Lights, Camera, Action! EPQ students take part in a day of presentations, debate and discussion

As part of the Extended Project Qualification, students are required to present their project in an accessible manner to a non-specialist audience. Each student has been involved with their presentation for over a year, with the presentation acting as a culmination point.

This year's cohort put on a wide-ranging display of presentations including reflections on: 'Immortality in antiquity', 'The controversy of Euthanasia' and 'Antibiotic's Apocalypse'.

It was a pleasure to see how diverse our Sixth Former's interests were and the detail they went into to master their topic area with such confidence and skill. Such an experience will no doubt prepare them well for life after Sixth Form.

For information about the benefits of the EPQ go to the:

Students present on topics ranging from CO2 emissions to the influence of Social Media.

Once again students at Newcastle-under-Lyme School have delivered a strong set of A Level results with 57 per cent of entries being awarded A* to B grades.

Furthermore, the School has seen an increase in the proportion of entries gaining the highest A* award as we continue to strive to deliver the highest academic quality and value to all our students.

12 out of 84 students achieved at least three A Levels at A* and A grades. Choi Ling Yu achieved all three subjects at A* gaining her a place to read Medicine at Birmingham University.

Ananya Arora achieved 2 A*s and 2 As. She will take up a place to read Medicine at Selwyn College, Cambridge.

Places were also taken up at some of the UK's most prestigious universities including St Andrews, University College London and the London School of Economics.

Headmaster, Nick Vernon commented, "These results are a great credit to the School. We know we send these students on their way well equipped to embrace their future opportunities."
