Our top performing student of 2016 was:

Emily

Symonds , Emily

Emily joined MPW Cambridge for a one-year GCSE course, achieving A*AAAAAAC. She says:

Being taught IB in international schools abroad my whole life, I was completely unfamiliar with the GCSE curriculum. When my family moved to the UK for good, no schools in Cambridge were willing to offer one-year GCSE courses. I've always been driven in terms of working hard at school, however I was completely terrified of taking an intensive one-year GCSE course because I didn't know what to expect. My family and I were thrilled after finding out about MPW. The teachers are absolutely amazing here as they give so much individual support - something that I have never really had in my previous schools. Small class sizes and all the individual attention has definitely been beneficial to a large extent. MPW has definitely met my expectations. I've met amazing friends and great teachers – my GCSE year turned out to be a great experience.
