A group of students from Year 10 to 13 have successfully completed their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ), which is worth half an A-Level grade. The EPQ plays an increasingly important part in our students’ journey beyond school; enabling the development of sophisticated skills including project management, research and enquiry, and presentation to an audience. EPQ students choose their own topic to study and this resulted is a wide range of fascinating projects covering social sciences, computer science, maths and performing arts.
The final stage of the EPQ was the Presentation Evening where friends and family were invited to the school to listen to students present the findings of their project. The evening was a great success and guests thoroughly enjoyed listening to the presentations and participating in Q&A sessions with the students.
The EPQ continues to be popular with Eaton Bank Academy students and from September will become an option available for all students in the Sixth Form. Studying for the EPQ will provide an opportunity for students to extend their studies beyond the A-level syllabus and prepare for university or their future career, as well as earning extra UCAS points.
