The Level three Extended Project is offered to students in order to extend and personalise their academic study. It is expected that the overwhelming majority of year 12 will complete this qualification.
Students benefit in particular from learning to work independently to explore a topic which is of interest to them in depth and present it in a coherent, logical and academically sound manner. The topic is the personal choice of the student! We have had some amazing and challenging ideas for projects many of which explore topics outside the curriculum e.g. The Law, Criminal Justice, Psychological research, Geology, Jewellery making, Architecture, Manufacturing, Entrepreneurship, Dance, Theatre Costume Design, Textiles, Fashion Design, Veterinary Science, Ethics etc.
Many students use the opportunity afforded by the project to explore an area they are interested in pursuing for their degree and thus having a topic on which to speak with confidence at interview. This has been of benefit to many students including those applying to Oxbridge.
