17 students from Springwood Sixth Form this week have received outstanding results for their Extended Project Qualification (EPQ). 13 students achieved A*, 2 students achieved an A and a further 2 a B grade. This represents a phenomenal 76% A*, 88% A*-A and 100% A*-B; the best the school has ever seen. One student commented "I am so proud of my grade, I never thought I would get an A* and now my university has dropped my entry requirements by 1 grade. "It was great being able to gain a qualification in something I chose and enjoyed." Students completed the projects on a variety of topics including the making of a quad-copter, IVF and also Marvel's representation of women. The EPQ is very well regarded by universities and employers as it requires students to plan, undertake and evaluate a project of their choice. This may be a mini dissertation, an artefact, a performance or a report. The students work independently alongside a mentor who will support and guide them in completing their project. A massive well done to all involved.
