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.

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