High Performance Academy 

For academic students who are likely to progress to the UK's top universities, which include Oxford and Cambridge, we offer a programme of tutoring, visits, guest lectures and an EPQ (Extended Project Qualification) project. 

Extended Project Qualification (EPQ)

This is a personal piece of work in which you demonstrate evidence of your ability to conduct independent research. It can be essay, project or an artefact about a topic which interests you and is worth half an A Level. Many universities take the EPQ project into account when they make their offer.
