Facilities at MPW Cambridge
MPW Cambridge is situated across two sites a short walk from each other in the heart of Cambridge.
Our main site, located on Brookside, is a four-storey Victorian building. It houses bright and airy teaching rooms that accommodate class sizes ranging from one to nine students. Specialist teaching rooms include three science laboratories and an art room. The majority of classrooms have access to audio-visual facilities and interactive whiteboards, and all of them are equipped for screen-based learning. There is also Wi-Fi access throughout the building.
The Brookside building also accommodates two supervised study rooms containing reference textbooks and 15 computer workstations, an ICT suite and an Internet library that provide a further 16 computer workstations, plus a large exam room. MPW Cambridge is a registered centre for all awarding bodies and all public examinations are sat on the premises. There is also a student common room at Brookside that is equipped with a further three computers for web browsing and has a cafe that serves drinks and homemade hot and cold food.
Our sister site is located on Panton Street, which is adjacent to Brookside. Like our main site, it is a Victorian building spanning across four floors. It houses some of our largest teaching rooms and a further student common room.
The Leys School, opposite our main site, provides the college with sports facilities.
