OVER 40 Palmer’s College students showcased their final projects at the End of Year Extended Project Show on Wednesday 22 March.
The exhibition featured a diverse range of projects, from the world of hip hop, body image and fashion, to paganism, gun control and cooking.
The Extended Project qualification is highly regarded by universities and is equivalent to half an A-level and allows students to produce a focused piece of work on a topic of their choice. Universities support and value the EPQ as evidence of a student’s ability to use a range of skills that are vital for successful study in higher education.
Student Edward Walls (pictured) said: “I enjoyed working on a project of my own choice and researching a subject I am really interested in. It is also great preparation for what it will be like to study at university”
After Palmer’s College Edward would like to go on to university to study Paleontology. Kathy North, Extended Project Co-ordinator, said: “This event is a superb way for students to showcase their talents and creativity. The majority of the students have taken this course as an additional qualification to stretch and challenge themselves in preparation for university or work and they should be incredibly proud of their achievement.”
