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.


"How to achieve your goal as an A-Level student": a talk by Paula Radcliffe

As marathon world record holder for an astonishing ten years running, Paula Radcliffe knows a lot about aiming high. Alongside her sporting commitments, she also passed her A levels and went on to achieve a first-class honours degree from Loughborough University. We were honoured that she was kind enough to share some of her experiences and speak to our A level students about the determination, motivation and organisation that have enabled her to succeed and how they can achieve their goals in lives with these qualities.


The Summer Ball 2013

On the evening of 5th July, we held our annual Summer Ball. The event had been hotly anticipated for a number of months and had been preceded by a frantic flurry of dress buying, tuxedo hiring and hair styling! The student body had decided to hold the ball at Edgbaston Cricket Ground; a decision that proved to be an excellent one, due to the spacious function room we had been allocated and the excellent hospitality available.


International Student Farewell

After the final exams had finished, it came to the time of year where our A2 international students were preparing to return home for the summer. They will return to the UK in September where each of them will begin life at University. To celebrate their time spent together at MPW, they attended an evening out in Edgbaston to reminisce about their time in Birmingham.


Comic Relief

The second project organised by our Envision group this academic year was the Comic Relief fundraising day. After much debate, it was decided that a fancy dress theme would be the best way of getting the maximum number of people involved, so on red nose day, students and staff alike donned their costumes and headed into college.


Model United Nations 2013

On Friday, 22nd March, a group of 10 students from MPW Birmingham joined over 600 delegates to take part in Haileybury Model United Nations (MUN), the largest MUN gathering in the UK. The delegates and around 100 accompanying staff came from 40 schools in seven countries from four continents to participate, and included delegations from Saudi Arabia, Italy and USA.


Climbing to New Heights!

In January, as part our enrichment programme, a group of students made the short journey over to our local climbing centre to try their hand at rock climbing. Only a few of the students had tried it before, so there was a degree of excitement, anticipation and probably fear amongst them! After the obligatory safety talk (where we were reassured that we were safe as long as we follow the rules) we had our harnesses put on us and were let loose on the various climbing walls.


GCSE trip to Grafham Water

The week before half term we all went to Grafham Water for a week. We were accompanied by Lisa and Malcolm for the week and were also joined by Nick and Markus. A fun time was had by all!
