Enlightening EPQ Evening

From supervolcanoes to time travel; the Nuremberg trials to black holes; the Extended Project Qualification (EPQ) presentation evening in early March proved to be as impressive as it was fascinating.

Fifteen Upper Sixth students mastered their nerves to give extremely impressive presentations based on nine months of research into their chosen fields. The presentations, which took place in either the school Library or Sixth Form Centre, lasted for 20 minutes in all including time for the students to field some very tricky questions.

The EPQ allows students the freedom to research a topic of their choice and personalise their learning. The topic for this may be an extension of a topic studied in the Lower Sixth, a topic that spans the different curriculum areas or something completely different.

“This is the third year I have been involved with EPQ at The Grange and the standard of presentations this year was simply outstanding. The depth of knowledge and research shown is a clear indication of what this qualification is all about. Well done everybody!” said Mr Andy Lumley, EPQ Co-ordinator at The Grange.
