Students showcase their Extended Project Qualifications
Year 12 students have been working hard all year on completing their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). This requires students to undertake independent research on a topic of their choice, putting into practice skills that will be vital to them in the future. Students have taken ownership of their project, planned and executed it in order to produce a 5000 word essay.
Last night the final aspect of the EPQ, in which students must present their findings – and they certainly did not disappoint! They all spoke confidently and knowledgeably about their specialist field, impressing the Governors, teachers and parents who were present.
This year’s topics included:
“How far are we from achieving invisibility?”
“Should national hunt racing be banned in the UK?”
“Remaking blockbusters and sequels! Hit or miss?”
It was a wonderful evening and certainly provided all guests with a lot to think about!
