For our highest achievers, the Academy offers the Extended Project Qualification which is equivalent to half an A-Level and enables students to pursue a topic of their choice in greater depth. This is led by our EPQ co-ordinator and is enhanced through university visits for academic research and lectures.
Research by Southampton University has shown that this course gives students a much higher chance of being successful in higher education. The skills and qualities students develop on the course prepares them for the demands of level 4 study.
There are many opportunities for pupils to learn about the wider world and to prepare for their next steps.
