The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) at The Sir John Colfox School

Course description

The Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) is an independent project carried out on a topic completely of the student's choice. It helps them to develop their own learning and performance as a critical, reflective and independent learner through applying decision making and problem solving skills. They need to plan, research, think critically, analyse evaluate and present.

Having chosen a topic that complements their studies at A Level or that is of personal interest, the students either write a 5000 word essay/report, create an artefact with a 1000 word essay that evaluates the process of production, or put on a performance with a 1000 word evaluation.

Entry requirements

No specific entry requirements other than five GCSE outcomes at A* - C.
