We are delighted to be able to announce the publication of our first Ofsted report.
Mulberry UTC is a new school that opened in September 2017. Ofsted commended the work of the school in a number of key areas, resulting in a strong ‘good’ judgement across the board. The inspectors visited the school in March, shortly before we were required to close the building.
“Pupils particularly enjoy their learning in the work-related courses. Pupils get many opportunities to experience the world of work in these areas. The majority progress to further education, apprenticeships or paid work in these fields.” Ofsted
The inspectors were particularly impressed by the motivation of our students, their excellent behaviour and their positive attitudes to learning. Our students were excellent ambassadors for the school and we are extremely proud of how well they conducted themselves during the course of the inspection.
“Leaders provide a range of specialist subjects that engage pupils and prepare them well for future employment.” Ofsted
Sue Barrow, Chair of the Local Governing Body said:
“I would like to thank Dr Vincent and all her staff for their exceptional commitment, enthusiasm and determination in ensuring that Mulberry UTC offers the best provision across all our specialisms. Our students for their hard work and their belief that, as a newly set up institution, we really would provide them with the best possible education and our parents/carers for their continuing support.
“I would also like to thank our brilliant supporters and governors: Goldsmiths, University of London, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, the British Film Institute, the National Theatre and Barts Health NHS Trust. They have all worked with us to make the learning at Mulberry UTC exciting and industry-focused, ensuring our students are work ready when they move into the world of employment.”
We hope that you will enjoy reading the report. It is a testament to the hard work of all of our staff, students and governors, and the fantastic support we receive from the local community, our students’ families and our employer and university partners.
“Pupils in the sixth form achieve particularly strongly in the specialist courses, for example health and social care.” Ofsted
“Pupils are motivated and have good attitudes to their learning. They behave well in their lessons and are quick to get on with the tasks set by teachers.” Ofsted
