The Extended Project Qualification at The Cherwell School

Course description

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is an exciting initiative which allows students to extend their studies beyond their A level courses and prepare for university/future careers.

Importantly the EPQ is worth half an A level (70 UCAS points) so can be used to support students’ applications to university.

The EPQ allows students to embark on a self-directed and self-motivated project. Students must choose a topic, plan, research and develop their idea and decide on a ‘finished’ product. The ‘finished product’ can take a variety of forms including:

  • A research based written report
  • A production
  • An artefact

Within school we support students with EPQ through:

  • Taught sessions in groups
  • One to one tutorials
  • Drop-ins

EPQ will be completed in Year 12 with most students submitting their finished products at the end of term 4.

For students following the typical A level route, EPQ will be an essential part of their programme in The Cherwell School sixth form.
