Extended Project (EPQ) at Stratford upon Avon School

Course description

The EPQ is a new qualification. It requires students to create “a single piece of work, requiring a high degree of planning, preparation and autonomous working. The projects that students complete will differ by subject, but all will require persistence over time and research skills to explore a subject independently in real depth.”

Students may study any topic they wish; there is no requirement for students to study a topic within the range of subjects offered at A Level.

Entry requirements

The EPQ is intended to be accessible to students with a wide range of abilities. Students undertaking the EPQ will need to demonstrate a great deal of commitment and motivation, and an ability to work independently. Students who have difficulty completing coursework or handing in work on time would be advised to consider other options.


The Project Supervisor will be a teacher chosen so that the interests of the teacher and of the student overlap. They will be responsible for overseeing the development of the project during regular meetings with the student and assessing the project once it is completed.

How to apply

If you want to apply for this course, you will need to contact Stratford upon Avon School directly.
