In addition to studying for their 3 main A levels, students may elect to take an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification). This is a largely self-directed course of study that is roughly equivalent to half an A level credit towards university admission.
An EPQ allows individuals to choose their own research topic with each student being responsible for their own learning and development. The EPQ is a progressive way to encourage independent learning and is a useful aid for successful university applications.
The EPQ teaches new skills, such as independent research and project management. Completing the project engenders confidence and a sense of achievement. The EPQ offers students the opportunity to build a product or engage in high level research while providing a competitive advantage for university applications.
Although the subject of the EPQ is completely open to an individual’s interests, we encourage students to pursue projects that relate to their university course choices and will therefore be most likely to assist in their applications when writing personal statements and in potential interviews.

Amazing school. Great teachers. Absolutely recommend sending your son/daughter for A-levels and GCSE.
All I can say is, the college is well placed and no student will feel that he/she has been left alone.
I got my A level results what I deserved and I am happy with it.
The leadership and education at this school is fantastic, they really pushed me to do my best and as a result I got into the University of my choice. Teachers Séan and Michael are in particular really great, and I highly recommend them and the institution that they work within.
Spent two years here. The college is small so you get lots of one to one attention which is very helpful in sixth form. It’s a very friendly environment to be in and I would recommend it.
This is a wonderful school! The teachers not only care about academic success but also about each student's wellbeing. It has a very welcoming atmosphere and encourages everyone to achieve their objectives. I can't recommend it enough!
