Connect: Issue #14 out now!
We are so excited to share the spring edition of Connect, the Mulberry Schools Trust newsletter, which is out now!
It features the amazing work taking place at Mulberry Wood Wharf Primary, as well as the incredible opportunities that have been presented to our schools. We’ve been privileged to receive invitations to two remarkable occasions with The Royal Family, showcasing the hard work and dedication of both our students and staff. Furthermore, we are proud to reveal the formal launch of the Mulberry Production Arts Academy as part of our Mulberry Changemakers programme (see page 4).
There have been many remarkable events in the past few months, such as the Mulberry Schools Trust Annual Education Lecture at the RSA and the launch of the Reconnect London report. Our students have had the chance to come together and learn through various activities, such as our Societies and the Trust’s GCSE Maths Revision Conference, creating a sense of community and collaboration.
We hope you enjoy reading about our schools and the opportunities they provide our students.
Mulberry STEM Academy Graduation!
Our Year 11 and 13 Mulberry STEM Academy class of 2023 had an amazing afternoon full of celebration and splendour at the Mulberry STEM Academy Graduation ceremony on Friday 3rd March. The ceremony took place at Mulberry UTC and was kindly organised by the Mulberry Schools Trust.
Our students were presented with their graduation certificates and goody bags by the Mercedes AMG Petronas F1 (MGP) team. Alongside the graduation award, our students won awards from many other categories. We’re extremely proud of Hibaaq and Ishraq for being only 2 out of more than 50 STEM graduates to receive the Mulberry STEM Academy. This award was given to a total of 5 STEM graduates for completing the STEM programme whilst demonstrating and leading with values such as passion, respect, innovation, determination and excellence. We’re also equally proud of Anas, Shah and Nabeel for receiving the Mulberry STEM Academy Excellence Awards. The excellence awards were awarded to a total of 10 students from across the Mulberry Trust for completing the STEM project to the highest standard and best of their abilities.
Our Year 13 STEM team (aptly named Team Storm after their internationally winning F24+ car), were awarded the Best Team Award – huge congratulations to the whole team! And of course, not forgetting our Year 11 STEM team (their car was named Starlight) who also graduated and received goody bags from MGP at the event – well done to all!
There were many familiar and important faces in attendance, including the CEO of Mulberry Schools Trust, Dr. Vanessa Ogden as well as SLT members from across the Mulberry Schools Trust. We would like to thank Ms El-Messoudi; Ms Gill (Head of Year 13); Mr Bisran (Green Power Lead); Mr Jessop (Deputy Headteacher); Mr Z. Chowdhury (Deputy Headteacher); and Mr Bhutta (Headteacher) for joining in the celebrations with our proud students. A special thank you goes to Dr. Mundy and Ms Montgomerie for organising such a beautiful and remarkable ceremony for all the STEM graduates. The most unforgettable and amazing part of the afternoon for our STEM Academy cohort was the attendance by the MGP accompanied by the Mercedes W14 F1 car, which took centre stage where our students received their graduation awards by MGP CPO Mr. Paul Mills. Our students were also treated to a personal congratulatory video message by none other than 7-time F1 Champion Sir Lewis Hamilton, and MGP CEO Toto Wolff!
Whilst we congratulate and bid farewell to our STEM Academy class of 2023, we must now look forward to the new year and getting excited to see what the new season has in store for us. Our Year 10 and Year 12 Mulberry STEM Academy team has been selected, and the Greenpower project of 2024 has officially commenced!
As 2023’s cohort hands over the torch, our new Greenpower 2024 team are excited for the upcoming challenges and races. Watch this space for the many upcoming activities and adventures this year’s STEM team will take part in.
We wish our STEM 2023 scholars all the very best of luck for the future and hope that they will stay in touch with us as part of the Mulberry STEM Academy Alumni.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS ~ THE International Champions!!!
Mulberry Stepney Green School won the Greenpower Goodwood International Final on Sunday 9th October 2022. The Yr13 STEM pupils performed phenomenally on the day, displaying great and an indominable spirit. All their hard work, dedication and tireless effort paid off in the end; racing 30 other schools from across the globe (the furthest school travelled from Brazil!) who also qualified for the final heat for a fantastic conclusion to the 2022 season. I think you will agree that this cohort got the win they deserved, and we couldn’t be prouder of them – the shining beacon of Mulberry Stepney Green!
A huge congratulations also to Mulberry Academy Shoreditch for achieving 2nd place!
