Sixth form is the climax of students’ time in school, however, MUTC is unlike any other post-16 provision because we provide a professional, adult learning environment. A sixth form education at MUTC is most certainly not like still being in school.
This is the time when students are truly focused on becoming work-ready young adults, highly attractive to potential employers. Our curriculum is built upon this premise.
Our blend of outstanding classroom teaching, on-the-job learning and character building enrichment programme ensures students leave us well prepared to embark on a successful future.
We are able to offer an unrivalled practical education thanks to:
During August 2019, Mulberry UTC’s first cohort of Year 13 students received their A Level and technical examination results. It was fantastic to see them secure some impressive destinations to study courses linked to the UTC’s specialisms,…

Our students have access to a range of information and guidance about university life. For example, Goldsmiths University recently delivered a workshop on student finance and how to apply for this. The workshop also involved information about budgeting at university and how to apply for scholarships and bursaries.
Students who are solely applying for apprenticeships are continuing to be supported through this process. They are applying for a range of apprenticeships including childcare, business, TV and film and youth work. They receive weekly sessions where they can ask questions and have their applications reviewed.
Sixth Form enrichment
The spring and summer terms have been filled with many exciting trips and activities that students have participated in.
Being part of Mulberry Schools Trust means that Mulberry UTC has access to gold-plated trust-wide activities. These include Mulberry Think-Ins, a thought leadership series for girls, trips to other schools to hear from influential leaders like Mark Carney, Governor of the Bank of England and Rushnara Ali MP, and a group of students from the UTC attended the Youth Power conference at Mulberry School for Girls.
The Tower Hamlets Young Mayor election took place in March and there was an excellent turnout from sixth form students. Assemblies were held to promote the election and so that students understand why voting and democracy is so important.
Our March open evening and careers event was very successful and popular. There were many students in attendance from across the borough and beyond.
Our students also attended a Model UN Conference in New York in May and had an amazing time visiting the fantastic sites and debating with students from across the globe on complex issues. One UTC student was a standout delegate and successfully helped to get a motion approved by their committee.
The sixth form celebrated National Apprenticeship Week during tutor time and assemblies. They watched interesting videos on different apprenticeships available and learnt how to secure apprenticeships.
Level 2 students who are leaving at the end of 2018/2019 are also being supported with applying for apprenticeships.
Six students attended a childcare workshop with Uptree run by LEYF. They will now be supported by these two organisations to apply for childcare apprenticeships.
Mulberry UTC sixth form students continue to be successful at seeking out work experience opportunities. Successes include a student completing a media and advertising placement with Kindred Agency during the Easter holidays and another completing a placement with Ofcom. Both students received excellent feedback from the employers, which helped to build their confidence. A Year 12 student has also successfully achieved a place on the WE Virgin Atlantic all expenses trip to India in the summer. She will be completing charity work with the organisation.
Sixth form students thoroughly enjoyed celebrating British Science Week and got involved with supporting all of the activities that were on offer and loved helping to look after the baby chicks.
There have been a number of assemblies delivered by individual students and tutor groups. They include an assembly on International Bee Day as this is a cause that a student was particularly passionate about. A tutor group delivered an assembly about the attacks in Sri Lanka and another covered the attacks in New Zealand. During these two assemblies, a minute silence was held to show respect for the victims of the attacks and students were encouraged to reflect on these devastating events.
