders

of tomorrow. The unique

offer at Mulberry UTC, with

its industry partnerships,

sets it apart from other local

schools. The curriculum

offer at Mulberry Academy

Shoreditch is academically

rigorous with a generous

sprinkle of fun, creativity

and innovation. Mulberry

Stepney Green shows off its

amazing sporting prowess,

whilst equally showcasing

excellent partnership work with

institutions such as Central Saint

Martins, the world-renowned

arts and design college.

As we approach the end of

the Spring term, I wish you a

wonderful and restful break, a

happy Easter and a peaceful start

to the holy month of Ramadan.

Dr Vanessa Ogden

CEO

Inspirational Societies

give students a thirst

for lifelong learning

In June 2021, the Mulberry Schools Trust launched six

inspirational Societies led by Mulberry Academy Shoreditch.

The Societies sparked students’

imaginations, giving them an

exciting thirst for lifelong learning

and introduced them to a taste

of university life. Students from

Mulberry Academy Shoreditch,

Mulberry School for Girls

and Mulberry UTC have been

treated to an array of amazing

trips, visits and events.

Since its launch, the Societies have

immersed students in 69 exceptional

and high quality encounters including

trips to historic and iconic places

such as Hampton Court Palace and

Bletchley Park; talks and lectures

addressing the Transatlantic Slave

Trade, through to topics related to

Behavioural Economics; seminars

with local MPs, councillors and

senior industry figures…and so

much more - including a planned

trip to Athens in September 2022!

The programme continues to

inspire and present students with

opportunities to extend their

learning beyond the classroom and

excite their passion for university life.

Each encounter is carefully linked

to a curriculum strand and a top

university in London. It has been

simply amazing to see students

from across the Mulberry Schools

Trust engaging with each other,

learning together and being inspired

by what they have observed.

Students are able to witness for

themselves the brilliant facilities on

offer at some of our world-class

institutions and visualise themselves

on those campuses one day!

Greenpower project update

The second cohort of STEM scholars are already deeply

immersed in the Greenpower project. The project is

currently running with Year 12 students at Mulberry

Academy Shoreditch, Mulberry School for Girls and

Mulberry Stepney Green, who are dismantling last

year’s cars, and rebuilding them with improvements

including body work, wheels, driver position and careful

consideration to

aerodynamics and

efficiency. We are

racing in the heats for

Greenpower in May.

We are very grateful to

Peter Hodgkinson from

MGP who visited our

schools to advise us on

the project.

In the summer term,

Year 10 will be involved

in building the cars.

We will also be

hosting the primary

cars at Mulberry

Academy Shoreditch

in June.

NEWS IN BRIEF

Let EPQ commence…

On Saturday 12th March, a conference of over 40

Year 12 students in cohort 2 took place to launch the

Extended Project Qualification process. An EPQ is a

qualification that is worth half an A level. Students

select a topic that they are particularly interested in

beyond what they are taught at A level, then plan

and carry out an independent project resulting in a

5000 word dissertation.

Year 10 robotics launch

All 55 Year 10 STEM scholars joined together for a

robotics launch recently. Students worked in groups

and learnt how to programme and code our MST robots

so that they

talked, walked

and moved. In a

world of increased

automation, the

skills of coding,

programming and

robotics are highly

sought after by

employers in the

STEM field.

Maths students aim higher

This term we have run three Trust-wide

Maths conferences over a weekend.

Youth Conference reaches

20-year milestone

On Thursday 24th February, students from

Mulberry School for Girls led and hosted the

Mulberry Schools Trust’s 20th anniversary

Youth Conference.

The conferences were an opportunity for teachers

and students to collaborate together on key topics

on the GCSE and A level specifications. Over 150

students participated and benefited from high

quality teaching and revision from some of our

best Maths teachers.

Reconnect London brings

leaders together to tackle

disadvantage

Reconnect London is a collaborative network of London

school and system leaders which was founded in 2020

by Dr Vanessa Ogden, CEO of the Mulberry Schools Trust

and David Boyle, CEO of Dunraven Educational Trust in

south-west London. The network brings together school

leaders in a way that helps to increase collaboration and

cooperation between them.

The work of Reconnect London is also supported by third

sector organisations such as Teach First, the FEA and the

EEF. The aim is to support schools to share good practice,

as they seek to build innovative solutions to key challenges

that have emerged following the pandemic. There is a

particular focus on meeting the needs of disadvantaged

and vulnerable children, who have been disproportionately

impacted by Covid-19.

Headteachers from across the Mulberry Schools Trust are

actively involved with the network.

The Reconnect London annual conference will

take place on Friday 24th June 9.30am-1pm. Visit

www.reconnectlondon.org for more information.

This award-winning, annual conference brings Sixth

Form students together from across the Trust and

UK to explore issues of common concern. The skilled

student leadership committee at Mulberry School

for Girls set the conference theme as “Reimagining

Equalities in a Post-pandemic world”.

On the day, they had the privilege of hosting an

inspirational array of speakers including Mandu Reid

– the ground breaking first Black, female leader of a

UK political party; Justin Audibert – Creative Director

of the Unicorn Theatre, the ‘People’s Poet’ David

Neita and many more. Thirteen schools and over

250 students came together to share their unique

perspectives and to consider ways they could be

agents of change.

This powerful day was the perfect way to mark

20 years of youth activism that the conference

has supported.

ELTSH leading the way!

This term, 156 participants from across

East London have signed up to complete

Specialist and Leadership National

Professional Qualifications with the East

Girls’ futsal

tournament ends

in triumph

On Thursday 3rd March, our Year 7

and Year 8 girls took a trip to the

Copper Box Arena to compete in

the Borough Futsal competition.

There were 10 teams competing

from across Tower Hamlets. Both

teams played extremely well

throughout the competition and, as

always, showed determination and a

desire to never give up!

The teams went through to the

conference cup where the A team

beat London Enterprise Academy to

progress onto the finals and the B

team was unfortunately knocked out

on penalties to Wapping High. This

meant it was a Mulberry Stepney

Green vs Wapping High final. It was

a very intense game and Wapping

went 1-0 up very quickly.

However, Maryum managed to score

a great goal just before the final

whistle. Another round of penalties,

two misses on both sides (and

some great saves from Samina) and

the last penalty for both and then

Umayrah stepped up and scored an

amazing goal! The pressure was on

Wapping to score, but thankfully

they missed and Mulberry Stepney

Green took away the Conference

Cup! Hoorah for a tense but

impressive game of Futsal.

Sixth Form curriculum offers access to

world-leading arts institution

Mulberry Stepney Green Sixth Form is unique in being

able to offer a creative curriculum that allows students

to focus on the three specialist disciplines of fine art,

graphic communication and product design.

This is especially useful for those wishing to pursue a career in the creative

industries. Each area focusses on developing problem solving skills,

drawing skills and creating personal responses to a theme.

Last year, a group of students were accepted to Central Saint Martins,

University of the Arts London and its partner site, London College of

Communication to study Graphic Communication. This was especially

exciting due to the status of the university being ranked first in the world

for the arts.

We celebrated their work and the creative achievements of our current

A level cohort by holding our annual exhibition at the Arts Pavilion, with

a private viewing at the end of March. The exhibition will be open for

two weeks to

members of

the public and

is a fantastic

opportunity to

see the work

of our talented

students. The

work that will

be on view will

range across all

three disciplines

including

models,

animations and

paintings. We

look forward to

welcoming all to

the private view.
