Consultation requirements when opening a new school

Part of the process of opening a new school is a *consultation. This is a Department for Education requirement under Section 10 of the Academies Act 2010.  The consultation enables local residents, staff and governors from local schools, parents, councillors, community groups and any other interested parties to share their views.

The consultation period for Mulberry Academy London Dock will run from Monday 21st November to Friday 16th December 2022.  This is an important step in our journey to opening in September 2023. We are looking forward to listening to your views in order to provide you with the best school possible.

We are keen to ensure that we deliver a school that meets local needs and requirements and welcome your views.  To share these with us please complete our online questionnaire by clicking on the link below.  If you would like a hard copy of the questionnaire, please email

*Please note this consultation is not related to any building or planning applications surrounding the new school; it is solely to consult on whether appropriate persons support the Trust to enter into a Funding Agreement with the Secretary of State for Education to run Mulberry Academy London Dock.
