A message from the Headteacher, Dr Vanessa Ogden

Mulberry School for Girls is a high achieving, over-subscribed and very successful girls’ comprehensive school in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets for pupils aged 11 to 18. Our aim is to develop ‘Confidence, Creativity, Leadership and a Love of Learning’ with our young women as we believe this enables our pupils to lead successful, happy and fulfilled lives, making a contribution to their own community and wider society.

Mulberry is a Specialist Arts School and makes the most of its opportunities to develop artistic and creative learning in many different ways. We have an annual drama and arts festival at a theatre space of acclaim, such as the Southwark Playhouse, with Mulberry Theatre Company performing original work with our resident playwright and theatre directors. In 2009, Mulberry won a Fringe First Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for The Unravelling. 

Mulberry provides many learning programmes as part of the formal curriculum and the wider curriculum. We hold a youth conference and women’s conference annually; in 2012, our women’s conference was delivered in partnership with the Women of the World Festival at Southbank. and created a film which explores the nature of justice and shares the stories of the survivors. Justice in Action premiered at the Barbican on 26th September 2012.

We hope you will come and visit
