Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)
The Extended Project Qualification is undertaken towards the end of Year 12 and during Year 13. The EPQ leads to the equivalent of half an A Level. It allows students to develop their personal interests on a topic they feel genuinely passionate about. It is also a fantastic opportunity to improve the independent research and learning skills that are highly valued by universities and employers. The end result can be a journal, a model, a film, recording or performance or a presentation and a written report of between 1000 and 5000 words.
