MPW victory in the CIFE football tournament!

Being invited to take part in the first CIFE football tournament which was held at England’s national training facility at St George’s during the Easter break was a unique experience which was possibly the highlight of the year for MPW football. Winning it was the icing on the cake!

Football match reports 2014-15

Winners of the Autumn Term league and just pipped to the post in the Spring Term, here are the most recent match reports from the MPW first team.

Duke of Edinburgh Award: Fundraising for Project Harar

As part of their volunteering requirements for the Duke of Edinburgh award, our Year 10s organised a very successful Bake Sale to raise funds for Project Harar.

Senior Team Mathematics Challenge

Four of our top mathematicians represented MPW in the West London heat of the Senior Team Mathematics Challenge, organised by the Further Mathematics Support Programme in partnership with the UK Mathematics Trust.

Rugby Union: 2013/14 Season Reports

MPW’s rugby team is now in its seventh season. Interest in the sport is extremely high at the college with many of the boys having played the game to a high standard at their previous schools, some to county and International level. We also have many boys who take up the sport successfully for the first time at MPW and represent the1st XV. In our early years MPW was one of the leading teams in the London 6th Form College League having won it for the last two years that it ran.

Sport 2013/2014: Football

Football is MPW’s longest-standing team sport, with a fixture list dating back to 1998 that has featured matches against opposition such as Trinity School, Reigate Grammar, Colfe’s and St Dunstan’s. These schools remain regular fixtures, with the exception of Trinity, which has recently been replaced by Royal Russell. Football at MPW includes regular training sessions during the first two terms of the academic year, raising fitness, skills and discipline. It provides an opportunity for participation in a team sport that is similar to the model available at university.

2014 Summer Art Exhibition

Towards the end of the summer term, the MPW Art Exhibition private view took place and this year there was, as usual, a fantastic range of work to see. All areas of the art department were on display and these included textiles, ceramics and ambitiously staged photography, along with a comprehensive range of painting and drawing.

Duke of Edinburgh Silver Award Expedition

The MPW Silver assessment expedition was a fun and adventurous journey following the South Downs Link from Guildford to Brighton. For the purpose of the assessment, our team of five cyclists had to demonstrate self-sufficiency by riding at least five hours a day for three days, applying our camp craft training to put up tents and cook food and also by carrying all own gear. Using our orienteering skills and maps, we also had to find our own way through many different villages and unsigned roads. Luckily, the only problems we had were riding in wet weather on the last day and a tyre puncture on our second day.
