Director of Extended Learning: Ms Jo Latham
Students’ experiences at Mulberry are greatly enriched through the global dimension of their education. Through a wide range of innovative activities we prepare students to thrive in our diverse, rapidly changing and interdependent world.
Mulberry is the lead school for Global Classrooms in the UK. We offer the MUN programme to students from inner London state schools and international schools. Students play the roles of ambassadors of the UN’s member states in simulations of UN committees. We hold two conferences a year; one at the school and one at the International Maritime Organisation, the headquarters of the United Nations in Britain.
Human Rights Ambassadors
As part of our global education, young women from Mulberry embarked on a journey in 2012 to explore the turbulent history of Bosnia. They documented this journey through a film, Justice in Action, which explores reconciliation in the lives of the survivors. Through this film they aim to demonstrate that through the power of storytelling we can make a change. Since its release, Mulberry has launched a Human Rights Ambassadors programme, through which the film’s message continues to be disseminated.
Founded in 2002, the Mulberry Youth Conference draws together three hundred sixth form students from around Britain to build bridges as they explore issues of common concern. Always inspirational, the conference blends politics, arts and idealism to create an unforgettable day. This year we were delighted to hold it in partnership with National Theatre Learning and Langley Park School for Boys. The conference explored the play Behind the Beautiful Forevers. Curated and hosted by students from both schools, the conference explored the themes of the play, global inequality, social justice, aspiration and education, as well as the power of the arts to make positive social change.
