The Extended Project QualificationStudents in the Sixth Form can opt to carry out an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). The qualification is equivalent to an AS Level course that involves a university style research project. It can be submitted in either an essay or artefact form and culminates in a presentation in front of an audience.
The EPQ is well supported within SPH Sixth Form and is suitable for self-motivated, self-directed students who are eager to explore their own area(s) of study.
