Mulberry UTC’s extended school day creates space for the development of broader horizons, self-confidence and transferable skills, including communication, negotiation and leadership.
All students regularly participate in employer-led challenge projects and present their work to parents at our termly exhibitions. Students complete work experience and industry or university placements relevant to their specialist courses. All students are encouraged to take part in independent study, extracurricular activities and to take up leadership opportunities such as participating in Model United Nations conferences.
Science Club, run by our science technician, is a weekly opportunity for our budding scientists in Years 10-13 to take part in experiments that challenge their scientific thinking beyond the curriculum. Science experiments to date have ranged from making lip balm to dissecting guinea pigs.
Regular seminar series in Humanities and Science provide the opportunity for students to engage with professionals working in relevant careers. As well as helping students to develop subject-specific expertise, this gives them increased confidence in their ability to engage with the working world.
