MPW London students have scored a hat-trick of prestigious CIFE awards, in recognition of their academic success in science, arts and languages.

History comes to life at GCSE

GCSE History students visited the Imperial War Museum in Duxford. The exhibits matched perfectly with the curriculum they are studying this academic year. Sean said; “The most amazing thing with the paratroopers that I saw in the Land Warfare Hall was the incredible leap in technology, even from the year 2000 to today. Everything including the design of the helmets has improved. The weaponry has moved to carbines and full auto guns. I would like more time to look at the planes there was almost too much to take in on one visit. It gives a whole new perspective to history and makes it more personal - like going back in time.”

A level Business Strong Foundations Workshop

Jim Riley, with his popular voice in all Tutor2u YouTube videos, showed the students how to write effective judgements and evaluations. All the examples given to the students were about real-life businesses such as Greggs, Cost Less, Apple, Tesco and Poundland. The students also had the chance to revise most of the business theories they had learnt in their course such as Porter’s Five Forces, Ansoff Matrix, Economies of Scale and Porter’s Generic Strategies.

An exciting lecture by famous psychologist and author, Prof Bruce Hood, based on his book “The Self Illusion: Why there is no ‘you’ inside your head”. 11 students joined our Principal Markus Bernhardt to attend this lecture in London, at 111 Buckingham Palace Road, the home of the Telegraph newsroom.

National Senior Mathematics Challenge

In the Senior Mathematics Challenge students are asked to pool all the mathematical knowledge they have acquired and combine it in original and often surprising ways. 90 students took the challenge. Seven of them achieved the gold award, 23 students received the silver award and 22 achieved bronze. All seven gold award students qualified for the Senior Kangaroo Challenge, and two of them would have qualified for the British Mathematics Olympiad had they been British nationals.

GCSE Residential Trip to London

After visiting wonderful settings such as the Hogwarts Castle, Forbidden Forest and the Hogwarts Express Train, we set off for an American Diner in Covent Garden for refreshments followed by an exhilarating performance of Thriller, the musical that charts the music and life of pop icon, Michael Jackson.

Geography Field Trip: Osmington Bay Dorset

This dynamic coastal environment provided the students with plentiful resources from which to collect data. The weather can only be described as ‘dismal with heavy rain and cold winds’, making the data collection very challenging. However, the group persevered and stayed positive, working together to collect a range of data including beach profiles, measuring longshore drift, conducting environmental quality surveys, and assessing coastal management strategies. Despite the poor conditions the students had a successful day of data collection with a substantial range of primary data for their independent investigations.

Being a seventeen year old in England is completely different to being a teenager in Kazakhstan. In England, you learn that the opportunities available to people are endless. I heard a lot of stories about volunteering abroad, something which is especially popular in UK.
