MPW Cambridge is an academically non-selective college. We aim to provide courses that fit a student’s requirements, not the other way round.

In order to assess whether we can offer courses that are suitable to a student’s needs, and to gauge whether a student forms a good ‘fit’ with MPW, we will only offer a place after a student has attended an interview at the college. Interviews take place with the Principal, Deputy Principal, Assistant Principal or a Director of Studies. They include a tour of the college and generally last 1.5 hours.

Prior to the interview stage, there are plenty of opportunities to find out more about the college and what we offer. Prospective students, parents or guardians can contact the college by telephone (01223 350158) or email ( to request a prospectus or arrange an informal, introductory meeting. You can also download or request a prospectus from this website.

During the summer vacation the college is open every weekday for visits. We also hold an Open Day each term to give prospective students, parents or guardians the opportunity to look round the college and meet students and staff.
