The Extended Project Qualification is equivalent to an AS level.

The Extended Project is a major piece of individual project work in which you will have the opportunity to investigate a topic that is of particular interest to you. We have timetabled and taught lessons should you chose to complete the EPQ. Students who chose to take the EPQ often have a passion or interest in the topic they decide to research or design, outside of their A level studies. The project can be presented as a written report or an artefact which is based on research. In the past we have had a range of topics:

  • A study of the Chernobyl disaster through dance
  • How to design a sustainable new art block for the school
  • Hatshepsut and the impact of female leaders

In 2020 we introduced an Accelerated EPQ programme for students who are ready to take the challenge on to manage their work load in year 13. The traditional May launch will still continue.
