Mander Portman Woodward - London
Founded in London in 1973 by three Cambridge University graduates, the MPW Group is one of the best known and well respected independent college brands in the UK. MPW’s reputation is based on its student-centred, hands-on and exam-focused programmes, its broad and highly flexible curriculum, small class sizes, strong pastoral support and renowned university placement assistance.
Welcoming students of many different types, from Year 10 upwards, who are seeking a socially relaxed yet academically disciplined college to help them achieve their goals. MPW London is distinctive in many ways, not least small classes of no more than eight students, a focus on exam preparation, but also in outstanding personal support for students through a well developed Director of Studies system.
Every teacher has a clear objective of helping students to succeed. All are very well qualified and often are public examiners or textbook authors. Each aims to follow the MPW mantra of going the extra mile to help students. Test and homework results are available throughout a student’s course on the parent intranet, and as well as regular parent evenings there are detailed written reports on each subject five times per year.
