Mulberry STEM Academy promotional films celebrate first one year milestone

Our amazing Mulberry STEM Academy is one year old. To celebrate this special anniversary and the remarkable achievements of our brilliant STEM scholars, our dedicated members of staff and all our supporters, the Mulberry Schools Trust put together two fantastic promotional films capturing our journey.

The Mulberry STEM Academy film captures the unique experiences and many practical and hands-on projects that have enhanced and deepened our STEM scholars understanding of topics within STEM subjects. Students from across our family of schools have completed an exciting suite of activities that included a Python Programming qualification, taking part in a project called ‘Greenpower’, participating in a design project that involved building a real electric car from scratch, as well as competing in a race with other schools across the UK and the world.

Similarly, the Greenpower film captures our STEM scholars engaging in some thrilling and incredible experiences, the highlight of which was winning ‘Best Newcomers’ in the 2021 International finals at the Goodwood race track!

The Mulberry Schools Trust wants to say a huge thank you to Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd for partnering with us and championing this very important work.

We hope you enjoy our films.

Mulberry STEM Academy: Applications for Cohort 2 Now Open

The Mulberry STEM Academy has been totally transformational for our STEM Scholars. Over the last year, young people now in Years 11 and 13 have been involved in a very unique experience, where they have taken part in many practical and hands-on projects that have enhanced and deepened their understanding of topics within STEM subjects.

Students across the Mulberry Schools Trust, have completed an exciting suite of activities that included a Python Programming qualification, taking part in a project called ‘Greenpower’, participating in a design project that involved building a real electric car from scratch, as well as competing in a race with other schools across the UK and the world.

Students also took part in inspirational careers conferences, where they met graduate employees in different engineering roles and received lots of useful advice on how they can be successful in STEM careers in the future.

Our Year 11 scholars also thoroughly enjoyed participating in the CREST Silver Award. CREST is a programme that inspires students to be scientists and engineers. Our Year 13 scholars are currently undertaking a Level 3 Extended Project Qualification (EPQ); a qualification highly regarded by universities.

We are now recruiting for the next cohort of students to join our Mulberry STEM Academy for 2022! We are excited to receive applications from Mulberry Schools Trust students in Year 10 and Year 12. Deadline for applications close on Monday 6th December 2021 and demand for places will be high. We encourage interested students to apply early to ensure the deadline is met.

This will be an amazing journey of discovery and learning, but don’t take our word for it…watch our amazing films below and decide for yourself!

Create your Future

On Tuesday 5th October,  10 of our Year 13 students attended an exciting event hosted by UCAS at the Excel Centre London called Create your Future. Our students visited over 50 universities stalls to find out about creative courses and career prospects.

Students took advantage of networking and engaging with the exhibitors, speaking to them about opportunities and a range of career pathways.

Some students commented after the event: 

“The event was very useful, and I learnt a lot I didn’t know before!”

“The trip to the UCAS creative industries exhibition was useful as it helped me gain extensive knowledge on creative subjects in various different universities and widened my interest in the creative industries”. I am looking forward to organising more trips I the future.”

 

Mulberry’s new website goes live!

 

Mulberry School for Girls launched its shiny new site on Friday 25th June.

We thikn the website is so much easier to use (and look at)!  The contemporary design features an improved navigation structure that helps us to share information with you more easily. It also works across all devices, so will look great on your desktop, mobile or tablet!

The website will continue to play an important role in keeping in touch with our parents/carers and we will regularly use it to update our photo and video galleries, provide information regarding our students’ learning and other news from the school.

Enjoy!
