“Confidence, creativity, leadership and a love of learning for young women”
We believe that everything we do as a school can be distilled into these areas of pupils’ education and development. Mulberry School for Girls aims to provide an education which promotes particular capacities and attributes.
We want our pupils to be:
Confident: resilient, secure and mature young women, able to meet the demands and challenges of adulthood in the realms of working life, family life and community life. Our young women will be respectful and caring of others, with the confidence to be compassionate and to help others. Our young women will know how to keep themselves and their families safe and healthy.
Creativity: critically aware, imaginative and adaptable young women, able to be open to global change and willing to work with others to achieve a better future. Our young women will be able to work in teams and to problem solve, with the ability to be inventive and enterprising. Our young women will know how to look after their socio-economic welfare through employment and global citizenship.
Leadership: know that leadership take many forms, some of which are collective and some of which require a personal commitment. The confidence of our young women will be supported through the development of their capacity to lead. Our young women will make a positive contribution to society and their local community through their willingness to take a stand and their ability to acknowledge others.
Love of Learning: enjoy learning and develop a desire to continue learning in adult life. Our young women will have the courage to persevere in their learning, developing a sense of achievement when tasks are successfully completed. Our young women will have a range of lifelong learning skills upon which they can draw when learning is challenging. They will know where and how to seek help.
The school aims to ensure that pupils leave Mulberry able to be secure, healthy, economically independent adults who enjoy learning and who can make a personal contribution to society. We have determined at Mulberry School for Girls that, for our young women, the key areas of personal development which will help them to do this are the acquisition of confidence, the capacity to be creative and to lead others and to have a love of learning.
Mulberry’s community believes that this will require of the school a wider role than just 11 – 19 learning between the hours of 8am and 6pm, 39 weeks of the year. Mulberry is committed to social justice and urban regeneration. This commitment is reflected in our aims.
