Support and Progress

Each student is assigned to a Personal Tutor, whose role is to supervise students’ academic progress, university applications and general welfare. Personal Tutors keep in frequent contact with subject tutors and parents and are able to devote much of their time to helping and encouraging the students under their care. Regular, individual meetings are held to discuss progress in class, homework, test results, UCAS applications and reports.

Parents are encouraged to communicate with Personal Tutors on a regular basis and informal meetings between parents, students and tutors provide a constructive forum for assessing progress. Written reports from the subject tutors and a covering report from the Personal Tutor are sent to parents twice in the Autumn term and once in the Spring and Summer terms.

The friendly and supportive Personal Tutor system at MPW Cambridge really is a key feature of the college. The comments of students in the Case Histories section of this website give both specific examples and a wider insight into the success of this system.
