Extended Project Qualification Presentation Evening.
On Monday night, 20th March, we hosted our first EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) Presentation evening: pupils have completed projects on topics as diverse as horology, solar positioning systems, 20th century standards of beauty, and skateboard design, among a host of others.
Staff and other pupils were overwhelmed by the standard of the work done, and by the maturity and ambition with which it was carried out. We hope it will inspire many more of the current Lower Sixth to attempt an EPQ next year. The qualification is highly prized by universities, who value the independent study skills it fosters in preparation for Higher Education.
We hope to be able to offer parents and younger pupils a chance to see more of what this year’s EPQ pupils have achieved soon. More details to follow…
