Mulberry to open brand new primary school in Wood Wharf, Isle of Dogs
Following a rigorous selection process, the Mulberry Schools Trust is delighted to have been appointed by the Department for Education to sponsor a new primary school in the Wood Wharf development area in Canary Wharf.
Mulberry Wood Wharf Primary will open in September 2022 in a brand new building on the Isle of Dogs. It will be two form entry and open with 60 pupils in Reception. Our vision is to create an outstanding, fully inclusive primary school that ensures all children’s needs are met. The school will deliver excellent, first class teaching and make a vibrant and meaningful contribution to the local community and beyond. We are privileged to have this opportunity and we are really excited. We believe primary education shapes a child’s adult life and we know that an outstanding education at this phase is transformative. Mulberry Wood Wharf Primary will join our four secondary schools in our family, allowing for quality transition work and great professional development for us all. What will be really exciting is our curriculum planning over the next three years as the school grows. Our curriculum will be irresistible. It will be ambitious, broad and balanced. Children will follow the national curriculum with some subjects taught discretely, with themes and innovative projects running throughout the year. We look forward to sharing further news with you as our plans develop.
