Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

Extended Project Qualifications (EPQ) are project based qualifications that are completed on top of your other A Levels.  To find out more please look at the information provided below.

EPQ Information

On Thursday 13th May, Year 12 and 13 students presented their EPQ research that they have undertaken over the last two years.

Alex - The impact of Covid-19 on education

Alex looked into The impact of Covid-19 on education and highlighted students and teacher perceptions of impact of the pandemic including the benefits that have arisen.

Reflecting on the experience Alex said: “If you're undertaking primary research (questionnaires, etc.) do it as soon as possible.  For me, organising the distribution of my survey took almost a month (within the school), therefore I've learned that organisation and discipline is key to staying on top of something. I've also learned that I find it difficult to use objective language and it's something I need to work on.”

Alex's Presentation

Olivia - The mysterious affair of the continued popularity of Agatha Christie

Olivia chose to do further research on one of her favourite childhood series of books and look at the popularity of Agatha Christie novels in modern society.  Her presentation helped the audience learn more about the author and the immense impact she had on female author recognition across the globe.

Olivia's Presentation

Rae - An evaluation of the current and experimental methods of plastic pollution cleaning technology

Rae from Year 12, shared the above project and has the following advice for future students: “If I had to give one piece of advice about the EPQ is make sure you’re organised.  Nobody chases you so you really learn how to manage your own time.”

Rae's Presentation

Eloise - Is it possible for those convicted of terrorism offences to be rehabilitated and successfully returned to society

Eloise in Year 13 had chosen to research if terror offenders could be successfully rehabilitated back into society.  It caused discussion in the audience and was a thought-provoking topic.

Eloise's Presentation

Evie - An investigation into the past, present and future uses of HeLa cells in medicine

Lastly, we had Evie‘s research into HeLa Cells and their use in research as well as the medical ethical issues that arise.  Her presentation highlights the racial and gender injustices that can occur in the medical field and the importance of educating ourselves on these.

Evie's Presentation

We are extremely proud of the students, parents and carers for all their hard work especially during a pandemic.

We look forward to next year’s cohort.
