A group of students have 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 in a wide range of fascinating projects covering social sciences, computer science, science and English.
The final part of the project was the EPQ Presentation Evening where friends and family were invited to the school to listen to students’ presentations. The evening was a great success and guests thoroughly enjoyed listening to the presentations and participating in Q&A sessions with the students.
