Global Classrooms London
Model United Nations
Mulberry School for Girls is the lead school for Global Classrooms in the UK and is proud to be the largest secondary Model United Nations programme in the UK. Students play the role of ambassadors in simulations of UN Committees. These professional two-day student conferences have a warm, supportive atmosphere aim to promote cooperation, leadership, public speaking skills and confident global citizenship. The programme is open to students aged thirteen to eighteen and welcomes between three hundred and four hundred students to each conference.
Our conferences are open to state-funded, non-selective schools from London and international schools from around the world. Students must attend as part of a school delegation and cannot register individually.
The MUN committees are student led and adopt the Global Classrooms approach, in which delegates research and write country position papers on the assigned topic and, through discussion and negotiation, seek to build a consensus towards a resolution during the conference. Prior to the conference, delegations and supporting staff from participating schools are provided with comprehensive research and preparatory resources including committee background guides, position paper templates, multimedia resources and other research links through our website. For supporting staff, our conferences offer creative and powerful learning for your students, as well as important opportunities to network with colleagues in our partner schools. Our respected programme also attracts schools from around the world. This provides young people with the opportunity to network with peers from other backgrounds and cultures.
