Year 12 students deliver their Extended Project Qualification Presentations

Congratulation to Year 12 students on completing their EPQ presentations

Alongside A Level studies our Year 12s were given the option to complete an Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). Designed to extend and develop our students' skill set beyond A Level studies, the EPQ is a student-led project which involves comprehensive planning and research in order to write a 5,000-word essay on a topic of their choice.

On Wednesday evening parents and staff were invited into our Sixth Form to listen to students presenting their projects. The presentation element of the qualification counts towards the final mark and allows students to demonstrate the in-depth research and planning that they had put into their essays, as well as presenting and answering questions using their extensive knowledge of their chosen subject.

By taking part in the EPQ our students have been able to show effective independent learning skills and problem-solving abilities. Along with the confidence they've gleaned from presenting their research in front of staff and parents, these skills are vital for preparing students for the next chapter of their professional life after Lingfield College. 

The subjects that our students chose to conduct their research on were:
