EPQ at ARK Putney
Projects are student-driven qualifications, giving them the freedom and responsibility to select topics and projects they are interested in.
When completing a project qualification, students follow a clearly structured process: they plan, research their topic and create a product. The product of their project can be in one of three formats:
- a research-based written report
- a production* (eg charity event, fashion show, sports event etc)
- an artefact* (eg a piece of art, a computer game, a realised design).
*supported by a written report.
This work is all recorded in their Production Log and, finally, students deliver a presentation.
During the process, they develop as independent, reflective learners and acquire knowledge and transferable skills that are invaluable for further study and the workplace.
Students are assessed on the product of their project and on the process itself.
At least 5 A*-B passes at GCSE
