MPW London: Latest News

Politics trip to Westminster

At the great Westminster hall, which stands adjacent to the Houses of Parliament, crowds of students gathered with two common goals: to have their opinions challenged; and to challenge those of others.

Christmas Bake Sale

Year 10 organised a charity Bake Sale at Christmas to raise donations for three very worthy causes and to meet the requirements of the volunteering section of their Duke of Edinburgh Bronze Award, which they are all working towards.

2017 Prize Giving

Each December, MPW’s Prize Giving evening is looked forward to by tutors and students alike as a fitting climax to the autumn term and this year’s event was no exception.

Maths Challenge

The UKMT Senior Maths Challenge, organised by the University of Leeds, is a competition aimed at the best student mathematicians in the country and is designed to test powers of reasoning and logic in a series of 25 mind bending puzzles.

Carol Service 2017

As always, St Augustine’s Church was a very welcoming venue for our Carol Concert guests, with smiling students at the door greeting families and friends, twinkling warm fairy lights surrounding their seats and a large Christmas tree at the front.

Drama students perform extracts from Chekhov’s The Seagull

AS Drama students have been working to hone their acting skills this term and as part of their efforts, they performed extracts from Chekhov’s The Seagull for an audience in the theatre for the first time at the start of November. This gave the group an opportunity to put into practice the techniques they have been learning as well as becoming accustomed to being on stage and in front of an audience.

Theatre Trip: Jane Eyre

This production of Jane Eyre at the National Theatre in London has been highly successful and will soon be going on tour around the UK. It introduced me to a new kind of theatre and has inspired me to think outside the box when performing and staging plays.

One-Day Film School

On the second Friday of term, the college invited the Young Film Academy to spend a day with year 12. This organisation helps young film makers to achieve their dreams. The day was split into two parts: the morning was all about learning and practice; and the afternoon was when we really got to work.

South America

With the help of MPW's travel scholarship I was able to travel to South America, specifically the countries of Argentina, Bolivia, and Peru.

Cambodia

In between year 11 and 12, Elena travelled to Cambodia to volunteer as an English teacher in a school (and to raise funds to allow the school to remain open). She squeezed in some sightseeing as well, visiting the Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom temples.
