On Wednesday 27th February students studying towards A level Religious Studies attended an Ethics Conference in Cambridge. The sessions covered some of the topics discussed at A level, including Kantian Ethics, Utilitarianism and Abortion. It was a great opportunity to look at the latest research and statistics and the views of Dr. Peter Vardy and Charlotte Vardy were certainly thought provoking.
Julian started with a brief introduction into the role of the Government in the United Kingdom and how parliament operates before asking for questions from the floor. The students were initially a little reticent, but once education and Michael Gove’s plans for the future were discussed the debate gained considerably in momentum.
It’s not every day that a world record holder visits our college but when Paula Radcliffe came to us during February there was obvious excitement. Before we go onto what Paula presented to students let’s just remind ourselves about Paula’s career achievements and gain further insight into her life. Paula’s achievements include European Championships gold medallist in the 10,000m, World Championships gold medallist in the marathon, twice winner of the world cross country championships, winner of the BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year award and she is the current world record holder for the Marathon.
On Monday 16 December we hosted our annual Celebration of Achievement. Well done to our prize winners and thank you to everyone that attended.

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.

Once again, December heralded our annual prize giving event at the college. As always with prize giving, it is a fantastic opportunity to meet students after their first term at university and see the progress they have made. There is no doubt that the students always find their first term challenging, but always comment on how their A level studies have helped them to prepare for this. It is also a great chance to formally share the achievements of the students with parents and friends as well as colleagues.
MPW students and staff have raised funds for a number of good causes during the Autumn Term. The Christmas Carol Service included a collection that raised a total of over £620 for the excellent Kids Company, a charity founded by Camila Batmanghelidjh in 1996 to provide practical, emotional and educational support to vulnerable inner-city children.
