We firmly believe that all students should have the opportunity to further their learning and skills as part of their programme of study. We have developed a wide range of enrichment opportunities that promote academic excellence, leadership and independence.
Extended Project Qualification is a single piece of work chosen by the student that demonstrates evidence of planning, preparation, research and autonomous working. Students can undertake a project on a topic of their own choosing, which may or may not be linked to their A Level subjects. This will develop their research and independent learning skills, which are essential for students progressing to higher education or employment. Students who are interested in studying the EPQ should have six GCSEs grade 9-5.

Young Enterprise is for the business-minded. Students find out what it’s really like to set up and run a business. You and your partners make all the decisions about your company, from raising the initial share capital through to designing your product or service, to selling directly to customers and ultimately winding up the company and paying taxes.
