EPQ Presentation Evening

Posted On: 26/02/20

Over 30 students in Year 13 have undertaken considerable additional work in their free time to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). This stand-alone qualification, equivalent to an AS level, is awarded for an independent research project and has become increasingly valued by the top universities.

Yesterday, the students presented their findings in a trade-fair stye event in the George Young Building, to show and talk about what they have done to parents, members of staff, governors and other Sixth Formers.

The subjects studied span a wide range of areas including architecture, health and medicine, finance and economics, human rights, quantum, nuclear and space physics, conservation, and robotics,  just to name a few.

All visitors were asked to give feedback to each of the students on their presentations as this is a required component of the EPQ. We received lovely comments from visitors who were impressed by the range and quality of projects on display.

One of our governors commented: "Wonderful afternoon listening to some remarkable EPQ presentations. The Year 13 students are to be congratulated on the diverse range of topics and breadth of research both inside and outside their A level studies."

Well done to all students who presented their EPQs.
