Please note, this is an enrichment course, not part of a students’ main programme of study.
The EPQ is a piece of independent work of a student’s choice, which can either be an artefact or an extended piece of academic writing. The focus is on research and planning skills leading to a final piece. There are a number of specialist routes available including through one of the subject academies. Students are encouraged to be creative and innovative. The work completed cannot be connected to any aspect of their A Level subject. This is assessed at A level standard and as such an A* is achievable. It boosts university and employment applications.
September – completed in Year 12.
1 lesson per week.
