At Key Stage 5 we offer an Edexcel Level 3 Project Qualification, Extended Project.

Designed to develop learners’ critical, reflective, problem-solving and independent learning skills, the Extended Project supports students with the transition to higher education or the world of work. Students are encouraged to choose topics for which they have a passion and complete either; a 6,000 word dissertation, design, make and evaluation an artefact or devise a performance. This qualification is internally standardised and then moderated by the exam board.
