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.
Celebrating the Year of the Dog
Preparation began in January for this year’s Chinese New Year event including Chinese food, a tea ceremony and dressing up teachers in traditional clothes. The students worked hard to plan the festivities and the celebration proved to be very popular.
Christmas Bake Sale
Year 10 organised a charity Bake Sale at Christmas to raise donations for three very worthy causes and to meet the requirements of the volunteering section of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, which they are all working towards.
The UKMT Senior Maths Challenge, organised by the University of Leeds, is a competition aimed at the best student mathematicians in the country and is designed to test powers of reasoning and logic in a series of 25 mind bending puzzles.
Carol Service 2017
As always, St Augustine’s Church was a very welcoming venue for our Carol Concert guests, with smiling students at the door greeting families and friends, twinkling warm fairy lights surrounding their seats and a large Christmas tree at the front.

PHSE on Screen Dependency

Drama students perform extracts from Chekhov’s The Seagull
AS Drama students have been working to hone their acting skills this term and as part of their efforts, they performed extracts from Chekhov’s The Seagull for an audience in the theatre for the first time at the start of November. This gave the group an opportunity to put into practice the techniques they have been learning as well as becoming accustomed to being on stage and in front of an audience.
Principal's Lecture: Antibiotic Apocalypse
A level students were lucky to attend one of the Principal’s Lectures on antibiotics, presented by Dr Victoria Allen, on Monday 9th October.
One-Day Film School
On the second Friday of term, the college invited the Young Film Academy to spend a day with year 12. This organisation helps young film makers to achieve their dreams. The day was split into two parts: the morning was all about learning and practice; and the afternoon was when we really got to work.
