2014 CIFE Prizes at the House of Lords

2014 CIFE Prizes at the House of Lords

On Wednesday 19th March, students from MPW were once again privileged to receive prizes awarded by The Council for Independent Education in the august surroundings of The House of Lords.

The prizes were awarded this year by Lord Lexden, Honorary President of CIFE. His predecessor, Baroness Perry, gave her name to a special prize, the Baroness Perry Award, which went to Alexia Wight for her outstanding achievements in all of her subjects. Alexia is now reading Physics at Imperial College. Van Nguyen, who has been offered a place to read Management at The London School of Economics, was awarded the MPW College Prize for her academic achievements and her positive contribution to the life of the college. Cordelia Sands, now a Biology undergraduate at Oxford University, received the Science Prize, while Jonathan Spelman, who is having a gap year before applying to a top university, was awarded the Humanities Prize. The Humanities and English Prize went to Fahrid Chishty, who is currently enjoying his first year on his Politics, Philosophy and Law course at King’s College, London. Last but not least, Peter Akindele, who is now at The African College of Leadership, was very deserving of the GCSE Prize.

It was an absolute pleasure to be in the company of our current and former students, their families and friends and to see that their endeavours were recognized. We are very proud of them all.
