Mulberry Schools Foundation is a charity set up in 2019 by Mulberry Schools Trust to support, develop and champion young people and their families in the Trust’s schools and partner schools and its local and global community.
How we impact
We remove barriers to learning, achievement and social engagement by supporting, developing and championing young people and their families in Mulberry Schools Trust’s schools, partner schools and associated local and global communities.
We create opportunity for these young people to the range of educational opportunities, commonly available to those from more privileged backgrounds, that build creativity, confidence, discernment, leadership, self-determination, global awareness and a belief that all opportunities and challenges are open.
We give voice to children, young people and other communities less often heard and provide platforms for leadership through those voices.
We innovate for change to enhance equality and social justice and open doors for young people and communities experiencing disadvantage, so building their capacity to make a difference to their world.
We sustain impact by celebrating and sharing outcomes so extending best practice and making a national and international contribution to educational improvement, policy and knowledge.
The Foundation is building on Mulberry Schools Trust’s exceptional track record of creating opportunities that build leadership, give voice, enhance equality and social justice and develop young people’s capacity to make a difference to their world. We are able to extend the Trust’s vision and ambition to young people and communities facing similar barriers nationally and internationally. We draw on and extend Mulberry Schools Trust’s extensive and diverse network of educationalists, thinkers and innovators. We are also in the unique position of being able to learn from and use the voices of Mulberry Schools Trust’s students, alumni and community to ensure the relevance and impact of our work.
