Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

The Extended Project Qualification offers students the opportunity to embark on a largely self-directed and self-motivated project and is equivalent to half an A level.  The qualification is available as an option through the Sixth Form ‘Beyond the Curriculum’ programme and allows students to develop independent learning skills that support students as they make the move to University and employment.
As part of the qualification, students choose a topic or research question that they wish to research in great depth.  Each project is unique to each student and allows students to demonstrate learning beyond the A Level curriculum and stand out from others when applying for university.
