2015 CIFE Prizes at the House of Lords

2015 CIFE Prizes at the House of Lords

On Wednesday 18th March 2015, students from MPW were once again privileged to receive prizes awarded by The Council for Independent Education at the Prize Winners Ceremony at The House of Lords. The prizes were awarded by Lord Lexden OBE, President of CIFE. His predecessor, Baroness Perry, was also present to give the Baroness Perry Award. 

This was a very special year for MPW London where the college won nine of the nineteen prizes being presented on the day! Two of the other prizes were awarded to MPW Birmingham students, so eleven prizes in all to MPW students; a remarkable achievement.

Tuan Truong Van Nguyen was awarded the Baroness Perry Award having achieved A*A*AA on an 18-month course and is now reading Management at the London School of Economics. Mathilda Wood won the CIFE Award for GCSE performance. Alice Carter-Pegg won one of the CIFE Value Added awards; having attended our short retake course she improved her BDD grades to A*AA; she is now studying at the University of East Anglia. Qingyan Zhang won a CIFE Maths award having achieved A*A*A*A; she is now reading Economics at Cambridge. Isabella Martinez-Sistac Orozco won a CIFE award for Humanities and English having achieved A*A*A* and an A at AS level in a single year. She is now studying Law at the London school of Economics. Zoe Tan won a CIFE award for Social Sciences having achieved A*A*AA; she is now studying Law at the London School of Economics. Nicholas Rothwell and Katherine Sloane both won CIFE awards for Humanities and English. Nicholas is now studying at Edinburgh University and Katherine at the University of Leeds. The college prize was awarded to Tommy Moore for his services to MPW.

It was an absolute pleasure to be in the company of our current and former students, their families and friends and to see that their endeavours were recognized. We are very proud of them and congratulate them all on their fantastic achievements and wish them all well in their future studies.
