Extended Project at St. Katherine's School

Course description

Students considering applying to universities are encouraged to take up the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) during Term 6 of Year 12. The EPQ is an opportunity for students to develop their critical thinking and project management skills, while assessing their ability to plan, carry out, report on and evaluate a project on a subject area of their choice.

This qualification carries up to 70 UCAS points, is widely accepted by universities and is ideal preparation for the demands of a degree course. Former students have completed projects on a range of subject areas such as, 'Is graffiti really Art?’, 'How has Newton contributed to scientific development?’ and ‘How is football influenced by the media?’
