The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

We are one of only a handful of schools who offer this opportunity in the summer of Year 12. Students may opt to take this extra award which is an AS level equivalent qualification to gain another grade or extra UCAS points that may be very useful in making applications to higher education. Many students simply take the qualification because it is an opportunity to undertake individual research into a topic of their choice, developing the skills that will be essential at university. Most projects culminate in a 5,000 word dissertation although there is scope to develop a performance or produce an artefact but all projects culminate in a presentation which is an excellent opportunity to share learning with others.
