Extended project qualification

Extended project qualificationOur students in year 13 are encouraged to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) as part of their ongoing development and study. The EPQ is highly valued by universities and business as evidence of skills required for higher education or employment.

You will undertake the EPQ during the course of the year and will have the opportunity to choose your own topic, ideally linked to your other studies or future goals. You will then plan, research and develop your idea, supported by sessions which build on skills such as independent study and research, organisation, time management, and reflection.

EPQs over the past few years have included projects as diverse as drum performances, learning resources and meals for athletes. Taking part in the extended project will give you a sense of achievement, an opportunity for individualisation and a very valuable qualification for inclusion on your UCAS or job applications.
