Mander Portman Woodward (MPW)

One of the UK’s leading names in fifth and sixth-form education. Established in 1973, our colleges in London, Birmingham and Cambridge offer a distinctive alternative to traditional schools, with bespoke solutions for A level, GCSE and International Foundation Year students. We strive to inspire and motivate our students to transform their academic aspirations into reality.


Each Mander Portman Woodward college offers a unique campus environment and student life, yet employs a common teaching methodology to help our students achieve high academic standards and gain entry to the world’s most prestigious universities.

“The quality of the pupils’ academic and other achievements is excellent.” ISI Report, February 2022

Here at MPW, we believe one size does not fit all. We take great care to understand our students’ needs and adapt our teaching style to help develop their potential both academically and personally. With tailored programmes and small class teaching (guarantee of fewer than 10 students in any class), students benefit from personal attention and personal tutoring.

 

Tutors are highly qualified to first degree or doctoral level and many are A level or GCSE examiners for the subjects that they teach. Students are taught in an exam-focused fashion and they are given course notes written by our tutors to help them better prepare for the final examinations.
