Brick Lane 1978: The Turning Point

In January we hosted the ‘Brick Lane 1978: The Turning Point’, an exhibition of photography from East End local, Paul Trevor, celebrating the area’s 1978 activists. 

Parents/carers, students, staff and our Mulberry community were invited to come and explore photos which document such an important moment in Tower Hamlets’ history.  It run in the Mulberry Bigland Green Centre on the following days/times. Parul Husain and Sabina Khan introduced the project.

The exhibition was a culmination of a major heritage project exhibited at Four Corners, June – September 2022, with Swadhinata Trust, in collaboration with Paul Trevor, original activists and local volunteers.

Students from Year 8 upwards were given the chance to visit the exhibition and Year 9 used this as inspiration for their Arts curriculum project on protest & activism.

If you would like to learn more, here are a series of short films which share the stories of activists who were part of the fight for social justice in 1970.

Mulberry Academy Shoreditch recognised for their commitment to action and improvement in relation to race equality.

Mulberry Academy Shoreditch has been recognised nationally for their commitment to improving race equality and prioritising an inclusive culture where staff, students, parents and partners of all ethnicities are equally valued, by being awarded the gold level RACE Chartermark. We are the first school in London to achieve the gold level and we are incredibly proud of this momentous accolade.

Developed by SSAT (the  Schools,  Students and Teachers network) and  Fig  Tree  International, the Race and Conscious Equality (RACE) Charter Mark is for schools, academies and colleges,  both in  the state and private sectors, in the  UK  who wish to demonstrate their commitment to action and improvement in relation to race equality in all aspects of their work as educators, employers and community leaders.

To achieve the charter mark we completed a comprehensive package of training for governors, senior leaders and middle leaders, and submitted an evaluation detailing their work towards equality so far and an action plan pledging their commitment to ongoing development in this area.

Angelina Idun, Director of Education, SSAT said:

“I am delighted that Mulberry Academy Shoreditch has been awarded the gold RACE Charter mark. Their application and action plan clearly show a positive ethos and culture which champions and strives for conscious equality and inclusivity throughout the school community. We look forward to continuing to work with the school to see their strategic vision fully realised”

Ann Palmer, CEO, Fig Tree International said:

“I am absolutely delighted that Mulberry Academy Shoreditch is receiving this recognition.  This recognises their determination to make a difference, not only in their own school but also in the local community.  Mulberry Academy Shoreditch has joined a great group of schools and colleges that are part of the RACE Charter Mark community. We applaud them for their work and aspirations to build a more inclusive society.”

Ruth Holden, Executive Headteacher, Mulberry Academy Shoreditch said:

“I am absolutely thrilled that we have achieved the gold level RACE Chartermark and become the first school in London to do so. This was a huge piece of work that was carried out over 18 months led by a group of incredible and dedicated members of staff. We also received tremendous support from our students, parents and Governors who I would like to thank for their insightful contributions. The Chartermark recognises one of the school’s many strengths and its determination to combat discrimination. We work tirelessly every day to promote tolerance and to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion at every opportunity”.

WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS ~ THE International Champions!!!

Mulberry Stepney Green School won the Greenpower Goodwood International Final on Sunday 9th October 2022. The Yr13 STEM pupils performed phenomenally on the day, displaying great and an indominable spirit. All their hard work, dedication and tireless effort paid off in the end; racing 30 other schools from across the globe (the furthest school travelled from Brazil!) who also qualified for the final heat for a fantastic conclusion to the 2022 season. I think you will agree that this cohort got the win they deserved, and we couldn’t be prouder of them – the shining beacon of Mulberry Stepney Green! 

A huge congratulations also to Mulberry Academy Shoreditch for achieving 2nd place!
