Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) success
For the third consecutive year since the launch of the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) at Lingfield, students have achieved 100% A to B grades. This January, sixteen Year 13 students yet again obtained exceptional results, with an incredible 5A*s, 7As and 4B grades. The EPQ is a highly regarded academic qualification equivalent to half an A Level, for which students undertake an in depth research-based project focusing on a range of skills, including high-level critical thinking and data analysis. These superb results will undoubtedly aid students in securing places in top universities and throughout their academic and professional careers thereafter. We would like to congratulate them all for their hard work and dedication which has led to these outstanding grades.
