Pupil Voice and Leadership
We pride ourselves on our provision for pupil voice. Many of our programmes target confidence and leadership, to ensure that in later life our students are prepared, resilient and adaptable. Below, you can read about some of our voice and leadership opportunities given to students.
Mulberry Youth Conference
Our award-winning annual conference brings Sixth Form students together from a range of backgrounds to explore issues of common concern, including equality, social justice and cultural identity, showing that young people have the power to make a difference in their communities and on the world stage. It was launched in 2002 by a group of students concerned about growing divisions around the world following the September 11th attacks. The conference has since gained a reputation for its challenging discussion and powerful speakers.
Our most recent conference (Feb 2020) saw 200 students from across the country converge to reflect on the past decade, and look forward to the 2020s. Ironically, we were unable to hold our 2021 conference! However, 2022 will be our 20th conference, and we are very much looking forward to hosting a celebratory conference to commemorate.
If you were involved in a past Youth Conference and would like to be involved in our 20th Anniversary celebrations, please contact Ollie Creed on firstname.lastname@example.org.
