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.”

 

Life-changing work experience at Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix HQ

On Tuesday 10th August, Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd released a video on social media capturing the life-changing work experience opportunity attended by our amazing #MulberrySTEM Academy students in July.

The Year 12 students from Mulberry School for Girls and Mulberry Academy Shoreditch, completed a week long residential placement at the headquarters of Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd in Brackley.

The students were selected following a rigorous interview process and all had an interest in studying engineering at university. During the week they were immersed in working life, from 9.00am-5.00pm, in full team uniform. They worked across five different departments including aerodynamics, test and develop, as well as design.

They also had the opportunity to professionally network with employees and senior staff.

This was a phenomenal and once in a lifetime opportunity and we are very grateful to MGP for making this happen.

All the students had such an incredible time and we are so grateful for the beautiful memory.

Year 12 Performing Arts

Year 12 Performing Arts students have been studying classical theatre through the lens of Medea and Othello. After practically exploring performance style through both plays, students created improvisations in response to the stimulus question: How do we become who we are? Their anchor character was a 17 year old girl and their narrative development explored fractured time and space. The binary oppositions of reality vs fantasy set the stage for this young woman to discover her father in this space of virtual reality. Kacey Thurbon, Year 13 MUTC Production student who is soon to progress to a degree course at RADA, composed and delivered the lighting for
