The annual prize-giving is the highlight of the college calendar and this year the outstanding academic achievements of last year’s students were honoured in a short ceremony in which, perhaps this year more than any other, the exceptional were the enemy of the merely excellent. Many of the recipients were also CIFE award winners.
Our annual Carol Service at St Augustine's Church was a perfect way to get into the Christmas spirit.
Each year we celebrate the achievements of our most outstanding students in our prize-giving event. This years prize-giving was presided over by Dr George Harris whose work with young people in the West Midlands as a clinical psychologist has brought enormous benefit and acclaim from those he has worked with.

On Thursday May 28th 2015 MPW Birmingham held its annual Sports Dinner at the Blue Piano restaurant, Edgbaston. The event is always one of the highlights of the year for students who are part of the football squad and was thoroughly enjoyed by all again this year.
On Monday, 27th April 2015, all our A Level students attended a popular Business Studies revision workshop run by Tutor2u. It was held at the VUE cinema in London, where the workshops took place with enormous PowerPoint presentations displayed on the cinema screens. But there was no time to sit back and relax, as the students were given workbooks and the lecturers kept the delivery really interactive!!
