Many of  our sixth form students gain an EPQ qualification in addition to their A levels.

What is the EPQ?

EPQ is an exciting qualification that allows students to pursue their own academic interests to AS level. Students decide on their own topic of study, set their own assessment question and work independently towards producing a final piece – either a dissertation, field study, original artefact or a performance.

Universities have responded very favourably to the introduction of the EPQ as they feel it allows students to demonstrate key skills that they will need when they begin undergraduate study.

EPQ is a highly rewarding qualification that allows students to set their own academic agenda, pursue areas of particular interest and go beyond the boundaries of exam specifications.
