MPW

Introduction

MPW was established in 1973 with a mission to work with students to turn their academic aspirations into reality. Since its foundation, MPW has enjoyed a reputation for excellence in providing bespoke fifth and sixth form education. We have three colleges strategically located in London, Birmingham and Cambridge with close proximity to prestigious university campuses. Each of the colleges has its own unique facilities and resources providing a friendly and supportive learning environment for the students, yet employs a common teaching methodology to assist students in achieving academic success and gaining entry to the world’s most prestigious universities.

When it comes to a good education, one size does not necessarily fit all. As a leading sixth form college in the UK, we offer a wide range of A Level and GCSE courses giving students the flexibility to take subjects that most interest them. All A Level and GCSE courses are taught in small groups with an absolute guarantee of fewer than 10 students in each class; ensuring students benefit from personal attention and tailored support alongside high quality teaching with a clear focus on learning outcomes.

In 2014 we successfully introduced the University of London International Foundation Programme at our MPW London college. We are excited to announce that, following this success, the IFP will now also be taught at MPW Cambridge. MPW is one of only three institutions in the UK approved to teach this foundation programme with academic direction by the University of London. In addition, we also offer the NCUK International Foundation Year at our Birmingham campus to give students the skills they need to succeed at university.

At MPW we take great care to help our students fulfil their academic and personal potential. We pride ourselves in providing excellent pastoral support where each student is assigned to a Director of Studies whose role is to supervise students’ general welfare and guide students to make informed choices about their education progression.

Over the years, MPW has helped numerous former students achieve excellent results and successfully progress to elite universities including Cambridge and Oxford University.
