Activities & Sports
At MPW, we organise social and physical activities all year round providing our students with 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 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.

Mind FULL or MINDFUL?
At MPW Cambridge, we recognise that students should be given an opportunity to experience a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Mindfulness and yoga sessions became an obvious choice – after all, how many of us can say that they live fully and clearly in the moment, with great awareness, balance and peace of mind?
