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.
Ancient History comes to MPW
They came, they saw, and they, erm, aim to conquer. Taking liberties with Julius Caesar’s famous quote, we can announce that GCSE Ancient History has arrived in all its pomp and glory (is that ‘gory’?) at MPW Cambridge.
The Big MPW Derby: Cambridge vs Birmingham
We hadn’t lost to our sister college in a few years and to be the squad that allowed that run to end was humiliating. On Tuesday, November 19th, came our chance to set the record straight.
£2500 raised over the past six years for Children in Need. That’s a lot of carrots
Not much fun being a rabbit, just in case you hadn’t noticed. Spend most of our time either being shot at and then stuck in a stew or what not. Or being told how truly ‘cute’ and ‘cuddly’ we are. Even got this in French a couple of Fridays ago. Wouldn’t look so ‘adorable’ if I stuck my carrot in your eye, would I ‘cheri’??
MPW Sports Ambassador Paula Radcliffe MBE comes to Cambridge
On Thursday 10th October MPW Sports Ambassador Paula Radcliffe MBE delivered a presentation to the GCSE and A-level students here at Cambridge.
An ACE Day of Learning and Treasure Hunting
All AS students attended a day of ACE sessions on Tuesday 17th September. ACE stands for Academic and Career Enrichment and is a programme intended to get students thinking about their future.
