The Mulberry Schools Trust (MST) will be opening an outstanding 6 form entry 11 – 19 co- educational comprehensive school on the London Dock residential complex, replicating the outstanding provision in Mulberry Academy Shoreditch and Mulberry School for Girls.
This mixed school will share the features that have led to the long established girls’ school becoming an exceptionally successful provider with a secure reputation both locally, nationally and internationally – as seen in the links made in 2015 with the then First Lady of the United States of America, Michelle Obama and her initiative Let Girls Learn (now known as the Global Girls’ Alliance). The same features frame the offer of Mulberry Academy Shoreditch, judged to be outstanding in 2012. Both schools in the Mulberry family provide outstanding achievement for all, in an environment that is inclusive, caring and ambitious with high standards in everything they do.
The new school will be a flagship school, delivered in partnership with the Local Authority and the DfE, creating another truly exceptional school in Tower Hamlets with first class facilities to rival anything that can be found elsewhere in London. Its ethos will promote community cohesion, inclusion and a rich social mix in which all children can thrive, regardless of background.
The Trust’s Commitment
The Mulberry Schools Trust is committed to partnership with Tower Hamlets Local Authority, the council, local schools and families as well as other community stakeholders. The Trust has a track record of stepping up to support others locally if required to do so. It walks the talk of partnership.
