Mulberry School for Girls is delighted to announce that we have been graded Outstanding by Ofsted following an inspection in July 2013. Achievement of pupils, quality of teaching, behaviour and safety of pupils, and leadership and management were all given the highest possible rating of ‘1’.

The report praised the “exceptional leadership” of the head teacher, Dr. Vanessa Ogden, and the “constantly improving quality of education” which can be seen at Mulberry. Students make “rapid progress” in lessons and a high proportion are “exceeding” expectations. Teaching has improved from good to outstanding since the previous inspection in 2010.

The inspectors described Mulberry pupils as “highly ambitious, confident and principled” young women who are “well informed about employment and cultural opportunities” thanks to links with business leaders, artists and international organisations. The report also notes the “exceptional” social, moral, cultural and spiritual development of pupils and the “extensive” support on offer for parents.
