Activities & Sports
At MPW, we organise social and physical activities all year round providing our students a fun and relaxed environment to help them stay healthy, interact with peers who share common interests, enhance leadership skills and prepare for the future.
We believe studies are just part of the student experience; we encourage our students to take part in the social events ranging from raising awareness through a charity campaign, joining a debating session or simply stretching their legs and arms at the local climbing centre.
Students who love sport will have plenty of opportunity to meet up with likeminded friends – or make new ones through a large variety of sports clubs here at MPW.
Anna Farquharson has just completed a one-year A level course in English Literature at MPW Birmingham and will be studying English Literature and Philosophy at University next year. Anna
is already an accomplished poet; here we share just a few of our favourite pieces that Anna has written:
English Creative Writing
For their GCSE examination, one of the writing tasks that students are often asked to do is to recount and reflect on an experience for example Write about a time when you, or someone you know, needed help.
As part of their preparation, the Year 11 GCSE group were given an introduction and reflection on an experience which had happened to their English teacher and had to write, in thirty minutes, an account of the event itself.
Interview with Bridget Hutchings
Bridget joined MPW in September 2012 as our Director of Teaching and Learning and has already become a firm favourite with students and staff alike. I managed to get hold of Bridget for five minutes just before the end of term to find out a little more about her and how her first year at the college had gone.
