National Support School

Andy_Lole_2013_BWThe Mulberry Bush is designated a ‘National Support School’ by the National College of School Leadership. This designation is in recognition of our previous Ofsted inspection results, which over many years have judged the school in care standards and education provision to be outstanding.

We have a strong record in successfully providing school-to-school support to other schools that have needed our help, with this support having had a positive impact on pupil outcomes. In our capacity as a National Support School we are available to share our approach and expertise to provide additional leadership capability in schools which find themselves in challenging circumstances.

Our Head Teacher, Andy Lole, is a National Leader of Education, an Ofsted inspector and an accredited School Improvement Partner. We welcome contact and visits from schools wishing to engage in partnership work. Please contact alole@mulberrybush.org.uk for further details.
