Sixth Form students are going on a trip to see ‘The Funeral Director’ at Southwark Playhouse on Wednesday 7th November.
The play explores themes of community, religion, gender and LGBT rights. Students have been selected due to their contribution to either Drama or the Feminist Society at Mulberry.
Students will attend the launch of this year's Debate Mate programme on 1st November. Over the course of the year they will enjoy training in debate skills by expert university student volunteers and then take part in a nationwide inter-school debate competition.
A conference for schools exploring gender equality
The conference is designed in collaboration with students from the Mulberry Schools Trust. Our conference brings young people together from across the country for the day to imagine what a gender equal society might look like. As schools, we recognise that young people have the power to change the world. Yet in the world beyond school, not everyone is given an equal chance to fulfil their potential. Campaigns like #MeToo, and ‘He for She’ shine a light on continuing inequalities for women, but men too are also effected. They are often denied the opportunity to show vulnerability – and suicide rates amongst men are also a concern.
The aims of the conference are:
Jude Kelly, Former Artistic Director of the South Bank Centre, Edwina Dunn, Founder of the Female Lead, Delia Barker, Programmes Director, Round House, Shobana Jeyasingh, Choreographer & Founder of Shobana Jeyasingh Dance Company, David Lan, Former Artistic Director at the Young Vic, Baroness Shami Chakrabati, Jade Anouka, Actor, Dave Neita, Lawyer & Poet, Carrie Cracknell, Theatre Director, and many other leading artists.
The conference is being live streamed in two parts:
10:30 – 12:00
including LIVE panel discussion exploring gender inequality in dance at 10:45
14:00 – 17:00
including LIVE panel discussion exploring gender and Shakespeare at 14:45

Dr Vanessa Ogden, CEO of the Mulberry Schools Trust and the Mulberry Schools Foundation said:
“At this conference, we are bringing together girls and boys, women and men to consider issues of gender equality. A prosperous and harmonious society is a society where inequality and injustice have no place. The conference provides a platform for young people to have their voices heard. Schools are the crucibles of civilisation and it is our responsibility to ensure that pupils leave us equipped to create a fairer future for all”.

‘I didn’t say we could change the world. I just want us to stand up for ourselves.’
Putting on an-all female production of Henry V was never going to be easy, but for Sayara and her team of East London teenagers, it’s about to get a lot harder.
When a letter drops through the front door and their community comes under threat, this group of young women must learn what leadership really means, and what you need to sacrifice to stand up for what you believe in.

The annual Mulberry Arts Project is a well-established, annual cross curricular arts event that has been a part of our curriculum for fourteen years. This exciting grand-scale event is a collaboration between students, teachers and artists in residence. The Year 8 performances on 10th July are inspired by the stories of sportswomen and the Year 9 performances on 12th July are inspired by the stories of rebellious women from history. As in previous years the emphasis of this inclusive project allows all students to stretch their creative skills within the arts and each tutor group to have a sense of ownership and responsibility for their performance.
