2018 CIFE Awards at the House of Lords
On Wednesday 18th April, John Southworth, Principal, and I attended the prestigious annual CIFE Awards ceremony at the House of Lords to celebrate once again the incredible academic success of MPW students.
This marvellous event hosted by Lord Lexden OBE, the President of CIFE, saw seven of the twenty prizes available awarded to MPW, which we were of course absolutely delighted about. Our students have worked exceptionally hard over the last year and one of the most rewarding things about working in education is to see that work pay off. It was a privilege to be able to celebrate with our high achievers.
With great pride, the students and their families were presented these awards for academic excellence whilst indulging a delicious afternoon tea. Lord Lexden entertained us with his usual eloquent and enigmatic self and Sally Powell, Principal of Collingham, was tasked with detailing the academic achievements of the prize winners. There were certainly a number of impressive students present.
