  • Artist's impression of The New 52-Week House at The Mulberry Bush


At the end of November 2016 we started to demolish the old cottages at the Mulberry Bush School to make way for our new 52-week house ‘The Burrow’ and accommodation for our volunteer students. The new building will be opened during our 70th year in 2018, but there’s a lot to be done before that, so you can see the progress here as we work towards completion of the new build:
