Cycling for STEM students

Year 12 STEM Academy students, along with Ms Montgomerie, Mr Farmer, Ms Gillott and Ms Hunnisett, have been working with Peter Hodgkinson, Head of Employee Engagement at Mercedes Grand Prix Ltd to build our F24 cars. The Year 12 Stem students completed their first Greenpower race on Sunday 8th May, winning the Best Kit Car award and coming 2nd and 3rd in their category.

Peter is taking part in a bicycle race from Land’s End to John O’Groats and has decided to raise money for Mulberry Schools Trust (and Alzheimers).

Here’s what Peter said about our students and the school.

“I have worked closely with the students and teachers supporting their Green power race program. It has been a wonderful, incredibly rewarding experience and one that I am proud to be a part of. The students embrace every opportunity that is given to them and are a credit to their school. To see their hard work begin to pay off through wins on the race track, and their collective joy at this achievement is magical and something that I definitely want to see continue for many years. To help add to this fund through the Mulberry Schools Trust is vital as far as I’m concerned.”

Every pound will make a difference.

Mulberry STEM Academy – Cohort 1 graduate in style!

On Friday 25th February, the first cohort of Mulberry STEM Academy scholars attended a special graduation ceremony to recognise and mark their participation in the STEM programme.

The Mulberry STEM Academy is a Saturday/holiday provision that provides a place of learning, inspiration and innovation for young people. It was set up in Autumn 2020 by the Mulberry Schools Trust in partnership with Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd – two high performing organisations in their respective fields of education and motorsports.

The graduation ceremony was held at Mulberry Academy Shoreditch where students were joined by parents, Headteachers from across our schools, Trustees and speakers to celebrate the students’ achievements. A special and very popular guest had arrived earlier in the day to take centre stage – the recently launched, spectacular Mercedes W13 car.

The Trust was very pleased to welcome Paul Mills, Chief People Officer who gave a moving speech and Russell Braithwaite, Chief Financial Officer at Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd who presented the students with their graduation certificates. Another special visitor also made an appearance on the day which was one of the highlights of the afternoon. Sir Lewis Hamilton, the seven-time F1 World Champion, sent a heartfelt video message congratulating the students on their achievements and he wished them the best for the future.

During the event, all students were presented with a special gift and a graduation certificate. A small group of students also received ‘PRIDE’ awards for best exemplifying Passion, Respect, Innovation, Determination and Excellence during their time on the programme. These important values are shared by both  Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd and the Mulberry Schools Trust and the awards were a great way to draw the ceremony to a close.

Following the ceremony, guests enjoyed some delicious food and took the opportunity to browse some amazing STEM displays showcasing science, computer science and maths at Mulberry Academy Shoreditch.

Everyone had a fantastic afternoon and our proud STEM scholars definitely had a day to remember!

A very big thank you to Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix Ltd for partnering with the Mulberry Schools Trust to give our young people such amazing opportunities.
